Private equity investing (also known as private entity investing) usually refers to providing capital to companies that are not publicly traded in exchange for a percentage of ownership or interest. Once only accessible to high-net-worth individuals or “accredited investors,” private equity opportunities are now available to the average investor.
These options may be found through equity crowdfunding platforms or angel investing opportunities, for example. Talk to an IRA Counselor about the broad range of private equity assets that can be held in an IRA or other retirement account, including:
Investing in private equity in your retirement account offers you the opportunity to buy into companies
that aren’t publicly traded for potentially significant profits, while securing your financial future.
Historically better returns than public markets
Ability to directly invest in businesses/industries that interest you or align with your values
Accessible to the average investor through a range of equity crowdfunding and other opportunities

I have been using Equity Trust Company for over 10 years to close my private placement transactions. They are very thorough and responsive. If something is missing in my documents they will let me know so that I can get it resolved quickly and be able to close on time.

I had an opportunity to invest in a startup with significant gain potential, but it required moving quickly. I had to cash out a Roth IRA at ******, open a new Roth IRA at Equity Trust, move the funds from ****** to Equity Trust, then get the investment approved and the funds transferred to the investment company. We did all this in basically eight days. It took ****** four days to transfer the funds. Equity Trust was on top of it the whole time, and held my hand through it all.

I have been using Equity Trust for my private IRA investments for about 10 years now. They have always been quick to respond to any questions that I have and to process the investment in a very timely manner. Their fee structure is fair as well. You can’t find a better company to deal with for your private equity investments than Equity Trust!
