Equity Trust Company, a leading custodian of self-directed IRAs, has acquired Midland Trust, a highly respected self-directed IRA company based in Fort Myers, Fla. This strategic move further strengthens Equity Trust's position as a premier provider of self-directed IRA and alternative asset custody solutions.

With this acquisition, Equity Trust will leverage the combined expertise and resources of both organizations to offer clients enhanced services and support. The transaction brings together two trusted brands known for their commitment to innovation, professionalism, and excellent customer service.

"We are thrilled to welcome Midland Trust's clients and employees to the Equity family," said George Sullivan, CEO of Equity Trust. "This acquisition aligns perfectly with our strategy to provide the highest-quality products and services to our customers while enabling them to maximize their retirement savings. We are excited to join forces with the talented, customer-focused employees of Midland to deliver a world-class experience."

Midland Trust has built a strong reputation for its comprehensive self-directed IRA custodial services, serving a diverse client base across the United States. Its experienced team and commitment to exceptional service align seamlessly with Equity Trust's core values, making this acquisition a natural fit.

Equity Trust is a trusted partner for individuals seeking to self-direct their retirement investments, offering access to a wide range of investment options such as real estate, private equity, and precious metals. This acquisition will further expand Equity Trust's capabilities, enabling clients to have even more flexibility and control over their retirement savings.

The acquisition also expands Equity Trust's physical presence. Midland Trust's offices in Chicago and Fort Myers, Fla., will add to Equity Trust's existing offices, and its Sioux Falls, S.D., office will add to the company's presence there.
