CLEVELAND, OHIO, JANUARY 24, 2022
Equity Trust Company, a leading, technology-enabled custodian of alternative assets in retirement accounts, has again received accolades from two respected national publications, affirming its standing as the self-directed account custodian of choice for individual investors as well as institutional firms and financial professionals.
For a third consecutive year, Equity Trust was named Best Overall Self-Directed IRA Custodian in Investopedia’s listing of top custodians. According to Investopedia: “In the competitive SDIRA arena, experience counts, and Equity Trust has a lot of it. It has put its hindsight to work in creating a well-rounded offering supported by superior customer service, making it our choice as the best overall SDIRA provider.”
This is the second straight year that U.S. News & World Report included Equity Trust Company in its assessment of the best IRAs, “7 IRA Accounts to Consider for 2022.” Mentioned alongside large, traditional-asset-holding retirement account custodians, Equity Trust Company was the only self-directed IRA company (custodian that holds non-traditional assets) to make the list.
With more than 45 years of financial services experience and innovative technology that simplifies the process for investors, asset providers, fintech firms, financial professionals, and more, Equity Trust Company is unparalleled among non-traditional account custodians.
