"Our family made two substantial purchases with a self-directed IRA (through Equity Trust). The entire process was new to us and Equity Trust made it smooth and easy for us. They came highly recommended to us…and we highly recommend them to anyone looking for smart people and smart thinking to help them build a solid financial foundation and a secure future."

"I started with Equity Trust about eight years ago. We've been extremely successful in growing our IRAs and it's been a wonderful help having Equity Trust as our custodian. The website is phenomenal. It's very easy to navigate and upload documents. Every transaction has closed on time. We've never had a delay with documents or wire transfers, and everything's been done correctly every time."

TrustPilot review

"I've been a client for about five years and I love Equity Trust. From the beginning, when I first rolled my money over, I thought it was going to be very complicated. But I simply gave them my former statement, they walked me through the process, asked lots of questions, and there it was. And every time I need something, the service is awesome."

Gina B.


"The best company to handle your self-directed IRA. Their superior customer service team is out of this world. I have used other companies and they can't compare with Equity Trust Company."
