- Private non-traded investments such as BDCs or REITs*

*These investments are available to TD Ameritrade, but as of 12/10/2017 are not available to the TD Ameritrade SDBA accounts of the MDIG PSP. However, this may change in the future.
FINANCIAL PROFESSIONAL ACCESS
Participants have the option of managing the SDBA themselves or authorizing a financial professional to assist in managing their account. Participants also have the option to retain the asset management services of FPL Capital Management to manage their account(s).
Participants can establish a Self-Directed Brokerage Account with TD Ameritrade. If a participant utilizes a TD Ameritrade Advisor then the account will be upgraded to a TD Ameritrade Institutional account.
