Fast and friendly service. Would and have recommended Equity Trust to many investors. It is a great way to defer income or better, use a Roth and not pay any income taxes. :)

- Anonymous Trust Pilot Review

I have had my Roth IRA with Equity Trust Company for just under 20 years. I recommend ETC whenever asked or any time the subject of a self-directed IRA comes up in conversation. I do not hesitate to rate Equity Trust Company the highest rating possible, which in this case is limited to Five Stars, the maximum rating.
