Hi my name is Alison Bartholomew. I am born and raised in Orem, Utah and am a graduate from Utah Valley University.

I’m an avid runner! My favorite distance is the marathon and I run competitively on the Runners Corner racing team. I love to be in the outdoors whether it’s a trail run, hiking or camping with the family. I married my high school sweetheart and we live in Utah county with our four beautiful children.

I love finance and I love helping people accomplish their financial dreams. I’m excited to be part of the Prosper Team and to get to know our amazing clients better!

My name is Emma Dickey and I am the Director of Client Relations and Marketing for My Prosper Team.

I am originally from Heber Arizona and have been living in Utah for the past three years while completing my bachelor’s degree at Brigham Young University.

I come from a big family with 4 sisters and 2 brothers and 17 nieces and nephews whom I all love very much. I also have an amazing husband and we hope to start our own family sometime in the near future.

I love to do anything active and outdoors such as playing volleyball, tennis, pickleball, hiking, biking, and anything else to get out and move. I even played collegiate volleyball for a few years. I love listening to music and a take any chance I can to catch a good concert.

I love being a part of My Prosper Team— a team that tries to do anything and everything to help each client feel appreciated and cared for. My goal is to make sure that the best relationships are fostered between My Prosper Team and each client to help them realize that there is no better team to be a part of!

My name is Carter Lane, director of marketing at My Prosper Team. I’ve been in the financial space for over 15 years and enjoy understanding how markets change and adapt.

The best part of my job is helping the advisors excel with the right tools and business platforms. I work to ensure that the advisors offer our clients up to date information, services and communications regarding their accounts and investments.

In my free time I’ve created a Non-profit organization called H.E.L.P which focuses on helping underprivileged teenagers that are homeless and in and out of foster care.I live in South Jordan, UT with my wife and 4 children. I love living in Utah, and I love the outdoors. My mantra is enjoy the journey. 

I am KatieLynn Smith, Director of Life Insurance with My Prosper Team.

I have been in the financial industry for just over 7 years, I feel very blessed to have found my passion early on in life. I specialize in retirement planning, asset protection, and insurance strategies. Above all, I’m committed to creating life-long, trusted relationships with the people I serve.

While watching my mother encounter many obstacles upon retiring, I discovered a great need for financial education. Seeing her sort through one retirement question after another, I began delving into finance to find answers of my own, and ultimately shifted my career into the financial industry. As a financial professional, my mission is to be an advocate for my clients. I offer clarity and comfort around retirement, equipping clients with education and tools for navigating a solid financial course. I’m passionate about helping people follow their dreams through financial education and personalized guidance.

I’ve also been fulfilling personal dreams of my own, including my recent marriage to my husband, Mike, in Costa Rica, surrounded by 50 of my closest family and friends. When I’m not serving clients, you may find me traveling the world or enjoying the great outdoors. I love hiking, biking, boating, rafting, and playing with my two cute dogs.

I'm Ryan Robertson, owner and senior advisor with Prosper Wealth Solutions. I love finance, the markets and am a bit of what you would call a geek. This is my passion!

I have both a bachelors and master of finance from the university of Utah and I've spent almost 20 years dedicating my life to helping families, individuals and businesses make the right financial decisions for their future. Stock, bond, realestate, options, self-directed iras, solo 201K... you name it. I use it and understand it.

With My Prosper Team I've built a company that focuses on allowing my friends and clients every opportunity to invest where, how and the way they want. My team and I can tailor a strategy that works with your goals to accomplish what is most important to you.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a self-directed IRA and why does it need a special custodian?
A self-directed IRA is a unique type of retirement account that gives investors more control over their investment choices. Unlike traditional IRAs, which are typically limited to stocks, bonds, and mutual funds, self-directed IRAs allow investors to invest in a wider range of assets and alternative investments, including real estate, private businesses, and precious metals.

However, this added flexibility comes with additional responsibilities. In order to maintain the tax-deferred status of their self-directed IRA, investors must follow all of the rules and regulations set forth by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). One of these regulations is the requirement for a special custodian – a self directed IRA custodian - to hold and manage the assets in a self-directed IRA.
Why is a special custodian needed for a self-directed IRA?
The IRS requires a special custodian for self-directed IRAs to ensure that the assets in the account are managed in accordance with all of the rules and regulations governing IRAs. This includes ensuring that the assets are not used for any prohibited transactions, such as using the assets for personal benefit or using them to invest in a disqualified person, such as a family member or business partner.

A special custodian is also responsible for keeping accurate records of all transactions made within the self-directed IRA, as well as preparing and filing all necessary tax forms and reporting. This helps to ensure that the tax-deferred status of the IRA is not compromised and that investors are able to enjoy the full benefits of their investment.

With Prosper Self-directed, you can get both a financial advisor and custodian to help provide the investment advice you're looking for. Whether you're looking to use your IRA for real estate investments, precious metals, cryptocurrency, or other alternative investments, our team has the expertise to help you reach your goals.
What should I look for in a special custodian for a self-directed IRA?
When choosing a special custodian for your self-directed IRA account, it is important to look for a company that has a solid reputation and experience in handling self-directed IRAs. You should also look for a custodian that offers a wide range of investment options, so that you can diversify your portfolio and potentially reduce your risk.

It is also important to consider the fees and charges associated with the custodian. Some custodians charge high fees for their services, which can eat into your investment returns over time. It is important to choose a custodian that offers competitive pricing and a transparent fee structure.

Let's Get Started

A self-directed IRA can be a powerful tool for investors who want more control over their retirement funds. However, it is important to choose self directed ira custodians that can help you navigate the rules and regulations governing self-directed IRAs and ensure that your investments and alternative assets are managed in accordance with all of the IRS requirements. By doing so, you can potentially maximize your investment returns and enjoy a comfortable retirement.
