Midland IRA as a Strategic Service Provider

Midland has been in business since 2002. We provide custody solutions for investment sponsors and fund managers seeking additional sources of capital. There are 8.2 trillion dollars held in individual retirement accounts.
Retirement plans at Midland permit a broad range of alternative assets. These assets include real estate syndications, hedge funds, venture capital, and private equity offerings. Midland is not a fiduciary and does not give investment, legal, or tax advice. However, we provide exceptional and trusted service. Our level of service is paramount to fund managers and their investors.
Midland’s process is simple. Our staff has expertise in industry regulations that govern self-directed retirement plans. We perfected a seamless process, making diversifying investors’ portfolios into private funds easy.

The Process

Step 1: Asset Review Process

Identify an investment. Then, Midland reviews the asset before accepting custody. We do not evaluate, do due diligence, or perform other assessments on the asset or sponsor. Our asset review determines if Midland can meet the obligations and administrative responsibilities of the investment.

Step 2: Open and Fund the Midland Account

Open a Midland account by completing our online application. Investors must provide pen-signed documents, driver’s license copy, and account statement copy. Then, they fund the account via transfer, rollover, or contribution. They can do this by completing the appropriate form found here.

Step 3: Complete Investment Paperwork

Subscription Agreement presented in turn-key electronic package via Docusign with the purchase authorization form. Investors must review, then click to sign. Once Midland receives a receipt of retirement funds and the investor approved subscription documents, the investor is placed into their fund.
