Welcome Fortuna Bank IRA Investors


Fortuna Bank has chosen STRATA Trust Company as its custodian of choice to offer tax-deferred Self-Directed IRAs (SDIRAs) as a simple way to purchase shares of their private stock.

Fortuna Bank investors that choose to invest through a STRATA Self-Directed IRA will receive a competitive annual fee schedule: IRA Fee Schedule – Special Flex.  In addition, Fortuna Bank investors have a STRATA-dedicated team to assist with account opening, investment funding, and any post-investing questions through their self-directed IRA. Typical STRATA investment timelines are 5 – 8 business days to Open, Fund, and Direct your investment. These estimates are subject to change based on the timeline of the transferring IRA service provider and the selected funding method, as noted in Step 2.

How It Works:


Step 1: Open 

Establish a new self-directed IRA account with STRATA via the online account setup.


Step 2: Fund

Investors will be asked in the IRA Transfer section of the online account setup application, “Would you like to complete the STRATA Transfer Request form today?”

  • If you are ready to move funds now, select “Yes.” If  you would like to move funds later, select “No.”
  • If transferring funds from another IRA service provider, STRATA is dependent on their processing timelines which can take up to 14 business days or up to 30 days for rollovers.

Step 3: Direct 

Once STRATA receives your online application we will reach out with a pre-populated Investment Direction form for you to review and sign electronically.

  • STRATA will fund your Fortuna Bank investment once your Investment Direction form is returned to STRATA and as soon as your transferred funds settle in your STRATA IRA
