See what others have to say…

Mat Sorensen and his presentation was outstanding.


It was very helpful to learn about asset protection rules for self-directed IRA’s, 401(k)’s and retirement.


The Summit was very well organized with great speakers who spoke on topical issues.


I liked Mat’s information on non-recourse loan the most. It was very helpful!


I plan to attend all of them because I really learned a lot. Also, I trust your team the most because they have already helped the clients I have to refer to Directed IRA


Mat and Mark make it easy to understand and absorb difficult-to-understand material.
