Founded in 2003 by H. Quincy Long, we opened our first office in Houston, Texas as Entrust Retirement Services. Since then, we evolved into Quest IRA in 2011 and Quest Trust Company in 2018. Through it all, our foundation of providing quality education and world class customer service was always there helping us grow into one of the leading Self-Directed IRA custodians in the nation.

 We want you to invest in what you know best. From real estate, notes, oil and gas, private placements, and more, you are in the driver’s seat. You find the investment, and we provide expert account administration and transaction support services, with our friendly and knowledgeable staff ready to take your call. To help you make the best investment decisions, we provide informative online webinars and lively in-person events where you can educate yourself on your investment options and network with quality like-minded investors.
