The Washington-based self-directed IRA company announces strategic partnerships with several private equity and private placement firms for assistance in properly structuring individual retirement accounts for unique and preferred private placement opportunities.

“With the unique checkbook-control structure of a self-directed IRA, individual investors can take advantage of some of the growth opportunities available in private equity that are not available in public markets,” says Silverstone VP of Marketing Troy Jenkins. “Nowhere else can individuals get in early in a preferred way and see massive growth than in private equity markets,” says Jenkins.

This is particularly helpful with existing deals that need follow-on investments for expansion and growth capital.
