Self-Directed Investor of the Year, Winning Strategies, to be Revealed in Webinar

By Heather Taylor1 Comments

For the second year, Equity Trust Company put out the call for examples of tax-free wealth building at its best, and once again, the company was flooded with stories of investors making double-digit (sometimes triple-digit!) profits in their IRAs, or finding unique, creatively conceived deals to benefit their retirement funds. A winner has been chosen, and he will share his profit-building strategies during an upcoming free webinar.

The investor that stood out the most to us, earning him the title of 2012 Self-Directed Investor of the Year, is Richard of eastern New Jersey. Through his various self-directed deals, Rich – whose background is in technology, not investing – showed some of the scope of possibilities rich alpertwhen it comes to investing in alternatives with an IRA. His creative, enterprising deals included using his and several family members’ retirement and education savings accounts to come up with the capital to fund an investment that would benefit all the accounts.

Rich’s portfolio also illustrates the flexibility of IRAs which allow investors to participate in unique deals. For example, he has invested in a franchised FedEx delivery route using his retirement account.

The vehicle that makes Rich’s wealth-building possible is a Self-Directed IRA, which enables an individual to invest his or her retirement savings in the stock market as well as alternative investments like real estate, renewable energy, precious metals and much more.

Rich will join us to share his experience with self-directed IRAs during a free webinar Tuesday, April 9, 2013 at 8 p.m. ET. During this webinar, he’ll reveal what it took to get started with self-directed investing, the process he uses to find his deals and how the average investor can replicate them.

Rich will also share his winning strategies in-person during a special session at the Equity University Networking Conference, which will take place from September 19-23, 2013, at the Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate.
