Alternative Asset Investing: Leveraging Self-Directed IRAs 

Self-Directed IRA/401(k) investing, although widely misunderstood and underutilized, allows investors to architect a diversification strategy with assets often not found in traditional asset allocation models. Assets including, but not limited to, real estate, mortgage notes and trust deeds, small businesses, joint ventures, private equity, and precious metals. 

Kent Kinzer will cover:

    • 7 types of tax-advantaged accounts available at Equity Trust
    • What type of self-directed IRA investments are allowable by the IRS
    • Real-life case studies of self-directed IRA success
    • Answers to other common questions about how the investment process works and what documents are required

Kent will also talk about the comprehensive self-directed IRA/401(k) educational Wealth Building Workshop that will provide useful tools, resources, and insight into the methods used by Equity Trust clients. The tactics discussed will demonstrate methods to potentially eliminate capital gains tax and ordinary income taxes within your real estate and or alternative investment assets through tax-advantaged retirement accounts.  Attendees will have the opportunity to leave this training with the knowledge and guidance to formulate and implement alternative investing into their financial plan. 

Early Bird Session 6:30pm 

FREE Admission and Free Deli sandwiches for the first 125 attendees! Be sure to arrive early for networking.

The STLREIA™ is an excellent organization for anyone who owns investment real estate or wants to own real estate.  There is something for everyone, from the experienced investor to the first time buyer.  The monthly meetings are well run, informative and fun.  There is an excellent mix of speakers from the local experts to the national gurus.  There are also plenty of opportunities to network with those who know more than you, as well as the opportunity for you to share your expertise in mentoring others.  The monthly newsletters are an added bonus and are filled with interesting articles and tidbits. Having been a member of several REIAs in various cities, I highly recommend this one!  Come early to attend the monthly help clinics, and ask about the networking lunches.

It is not often that an organization translates into so many benefits.  However, the STLREIA™ is such an organization.  We joined and have been very pleased. The mini help sessions allow for a broad base of information covering many relevant topics regarding the "joys" of being in the home rental business. Topics can range from great bargains for appliances, materials, or great contractors to how to deal with pets, pest, or poor tenants.  We always enjoy the main speaker as well. We have learned many helpful tips even though we have been in the rental business for 25 yrs. The best part about being a member of STLREIA™ is that all the great tips generally translate into some cost saving measure or a way to increase your income.  And lastly, the monthly newsletter is wonderful. It's a win win situation.  We live 150 miles south of St. Louis and though we can't make every meeting, we find every trip rewarding.
