The self-directed IRA market is experiencing dramatic growth as investors pursue alternatives to traditional securities.
LOUISVILLE, CO (PRWEB) August 23, 2012
New Direction IRA has named Steven Bryant as the company’s first Chief Financial Officer. Bryant expands New Direction IRA’s management team during a period of rapid growth for the company driven by its leadership in the self-directed IRA market. The self-directed IRA market is experiencing dramatic growth as investors pursue alternatives to traditional securities and seek more control over their retirement planning, and New Direction IRA has long been an industry leader in providing management, education and record-keeping services to self-directed IRA investors.
As the CFO for New Direction IRA, Bryant will be responsible for oversight of New Direction IRA's internal financial operations. He will be called on to help shape overall company strategy and be a catalyst for client financial systems improvements. He will also work with custodial and regulatory oversight representatives to ensure that appropriate client transaction documentation systems are in place for compliance with State and Federal banking regulatory requirements.
Bryant has 20 years of experience in the financial industry, including several years supporting self-directed IRA clients in his role at The Entrust Group. In that position, one of his most important responsibilities was managing compliance oversight to ensure that clients retain the tax-advantaged status of their investments. Bryant has also served as a commercial loan officer at Zions First National Bank, Wells Fargo Bank and First Security Bank Mortgage, giving him extensive experience in investment evaluation and management. Bryant earned his M.B.A. from Pepperdine University and earned his B.S. in Business Administration/Finance at Southern Utah University.
“Steven is a great addition to our team, and his experience will be a tremendous asset to New Direction IRA,” said Bill Humphrey, CEO. “Steven’s years of experience supporting self-directed IRA holders and his expertise in managing compliance processes for tax-advantaged investments will directly benefit our clients. He will also be highly valuable to our management team as New Direction continues to grow at a rapid rate.”
