SAN FRANCISCO, April 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- IRA Services Trust Company, the leading provider of Cloud-based Retirement Account Solutions, and FundAmerica Technologies, a leading provider of tech-based transaction and compliance solutions to financial services providers and crowdfunding platforms, today announced their plan to integrate IRA Services' ISCP™ Retirement Account platform with FundAmerica's transaction engine. This new integration will allow FundAmerica's customers to better accommodate retail clientele seeking to invest in equity offerings using their 401(k) and IRA accounts.
With Title III crowdfunding set to go live next month and new Reg A+ offerings gaining traction, many investors are excited about new opportunities in alternative investing. However, because their investable capital often rests in retirement accounts, many retail investors seek to participate through 401(k)s and IRAs. Without the ISCP™ technology to accommodate tax deferred crowd-investing, both intermediaries as well as issuers may be seriously curtailed in their ability to penetrate this rising generation of enthusiastic crowd-investors.
IRA Services' ISCP™ is the only cloud-based micro retirement investment solution that enables platform intermediaries to provide a seamless, real-time, easy to use retail investment experience for their IRA funds.
FundAmerica provides brokers, portals, platforms and serial issuers with easy-to-implement tools and technology for some of the most complicated back-office pieces of the fundraising process.
IRA Services' ISCP™ helps platform intermediaries scale by enabling them to market to more than 43 million investors and over $14 trillion dollars held in 401(k) and IRA accounts.
Management of both companies will be discussing details of the new seamless API integration at this week's FundIt conference, the first forum dedicated to crowdfunding compliance, marketing and technology, being held on April 26-27, 2016 at the Bellagio in Las Vegas. Details on the conference can be found by visiting http://www.fundit.us/.
