LAS VEGAS – Provident Trust Group (Provident), a wholly owned subsidiary of Ascensus that is headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada, has been honored by The Wealth Advisor (Wealth Advisor) as 2018’s Best IRA Custodian. This marks the fourth consecutive year that Provident has received this accolade.
Wealth Advisor has been America’s leading wealth management publication since 2009, providing news, opinion, and education for wealth managers and advisors alike. Results to determine the best IRA custodians list were compiled after receiving feedback from 200,000 subscribers. Provident ranked number 1 out of 12 registered independent retirement custodians, winning the majority favor by 68 percent.
According to Wealth Advisor readers, three factors were integral to securing the 2018 Best IRA Custodian distinction for Provident:
- Reputation and length of time in the business – Nearly all of the advisors surveyed cited this as a factor in their decision-making.
- Quality of service based on testimonials and referrals – Well over half of advisors cited word-of-mouth recommendations as critical.
- Availability of in-house experts – Just under half of the advisors considered the quality of providers’ staff in making their decisions.
“It’s an honor to be recognized once again by Wealth Advisor’s readers as the top IRA custodian in the country,” says Theresa Fette, president of Provident. “Provident’s stated mission has been to empower customers to self-direct their retirement assets through innovative retirement plan solutions, ease of access, and an extraordinary customer experience.
