PENSCO launches network of providers and products for investors

PENSCO has launched The PENSCO Marketplace, a network of providers, products and services for alternative asset investors.

“Our goal is to be the go-to resource for individual investors and their advisors who want to hold alternative assets in their retirement accounts,” says Kelly Rodriques, chief executive of PENSCO. “Whether it is seeking a private placement opportunity in the expanding crowdfunding space, or using IRA funds to invest in a condominium or office complex, we will make it possible for investors to find the resources they need to help meet their long-term investment goals.”
 
As part of the launch, PENSCO is working with a number of new crowdfunding sites that give accredited investors access to private placement opportunities in a variety of industries. PENSCO has pre-reviewed many of the offerings found on the participating crowdfunding sites in an effort to expedite the ability to accept qualified retirement dollars. The crowdfunding sites initially featured include CircleUp, FundRise, HealthiosXchange, I-Bankers Direct, Rock The Post (a Onevest company), and Zanbato.
 
“Equity-based crowdfunding is an area that we are watching closely, as it continues to gain traction among self-directed IRA investors who are knowledgeable and passionate about investing in this space,” says Rodriques. “As more of these platforms come to market, we want to provide exposure to these investments for our existing and prospective clients.”
 
In addition to the crowdfunding sites, the launch of The PENSCO Marketplace also includes professional resources, such as access to attorneys and accountants who specialise in real estate, private placements and various other alternative investments and may be needed to help an investor facilitate his/her alternative asset investment.
