If we are going to promote investment options for a truly a self-directed IRA then our clients should have the ability to invest in traditional and non-traditional assets.
Houston, TX (PRWEB) November 14, 2012
Quest IRA, Inc. is always on the cutting of innovations in the self-directed IRA industry. We create innovative classes, workshops and webinars to teach the public about their investment options in self-directed IRAs along with our competitive advantage of 24-48 hour funding times to keep Quest IRA ahead of the curve. The announcement to offer brokerage accounts in your IRA at Quest through Scottrade and Charles Schwab is no different. Now clients of Quest IRA will be able to invest in alternative assets like real estate, promissory notes, precious metals, private placements as well as traditional investments like stocks, bonds, mutual funds and interest baring accounts.
On December 1st 2012, Quest IRA Inc. will now be offering its clients the ability to open up brokerage accounts, with Scottrade and/or Charles Schwab, to invest in stocks, bonds and mutual funds with their account at Quest IRA Inc. The client will no longer have to transfer or rollover funds away from Quest IRA Inc. to another custodian to simply invest in stock, bonds or mutual funds.
“Even before changing our company name to Quest IRA Inc. in January of this year we were kicking around the idea of how to offer brokerage accounts to our clients,” said H. Quincy Long, President/Owner at Quest IRA Inc. “But the previous successor franchise we used to be a part of was very restrictive. When Quest IRA was able to break away from that structure to become its own company we were able to make decisions that best benefit our clients. So, my staff has been tirelessly working on how to get these brokerage accounts established and how to make it cost affective for our clients so they don’t have to transfer assets back & forth to wait 7-10 days for the transfer/rollover process to occur. Now our clients can move money from alternative to traditional investments in 2-3 business days, another great innovation from Quest IRA.”
Not all self-directed IRA administrators and custodians are the same. Quest IRA Inc. uses great free national and local events, which are open to the public, to help further the knowledge of self-directed IRAs and investment strategies within self-directed IRAs.
“I have been working on this for over a year,” stated Ryan Kimura, VP of Sales & Marketing at Quest IRA Inc. “If we are going to promote investment options for a truly a self-directed IRA then our clients should have the ability to invest in traditional and non-traditional assets. Quest IRA’s clients have been asking for this over the past few years and we have listened. It may have taken a little longer than expected but now, for a small fee, clients have a complete box of investment options available to them with one company, Quest IRA Inc.”
