Experience

Established in 1989, GoldStar Trust was a forerunner in offering custodial services for self-directed IRAs, and we have remained at the forefront of the industry ever since. We prove our expertise every day, with every single client.

Integrity

GoldStar Trust Company’s reputation dates back to 1908 when Happy State Bank was founded in Happy, Texas—a hometown bank with hometown values. Like hard work. Keeping your promises. Taking care of your customers, who were also your neighbors. Happy State Bank has since grown into a $3 billion regional power. And these timeless values continue to guide GoldStar, a trust division of HSB. GoldStar has earned a stellar reputation within the industry, including an A+ BBB Rating and a 5-Star Rating from Bauer Financial.

Affordability

GoldStar is able to offer the most competitive fees for our services because we have spent years honing and streamlining our processes to be efficient and cost-effective. Our technology solutions reduce processing times, automate periodic and recurring payments, and prevent any add-on hidden fees. This results in predictable, affordable charges.

INVESTMENT OPTIONS WE CUSTODY

Self-directed IRAs can be vehicles for alternative investments in a wide range of accounts and assets that you choose. Owning alternative assets in an IRA is easy to do if the custodian you choose specializes in holding the asset you’re interested in. Because different self-directed IRA custodians will accept different types of investments, the key is to find the right company to help you with the process. GoldStar Trust specializes in these and other asset options. If you have an investment option in mind, contact us to learn more. If you don’t see the investment option you’re interested in, contact us to see how we can help you.
