The Self-Directed IRA Custodian With Excellent Service and Low Fees

IRAR Trust helps you and your clients build retirement wealth through alternative investments such as real estate, private placements, private equity, etc. in an IRA— and at a very low cost.

Here’s how we make it easy for individuals and businesses to take control of retirement funds— we keep it simple:

Real Service, Not Robots

At IRAR you always get immediate help anytime you call, email or visit. Try us!

Low, Transparent Fees

We build relationships based on trust and openness. That’s why we publish our rates— the most affordable in the industry.

$199 Annual Fee (includes your cash account and one asset)
$75 Additional Asset (per year)

Most self-directed IRA custodians charge on the value of the assets— as your retirement account grows, you pay more. At IRAR Trust Company our flat annual fee is per asset not based on the value of your account.

COMPARE SELF-DIRECTED IRA FEES

Self-Directed IRA Experts

Each IRAR team member has over 10 years (on average) of hands-on experience processing self-directed IRA transactions. They’ve seen it all, allowing them to anticipate what you or your client needs for a smooth transaction.

Self-Directed IRA Accounts Offered

For Individuals: Traditional IRA, Roth IRA

For Businesses: SEP IRA, SIMPLE IRA

As a self-directed IRA custodian, our team helps process transactions, keep records, and report to the IRS, as required by law. We also offer assistance in educating you about the investment process and the rules governing retirement accounts, but we do not provide:

  • Investment recommendations or guidance
  • Company endorsements
  • Products or investments
  • Legal, tax, or financial advice

Helping Investors Achieve Their Retirement Goals Since 1996

Our Story

Since founding IRAR in 1996, we made a deliberate choice to build the company based on trust with 100 percent of the focus on client needs. It’s this commitment that has led to decades of organic growth as the result of word-of-mouth referrals from satisfied business partners and clients across the nation.

Stability and Excellence
IRAR Trust is owned by IRA Resources, Inc. Founded by Liane Bathey in 1996, IRA Resources now IRAR, is one of the fastest growing self-directed IRA firms in the United States. With no outside investors, this allows the company to reinvest earnings back into the business— towards improvements that help support our white-glove service model— while keeping our fees lower than most trust companies in the self-directed retirement industry.

Industry Veterans at the Lead 

In 2017, we opened our Processing Center to maintain the prompt processing of transactions and client services.

With industry veterans at the lead, averaging 20+ years of experience, the IRAR team leverages a powerful combination of business growth expertise and hands-on, industry-specific knowledge to provide excellent services and low fees.

Compliance and Security

In 2018, we founded our own non-depository trust company to offer additional oversight. We are regulated directly by the South Dakota Division of Banking, the state and division with the most knowledge in working with self-directed IRA custodians.

Fast Track to the Present

IRAR continues to see 30% business growth year-over-year while placing high value on first-hand personal service at a cost-effective price. We are committed to sustaining our market-leading reputation for timely client service with a professional and personal touch.
