One of the greatest advantages of Self-Directed IRAs is that you have unlimited investment options. With so many options, sometimes it can be difficult to hone in on a single opportunity.

Let’s say that you recently sold your first investment property. You’ve liquidated your asset, you have an abundance of undirected cash in your account, but you’re not sure what to do with it. You can use your Entrust Client Portal to stroll over to Entrust Connect, where you just might find your next investment.

Our online marketplace, Entrust Connect allows you access to private offerings that other Entrust clients have invested in. The investment offerings on our platform are continually added and updated. The types of offerings available span the gamut: from investing in oversea real estate opportunities to coffee manufacturers, technology companies, producers of innovative nutritional supplements, and many more.

Offerings range from investments of $5K to $200K, so you can find the right fit for your budget.

Getting Started

To view the opportunities on Entrust Connect, you need to opt-in. Visit the Entrust Connect tab and click Accept. If you don't see this as an option, you can opt-in via "Your Preferences" in the upper right corner of your Entrust Client Portal. After you accept, you’ll be able to explore multiple alternative asset opportunities that other Entrust clients have invested in.

All offerings are client-sourced. Entrust does not recommend any investments. Click on any of the offerings to find in-depth information about the available investment and the requirements for investing.

Clients are encouraged to conduct thorough due diligence on any prospective investments.

The Investment Process

The process to invest in one of the offerings is simple.

Clients can start by sending a secure message to the investment sponsor. After the investment has been agreed to by both parties (Entrust client and investment sponsor), the required paperwork is executed and submitted electronically. Investments are usually funded within 3-5 business days.
