Frequently Asked Questions

Here are a few of the most frequently asked questions for self-directed retirement plans.
How does your fee structure differ from other custodians who custody traditional and 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.

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:

  • Artwork,
  • Rugs,
  • Antiques,
  • Metals – with exceptions for certain kinds of bullion,
  • Gems,
  • Stamps,
  • Coins – (but there are exceptions for certain coins),
  • Alcoholic beverages, and
  • Certain other tangible personal property.

For more information, click here for the IRS Website.

Can my account invest with other partners, including myself?
Yes, your IRA can invest with other partners and yourself individually. However, it is important to consult legal counsel in these situations to observe formalities and rules that may be associated with that investment.
Why is Provident Trust Group listed as the owner of my asset?
As custodian, Provident Trust Group owns the assets in each account for the benefit of (FBO) your individual account.  This means that Provident Trust Group executes all investment documents and all documents related to the sale of the asset. This titling also ensures that the IRS recognizes that you are not personally benefiting from the assets held in your account before retirement. This allows you to recognize any potential tax benefits for which you might be eligible.
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.
