Roseland, NJ (PRWEB) May 01, 2012
Next Generation Trust Services, LLC, a third-party administrator of self-directed IRAs based in Roseland, N.J., will exhibit at the national conference of the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA) conference from May 8-11, 2012 at the Hilton Chicago in Chicago, Illinois. Representing Next Generation Trust Services will be founder and CEO Jaime Raskulinecz and Linda Varas, Principal.
Next Generation Trust Services provides comprehensive account administration and transaction support for self-directed IRAs. The firm works with independent fee-based financial advisors and their clients who wish to make their own investment decisions about a broader array of assets that are allowable in self-directed IRAs. These nontraditional investments include real estate, precious metals, commercial paper, loans, mortgages, commodities, and much more. Individuals who already know and understand these alternative investments may build a more eclectic retirement portfolio through a self-directed IRA, with the same tax advantages of typical retirement accounts.
“As investors become more aware of all the options available through self-direction, it becomes more important for their trusted financial advisors to learn as much as they can about this retirement wealth-building strategy,” said Raskulinecz. “They need to be able to answer their clients’ questions, and learning about self-direction will help them provide the best advice to their clients,” she added. In addition, Raskulinecz said that financial advisors may earn fees on those nontraditional investments held by Next Generation Trust Services as long as they are advising their clients on those assets—or they may invest in these assets themselves within their own retirement portfolios.
Raskulinecz and her team offer free educational seminars throughout the year on the topic of self-directed IRAs to individuals, financial planners, CPAs, and attorneys involved in estate and retirement planning, and have led workshops for continuing education (CE) credits for the New Jersey Society of CPAs and some NAPFA Study Groups. At prior NAPFA conferences, they have led study groups for which participants earn CE credits, part of Next Generation Trust’s commitment to educating more people about the many options and benefits of self-direction.
“With the unpredictable stock-and-bond markets, savvy investors are looking into self-direction, especially if they are already investing in the allowed alternative investments outside of their regular IRAs,” said Raskulinecz.
