$50 ESTABLISHMENT FEE
A Roth Individual Retirement Account (IRA) is a retirement account which lets you save and invest after-tax dollars. When you originally contribute funds into your Roth IRA account, they have already been taxed. As time goes on, the investments grow tax free and there are no additional taxes on regular distributions because you have already paid taxes on these funds.
In a Roth IRA, you can make investments to increase the value of your account and collect more money for your ideal retirement. The only limitations on the investments made in a Roth IRA are those restricted by the IRS, and include a very limited number of items.
Unlike a Traditional IRA, there are no age restrictions on when you must stop contributing to your account. However, Roth IRA contributions must be made with earned income, and that income must fall within certain Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) limits.
Tax-free growth on all contributions placed into your account over time.
All annual contributions made to a Roth IRA can be withdrawn at any time (tax-free) as these contributions are already taxed at the time of contribution.
NO DISTRIBUTION REQUIREMENTS
A Roth IRA does not require you take distributions based on age, unlike other tax-deferred retirement plans such as a Traditional IRA or a 401(k) Plan.
TAX FREE WITHDRAWALS
ALL withdrawals after the age 59½ will be tax free! Any gains made on your account investments are not taxed when withdrawn after you as the account owner have reached age 59 ½.
REDUCE ESTATE TAX
If you leave an Estate large enough to be subject to estate taxes, a Roth IRA may be able to reduce estate taxes since tax dollars have already been subtracted.
FIRST-TIME HOME BUYER
Up to $10,000 in earnings withdrawals can be made from your Roth IRA, tax free, if the money is used to acquire a principal residence for a first-time buyer. The owner must be the Roth IRA’s owner, their spouse, or their lineal ancestors and descendants and cannot have owned a home in the previous 24 months.
NOTE: Please visit www.irs.gov for a complete breakdown of the rules and regulations concerning Traditional IRAs. Certain restrictions apply regarding prohibited transactions.

Frequently Asked Questions
Here are a few of the most frequently asked questions asked when opening a self-directed account.
How do your fees differ from other custodians who handle traditional & alternative assets?
Provident Trust Group offers a flat-rate annual fee. This differs from many other alternative asset custodians who may increase your annual fee based on an increase in the number of assets you select, value of your assets, or even the purchase of a different asset class.
Most custodians of traditional assets collect fees and/or commissions based off of the amount of trades or recommendations of investment choices. For our full fee schedule, click here.
Can Provident Trust Group provide tax or legal advice regarding your investment?
No. If you should need tax or legal advice regarding your investment, you may engage a specialized tax law firm to provide the needed advice. Attorney-client privilege would then exist between you and the firm of your choice.
What types of investments are prohibited with retirement accounts?
The IRS does not state which investments are permissible in a qualified account or retirement plan, but they do state specific asset classes that are prohibited. The IRS currently prohibits IRAs to invest into Life Insurance, Collectibles and S-Corps. Some examples of collectibles include:
- Metals – with exceptions for certain kinds of bullion,
- Coins – (but there are exceptions for certain coins),
- Alcoholic beverages, and
- Certain other tangible personal property.

Can my account invest with other partners, including myself?
