May 3, 2016 –  The Entrust Group, a pioneer and leading provider in the self-directed IRA industry, has opened a new client-serving office in Phoenix, Arizona.

 “The Southwest is an attractive destination for people in or nearing retirement, many of whom understand the benefits of self-directed retirement plans,” said Jason Craig, President of Entrust. “According to a recent study on Real Estate Transactions in 2015, conducted by Entrust, we found Arizona to be the third most popular state for Entrust clients to invest in real estate, with 100% of the account holders investing in properties that are in-state. Having an office in the region allows us to offer more of the personal service and tailored education for investors, that Entrust is known for.”

Kevin Mark leads the Phoenix office. He brings more than 20 years of experience in business development management and sales in the residential and commercial real estate sectors to his position, including positions as the Regional Director of Business Development for the Washington Mutual 1031 Exchange Division and the Century 21 Real Estate Corporation. He also has extensive experience working with real estate investors as an agent. Previously, Mark was a financial advisor for Prudential Securities, where he specialized in retirement planning and tax-advantaged investment strategies.
