“As doctors we don't have time to be constantly checking in on our investments. We know Samir and trust him to increase our wealth. We have full confidence that Trophy Point will safeguard and grow our capital for us.”Jatan Patel

“I have invested with Samir on multiple projects since 2016. I don't like having to constantly worry about my investments; one of the things that keeps me coming back is the ability to 'set it and forget it' with full confidence that it will be safe and grow.”Zach Watson

“Because my career in tech requires most of my professional focus, I knew I needed a "hands-off" yet effective approach for my investing. I have found that with Trophy Point. They make it so easy. I don't have to constantly be worrying, they take care of it all for me. Due to my confidence in them, multiple members of my family have also invested; the peace of mind they offer makes it a no-brainer.”Tina Chong

Compound your wealth over time by earning a higher interest rate with a Trophy Point SD-IRA.

In the line graph below, you can compare the earnings of a $100,000 investment as a Trophy Point Self-Directed IRA earning 10% interest, re-invested quarterly, over a period of 25 years against that same investment receiving quarterly payments of $8,000 per year.

As an investment example, Alex is a 35 year old professional who has invested $100,000 in an IRA account from her employer. She chooses to transfer the entire amount into an IRA account with Trophy Point. She earns 10% quarterly interest on her principal, which is re-invested every quarter. After 25 years, Alex is ready to retire at 60 years old, and her account has grown to $1,181,372. She then decides to live off of the 10% interest income payments of $118,137 annually, while she enjoys her retirement. If instead she had decided to invest her $100,000 without the SD-IRA, and she received the quarterly interest payments of $8,000 per year, after 25 years she would only have $300,000. Over time, the SD-IRA is a clear way to compound wealth.

In the line graph below, you can compare the earnings of a $100,000 investment, receiving quarterly payments of $8,000 per year for 25 years, against a Trophy Point Self-Directed IRA earning 10% interest over a period of 25 years. On one graph line, you can see that the $100,000 investment with quarterly interest payments received of $8,000 per year, after 25 years, amounts to $300,000. On the second graph line, you can see the $100,000 investment of a SD-IRA that earns 10% which is re-invested quarterly. After 25 years, that investment grows to $1,181,372, showing how you can compound your wealth over time.
