The Entrust Group will help educate investors on protecting their hard earned savings from Ponzi schemes.

August 20, 2012 - In a recent article published by NPR, Boston University Law Professor, Tamar Frankel, states, “losses from Ponzi schemes and other related frauds cost investors about $10 billion a year.” Investors who want to minimize their potential for falling victim to untrustworthy investments can learn more at an upcoming Workshop presented by The Entrust Group, an acknowledged authority and premier provider of account administration services for self-directed IRAs.

“The Power to Invest: Due Diligence & Private Placements Workshop” will examine ways investors can protect their hard earned savings from Ponzi schemes, scams, and fraud. The Workshop will also feature an advanced education session on investing in private placements with a self-directed IRA, an investment strategy often abused by scammers. It takes place on October 18, 2012, from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. PST, at the Courtyard Marriott in Marina Del Rey, CA.

“In today's uncertain and unstable environment, investors are turning to alternative investment strategies,” says Hubert Bromma, founder and CEO of The Entrust Group. “However, they are not always conducting proper due diligence in order to safeguard their savings. We have always stressed the importance of due diligence and incorporate it into the education we provide to investors. We are proud to present this Workshop, to assist in providing the education investors need to help protect their investments.”

Workshop topics and agenda will include:

  • Responsibilities of self-directed investors
  • Private placements, in-depth
  • Top 5 DOs and DON’Ts of self-directed investing
  • Tips to help avoid fraud
  • 60-minute interactive panel discussion
  • Networking sessions with savvy investors

Bromma will be a featured speaker at the Workshop, alongside Jay Turo, Co-founder and CEO of Growthink, Nicolas Morgan, Partner at DLA Piper, and Munzer Ghosheh, Business Development Manager at The Entrust Group.
