For 40 years, The Entrust Group has provided account administration services for self-directed retirement and tax-advantaged plans. Entrust can assist you in purchasing alternative investments with your retirement funds, and administer the buying and selling of assets that are typically unavailable through banks and brokerage firms.

Wondering what fees are associated with a self-directed IRA?

We are upfront about our fees and make them easy to understand. The four fee categories are establishment, recordkeeping, transaction, and termination.

Account
Establishment Fee

One-time account establishment fee for opening a self-directed IRA, per account

$50

Annual Account
Recordkeeping Fee

Billed quarterly  

Choose from two annual recordkeeping fee options:

Option 1 - Based on Number of Assets  
     
  Alternative Assets $299/asset
  Non-Recourse Loans $199/asset
  Precious Metals $150/year - unlimited assets
  Crowdfunding* $150/year - unlimited assets
     
 

All annual fees are billed in quarterly increments upon investment acquisition. A single alternative asset investment annual fee is $299 per year, charged $74.75 per quarter. For multiple investments, for example three alternative investments, the annual fee would be $897, charged $224.25 per quarter. Please note that a non-recourse loan is payable at a discounted rate of $199 per year. For example, a single investment coupled with a non-recourse loan would be charged $498 per year or $124.50 per quarter.

*The crowdfunding fee of $150/year for unlimited assets will only be applied to accounts that are investing with the following companies: WeFunder, SharesPost, Realty Mogul, Funders Club, EquityZen, and Crowdstreet.

 
Option 2 - Based on Asset Value (calculate using the table below) Min. $199 - Max. $1,995
   
 
If the account value is between Multiply the value by
$1 and $24,999
$25,000 and $49,999
$50,000 and $149,999
$150,000 and $299,999
$300,000 and up
0.0095
0.0070
0.0065
0.0060
$1,995 (max)

For example, if account value is $20,000, the annual recordkeeping fee would be $199 ($20,000 x .0095 = $190. However, $199 is the minimum fee.) If account value is $55,000, the annual recordkeeping fee would be $445.00, calculated by adding together the incremental amounts for each tier: Tier 1: $24,999 x .0095 = $237.49; Tier 2: $25,000 x .0070 = $175.00. Tier 3: $5,001 x .0065 = $32.51. Combining the number from all three tiers totals $445.00.
