What does this mean for our start up issuers?

With more than $9 trillion in IRA accounts, an efficient, reliable self-directed IRA provider like New Direction Trust means access to a larger pool of potential investor dollars.

According to the Investment Company Institute, 43 Million US Households Own an Individual retirement Account (IRA.)

IRAs have been one of the fastest growing components of the US retirement market during the past decade. Totaling $9.2 trillion in assets at the end of March 2018, IRA assets represented nearly one-third of the $28.0 trillion US retirement market. Assets held in IRAs have increased on average 10 percent per year over the past 25 years, from $993 billion in 1993.

Millions of Americans use IRAs to save for retirement. An estimated 43.9 million US households, or 35 percent, owned IRAs as of mid-2017. An estimated 35.1 million households owned traditional IRAs, making it the most common type of IRA. A total of 24.9 million households owned Roth IRAs, and 7.6 million US households owned employer-sponsored IRAs such as SEP IRAs, SAR-SEP IRAs, or SIMPLE IRAs.


What does this mean for our investors?

The strategic alliance between RedCrow and New Direction Trust Co allows investors to use retirement savings in either TRADITIONAL or ROTH IRA accounts to invest in companies listed on the RedCrow site.

It has always been possible for IRAs to invest in non-traditional, alternative investments (including private equity and private debt); however, finding an IRA provider that allows alternative investments has historically been difficult. The IRS requires an authorized provider for every IRA, and there are still a limited number of qualified IRA custodians with the expertise and capacity required to support and service alternative investments in an IRA.

Why New Direction?

New Direction Trust is an industry leading passive custodian with more than 17,000 accounts and $2 Billion in assets under administration. The New Direction Trust team is knowledgeable, professional and deeply committed to quality customer service and support.
