Next Generation Trust Services, an administrator of self-directed retirement plans, will co-present “The Alternative Market and Self-Directed Retirement Plans,” a free informational webinar about investing in startup companies on Tuesday, December 10, 2013 from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Insights into equity funding through a self-directed retirement plan, as well as the criteria for qualifying as an accredited investor will be shared. To register for the webinar go to http://bit.ly/1cqL3f0; the webinar ID number is 138-827-827.
Jared Lopez, sales and marketing coordinator for Next Generation Trust Services, will discuss the types of non-publicly traded alternative assets allowed in self-directed retirement plans; presenting with Lopez will be Randy Mitterling of FNEX, an online transactional portal where early-stage companies seeking equity funding may list their investment opportunities for accredited investors. Mitterling will explain how FNEX works for those seeking to invest in early-stage businesses and provide an overview of investing in alternative assets. The general solicitation for funding by startups became possible with the implementation in September of Title II of the JOBS Act.
FNEX enables accredited investors to make direct investments into private companies, hedge funds, managed futures, and private placements—just some of the many nontraditional investments allowed through self-direction. With self-direction, the account holder makes all his or her own investment decisions from a broad array of traditional and nontraditional assets; the transactions are executed and all paperwork and reporting are handled by a neutral third-party administrator, such as Next Generation Trust Services.
“Equity funding has long been a part of the self-directed retirement portfolios of high-net-worth individuals,” said Jaime Raskulinecz, founder and CEO of Next Generation Trust Services. “In fact, during the 2012 presidential campaign it was revealed that Mitt Romney built much of his wealth with this strategy through his self-directed retirement accounts. Being able to do so through approved online portals such as FNEX now allows a wider audience of investors to participate in these investment opportunities.”
