Cleveland, Ohio (PRWEB) February 17, 2012
When Equity Trust put out the call for examples of tax-free wealth building at its best for its Self-Directed Investor of the Year contest, the response was amazing. Now one top client will share the impressive results of her self-directed investing during an upcoming webinar.
Lorraine Walls of Virginia was chosen among more than 70 impressive entries to receive Equity Trust Company’s 2011 Self-Directed Investor of the Year title. Lorraine and her husband, Richard, grew tired of losing large chunks of their retirement fund in the stock market. They decided to take charge and found a way to secure a comfortable future for themselves and their four adopted special-needs children.
One of the most amazing parts about the process was that they had no prior experience in real estate investments or self-directed IRAs.
“We have lost (in the past) and others have taken advantage of us, and we thought self-directed investing was too good to be true. But it works. We are two regular people from working-class backgrounds who are now very comfortable and continue to live off one paycheck to secure our futures and our family’s future,” says Equity Trust Self-Directed Investor of the Year Lorraine Walls.
A Self-Directed IRA 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. Lorraine and Richard have mostly placed their investments in real estate, achieving returns as high as 21 percent. They’ll reveal the process they use to find these investments during a free webinar February 23, 2012 at 8 p.m. ET. Find the details here: http://tinyurl.com/79rgqng
