For Insitu Biologics CEO Jim Segermark, providing the ability to invest using an IRA through Equity Trust Company has attracted new investors to his Reg A+ offering that wouldn’t otherwise have been able to participate.
“All of our IRA investors have transferred in; no one has used new money to open their IRA accounts,” he says. “We wouldn’t have gotten those investments if they hadn’t been able to use their IRA money.”

Additionally, he points out, the size of the IRA investments has been larger, on average, than cash investments – almost three times larger, in fact. “People tend to have cash in their IRAs that they aren’t actively utilizing, and some decide there’s no better place for it than the high-risk part of their portfolio,” Segermark explained.
“About 15-20% of our company’s investment equity comes from individuals utilizing tax-advantaged retirement accounts.”

Like Reliant, many investment firms are aggressively promoting IRAs as a vehicle to invest in their offering. Says Benson, some investors appreciate the chance to diversify their portfolio with non-correlated assets, like real estate.
