Self-Directed IRA Events Launched by PENSCO Trust Company

Self-Directed IRA educational events hosted by PENSCO Trust Company will be held in various cities throughout the country at no charge. These free mini-symposiums are for tax attorneys, CPAs, financial advisors, real estate & mortgage professionals who want to tap the emerging self-directed IRA market.

San Francisco, CA, March 12, 2007 --( PENSCO Trust Company, the forerunner in advanced education for Self-Directed IRAs, has launched a new series of free mini-symposiums for attorneys, real estate professionals, CPAs and financial advisors who want to tap the emerging self-directed IRA market. The seminars explain how advisors can deliver what IRA and 401(k) holders are asking for – little-known alternative investment opportunities in private equities and real estate. The exploding self-directed IRA market is expected to hit the $5.6 trillion mark by 2011. Roughly 75% of Baby Boomer retirees roll their 401(k) retirement funds into IRA accounts, and are begging their advisors for help truly diversifying beyond the default choice of stocks and bonds. The next seminar is Thursday, March 15th in Bellevue, WA. Visit PENSCO Trust to find an event near you.

Carter Rankin, a registered representative at Welton Street Investments said, "I have attended tons of events and seminars, and PENSCO's event met and exceeded all of my expectations. A great ROI, in terms of my time!"

Only 2% of IRA investors have tapped into this emerging market. Anderson blogs about self-directed IRAs at
