Updates from Team NextGen…

  • Assistant Transaction Manager Kyle Schickram earns CISP Designation

Next Generation Services is proud to announce that effective June 1, 2018, Kyle Schickram has earned the designation of Certified IRA Services Professional (CISP) from the American Banking Association (ABA). Kyle is a transaction specialist who is responsible for reviewing all transaction-related documents and handling client inquiries regarding self-directed investments.

Kyle joined Next Generation in 2014 and has worked hard to help our clients get their transaction documentation fully vetted, and is always helpful when clients call in with questions about self-directed investing in general, or about a specific type of alternative asset. Although he had already met the criterion set by the ABA of a minimum of four years of dedicated IRA operational or technical expertise, and could qualify for CISP based on that alone, he opted to take the association’s 12-week course; complete all the weekly quizzes, discussion questions and reading; and sit for the final exam.

As Kyle will tell you, there is a lot that goes into making sure all paperwork is in order that that every transaction is done correctly, according to IRS investing guidelines and other criteria. This credential is a testament to Kyle’s hard work and the expertise he has gained as a valuable part of the transaction process for our clients; we are all very proud of this accomplishment.

As a further testament to his expertise, Kyle is also a certified self-directed IRA professional (SDIP), a designation he earned from the Retirement Industry Trade Association (RITA) in early 2016. Please join all of us at Next Generation in congratulating Kyle Schickram, SDIP, CISP for a job well done!

SDIRA Tip of the Month

Self Directed IRAs and Real Estate

  • All contracts, deeds, and legal documents must be in the name of the IRA and not the IRA owner’s name. When applicable, documents may be in the name of an IRA/LLC.
  • The IRA owners and other disqualified persons may not receive a commission or other personal financial compensation for the IRA’s purchase, management, or sale of real estate.
  • Any loan in connection with the IRA’s purchase must be nonrecourse and may result in UDFI tax.
  • The IRA owner and certain family members (disqualified persons) may not reside or personally benefit from the real estate. The real estate must be held for investment.
  • The IRA owner and disqualified persons may oversee and direct repairs or management of the property through their IRA (or IRA/LLC as applicable) but the IRA owner and disqualified persons are prohibited from physically working on the property.
