The Equity Trust Advantage

From the beginning, in 1974, Equity Trust’s mission has been clear: to help investors recognize the opportunities presented by self-directed investing within an IRA. We are committed to this mission and it is the core of the Equity Trust Advantage.

The Equity Trust Advantages are Clear:

  • Investment Diversity and Freedom:  An account at Equity Trust gives you the ultimate in portfolio diversification.  In addition to holding traditional investments such as stocks, bonds, and mutual funds, you can use your IRA, 401(k), or other retirement plan to invest in: real estate, private placements, notes/deeds of trust, tax liens, foreign currency and much more.
