Jaime Raskulinecz is the CEO and founder of Next Generation Services in Roseland, New Jersey, which specializes in comprehensive account administration and transaction support services for self-directed retirement accounts. Its sister firm, Next Generation Trust Company, a South Dakota licensed, chartered trust company acts as custodian for all accounts. Next Generation’s services, coupled with its professional team’s expertise, enable savvy investors to truly diversify their retirement portfolios by making real estate and other alternative investments within tax-advantaged accounts.
Ms. Raskulinecz founded Next Generation in 2004 out of a desire to make real estate investments within her IRA, but was unable to find a professional to help her make those transactions. Next Generation began as part of a national network of third-party administrators of self-directed retirement plans, which Ms. Raskulinecz led from start-up to over $150 million in holdings in just five years. She decided to break away from the national network to start her own truly independent firm, and in 2011 the company emerged as Next Generation TS, LLC. To date the company holds over $600 million in assets.
Ms. Raskulinecz’s long term goal for NGTS has been to form a trust company which began operations July 1, 2017. The launch of its sister firm, Next Generation Trust Company, a South Dakota licensed, custodian means NGTS will no longer need to depend on an outside custodian.
A long-time real estate investor herself, Ms. Raskulinecz has worked full-time in the real estate industry since 1994 and is a certified property manager (CPM). She is a New Jersey licensed real estate broker and an active member of many national and statewide real estate organizations. In addition to Next Generation Services, Ms. Raskulinecz is CEO and a principal of Rainbow Property Management, a real estate management firm which has earned the Accredited Management Organization (AMO) credential from the Institute of Real Estate Management.
Ms. Raskulinecz is committed to making real estate investing and ownership accessible to a larger group people. She educates consumers and professionals about self-directed retirement plans and is a frequent speaker on the topic of nontraditional investments within retirement plans, to help investors and advisors better understand the options and requirements involved in self-directed accounts and transactions. A recognized expert in this field, Ms. Raskulinecz has been interviewed frequently by and has contributed articles to prominent real estate and investment publications.
In 2014, Ms. Raskulinecz joined the board of trustees of Green Hill, Inc., the nonprofit organization that owns and manages Green Hill Retirement Community in West Orange, NJ. She currently serves as vice chairperson of the board.
