Nov 11, 2020


Provident Remains Top-Ranked Custodian in Wealth Advisor Reader Survey for Fifth Consecutive Year


LAS VEGAS, NV November 10, 2020 – Provident Trust Group (Provident Trust), a self-directed IRA administrator and passive custodian, has been named the Best IRA Custodian by Wealth Advisor for the fifth straight year. In a survey earlier this year, subscribers of the publication ranked Provident Trust number one of twelve independent retirement custodians.


Established in 2008, Provident Trust serves more than 33,000 clients, with over $9 billion under custody. Provident Trust’s mission is to empower its customers to self-direct their retirement assets by offering innovative retirement plan solutions, ease of access, and an extraordinary customer experience.


“The caliber of our associates and the service they provide are outcomes of Provident Trust’s people-focused culture, and our emphasis on quality is about getting things right the first time,” said Jim Heiden, head of sales for Provident Trust. “Our clients’ goals and experiences guide everything we do, and that’s how we continually earn their confidence.”


Investment and product flexibility, fee transparency, and user-friendly technology further distinguish Provident Trust. The company specializes in the establishment and administration of qualified retirement accounts, including IRAs and Solo 401(k) accounts. It also offers a comprehensive range of trust and fund administration, asset custody, and related services. Provident Trust’s flat-fee structure is transparent and simple to understand—and means that clients will not be surprised by hidden transaction or other fees.


When it comes to technology, Heiden says, “We can serve our clients traditionally or digitally—the choice is theirs. However, we employ user feedback to ensure that when clients do engage with our technology, they will enjoy simple, intuitive experiences that help them accomplish their tasks easily, efficiently, and confidently.”
