ROSELAND, NJ, October 17, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/Next Generation Services, located in Roseland, N.J., is expanding once again with two new hires. Jack Malpass is Next Generation’s newest inside sales representative and Scott Ritchie is the firm’s new business development representative.

“Since growing a cohesive operations and transactions department, we have refocused our efforts on the expansion of our sales and marketing teams,” said Jaime Raskulinecz, founder and CEO of Next Generation. “Bringing on these two seasoned sales professionals will help us drive our passion for providing top-notch information and education to individual investors and financial professionals in even greater numbers and a farther reach.”

Malpass, of Hopatcong, has worked in inside sales for a variety of companies in the NY/NJ metro area; as such, he has managed IT help desks, and has extensive experience with lead generation and nurturing, handling customer inquiries, and representing companies at trade shows. At Next Generation, he is working with potential clients to understand their investing objectives, educate them on how self-direction may help them meet those goals, and ensure a smooth client acquisition process. He will be working closely with Next Generation’s marketing team.

As business development representative, Ritchie, of Bernardsville, will put his experience as a business development director for a software company, as well as his background in real estate investment and vendor relations to work at Next Generation.

He will be collaborating with the marketing, account management and operations teams.

Brittany Pickell of Next Generation is Featured Guest on Target Market Insights Podcast

[et_pb_image admin_label=”Image Marketing Director Brittany Pickell” _builder_version=”3.23.3″ src=”https://www.nextgenerationtrust.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/Brittany-Pickell.png” box_shadow_horizontal_tablet=”0px” box_shadow_vertical_tablet=”0px” box_shadow_blur_tablet=”40px” box_shadow_spread_tablet=”0px” z_index_tablet=”500″ /]

Marketing Director for Self-Directed Retirement Plan Specialist Shares Insights into Real Estate Investing through this Strategy

ROSELAND, NJ, May 31, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ — Brittany Pickell, Director of Marketing and Sales for Next Generation, which specializes in self-directed retirement plans, was a featured guest in a recent episode of Casmon Capital Group’s real estate podcast, Target Market Insights. Pickell shared information for real estate investors about self-directed retirement plans and ways investors anywhere in the U.S. can include real estate investments in these plans.

Even experianced investors are not always aware of the (self-directed) concept or the many nontraditional investments these plans allow including all types of real estate.

“Since Casmon Capital Group specializes in optimizing apartment community investments, the Target Market Insights podcast typically provides insight on specific geographical and emerging markets for real estate investors; however, we wanted to bring a different perspective to listeners with a topic that applies to all markets,” said Pickell. Her episode, titled “What You Need to Know About Self-Directed Retirement Accounts” is available here.

“Although self-directed IRAs have been around for decades, we find that even experienced investors are not always aware of the concept or the many nontraditional investments these plans allow—including all types of real estate, which is the largest asset class typically held in these plans,” she added.

Real estate investments that can be included in a self-directed IRA include mixed-use properties, residential or commercial properties, rehabs, farm land, raw land, and industrial or warehouse properties.

What was once an exclusive investment vehicle for the very wealthy, self-directed retirement plans are now attainable by a wider pool of savvy investors who know and understand certain alternative assets, are comfortable making their own investment decisions and want to diversify their retirement portfolios.

“Including nontraditional investments in their retirement plans enable investors to hedge against stock market volatility in more creative ways,” noted Pickell.

In the podcast, Pickell explained the best practices when using a retirement account to buy and sell investment real estate, talked about the similarities and differences between self-directed IRAs and typical plans from brokerages and banks, and discussed how Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) and Coverdell Education Savings Accounts (ESAs) can also be self-directed. Next Generation Trust Company provides custodial services for its clients’ self-directed accounts and its sister firm, Next Generation Services, provides full account administration and transaction support.

Pickell speaks at many conferences and meetings and conducts educational webinars with other firms. Next Generation’s goal during these events is to educate investors and financial professionals on self-direction as a retirement strategy and the many options available through self-direction. Last spring, Pickell appeared twice on the financial services video platform, Asset TV, to talk about women and investing and to provide an overview of self-directed retirement plans.
