A client explains why he chose IRA Financial!

I first tried working with [another provider]…When I proceeded to my due diligence, I was so disappointed by multiple aspects of the trust company documents that I backed out of the entire transaction…I then turned to IRA Financial.

Having been burned once, I snooped around to identify the trust company (IRA Financial Trust), found their “forms” webpage, and reviewed all the relevant forms before proceeding. Overall, the application process with IRA Financial was not too painful. Even better, they did signatures via DocuSign and in the process presented all the relevant documentation including information about fees and minimum account balance requirements.
