Bellevue, Washington (PressExposure) April 14, 2009 -- Guidant Financial Group and InvestorLoft.com announced today that they will be joining efforts to create more awareness around real estate IRA investing through both companies' websites. Combining Guidant's award-winning expertise in alternative investment facilitation with InvestorLoft's reach within the real estate investment community, both companies are excited at the expanded offerings.
"Many would-be investors contact us looking for investment opportunities," says David Nilssen, co-founder of Guidant, a leading provider of self-directed IRA services and business-financing solutions. "By combining InvestorLoft's resources with our self-directed IRA services, our companies create an opportunity for investors to identify, evaluate and purchase real estate investments."
Guidant's website includes audio and video about self-directed investing, a glossary of investment-related terms and a plethora of informative articles," says Nilssen. "The inclusion of InvestorLoft content will help fill a gap in our curriculum."
InvestorLoft is the first technology-driven real estate investment marketplace to effectively solve the challenges of identifying, analyzing and funding investment opportunities. Having experienced a similar gap in educational content and trusted resources for referral, InvestorLoft is enthusiastic about the resources that the relationship with Guidant offers their site members as well.
"With an estimated 70-90 percent of IRA holders unaware of their ability to purchase real estate through their IRA, there is a strong need to educate our members by providing solid educational tools, particularly information about innovative investing solutions as offered by Guidant," says Walter Charnoff, co-founder and CEO of InvestorLoft. "We're excited about the relationship with Guidant and look forward to leveraging their expertise on the utilization of retirement funds for purchasing real estate and other alternative investments."
By teaming up, Guidant and InvestorLoft plan to help investors take a more active role in their future investments and get one step closer to achieving their investment goals.
