Baby Boomers Beg Advisors for Truth on Self-Directed IRAs; PENSCO Trust Offers Mini-Symposium Series for Professional Advisors
The exploding IRA market is expected to hit the $5.6 trillion mark by 2011. Roughly 75% of Boomer retirees roll their 401(k) retirement funds into IRA accounts, and are begging for help truly diversifying beyond the default choice of stocks and bonds. PENSCO Trust is offering a symposium on self-directed IRAs for real estate and financial professional advisors.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 17, 2006 — PENSCOTrust.com, the forerunner in advanced self directed IRA education, has launched a new series of free mini-symposiums for tax attorneys, real estate pros, CPAs and financial planners who want to tap the emerging self-directed IRA market. The seminars, to be held in the fall in various cities, explain how advisors can deliver what IRA and 401(k) holders are asking for – safe and savvy, but little-known investment opportunities in private equities and real estate.

John F. Lampe, wealth manager, real estate broker and attorney discovered at a PENSCO Trust seminar that self-directed IRAs are, “the greatest underutilized wealth management tool available.” Only 2% of IRA investors have tapped into the self directed IRA market.
Untapped opportunities for financial and real estate professionals
Because most financial and real estate professionals aren’t yet experienced with investments outside the traditional stock market, many IRA holders have nowhere to turn for advice. Mark Robbins, VP of CTX Mortgage, Marin, CA, says, “I have gained tremendous knowledge, experience and industry recognition from PENSCO’s training programs. This has resulted in new business for me.”
“Most of our country’s wealth is in real estate and small business ownership,” says Tom Anderson, founder of PENSCO Trust Company, the only U.S. firm dedicated to the administration and custody of self-directed IRAs. “That’s why we’re passionate about educating professionals – so they can help their clients get the benefits of holding tangible non-traditional assets in their tax-deferred and tax-free IRA accounts,” Anderson said.
