No! You are allowed to access any investment allowed by the IRS by bringing your own deal.

Our investment partners on https://www.rocketdollar.com/partners are a great place to get started. Rocket Dollar does not endorse, advise, or recommend any deal or investment on these platforms. These partners can also be a resource to educate you about investment classes you are already interested in or wish to learn more about.
