Ways to fund your account and start investing

"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."

"They are the best in the business for helping people who want a self-directed IRA. They are especially adept at helping people who want to invest in real estate in a traditional or Roth IRA. They have always handled my requests in a timely and professional manner."

Alan S.


"I started with Equity Trust about eight years ago and have been investing in real estate for almost 30 years. 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."

Jan D.

"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-direct 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."
