Break away from the investment crowd.
Crowdfunding is more than just small-time dreamers looking for start-up money. You can invest in crowdfunding projects through a self-directed IRA.
Investment crowdfunding, usually referred to as equity crowdfunding, is a means by which investors (the crowd) can invest in private companies in exchange for shares. Unlike reward and donation-based crowdfunding, where supporters would normally only receive t-shirts or the occasional product prototype for their financial contributions, equity-based crowdfunding offers a return on investment if a company is successful. GoldStar will hold both equity and debt-structured crowdfunding investments in a self-directed IRA.
Equity crowdfunding regulations require that all funds raised go into a third-party escrow account and remain there until the funding goal is met, or be promptly returned to investors if the goal is not met. Because funding portals can’t touch the funds, a third-party is needed that can fulfill the escrow requirements of both state and national crowdfunding regulations. GoldStar Trust has developed a complete, compliant solution for escrow and payment issues.
GoldStar does not offer investment advice and does not buy or sell investment products. GoldStar will make no investigation as to the viability or safety of the investment(s) you select. GoldStar is compensated through administrative fees and cash management fees. GoldStar does not receive compensation from crowdfunding web portals, platforms or broker-dealers.
