Former Transaction Supervisor Will Oversee Transaction Team at Administrator for Self-Directed Retirement Plans, Ensure the Firm’s Internal Processes are Aligned with Regulatory Updates

ROSELAND, N.J., May 1, 2014 – Jaime Raskulinecz, CEO of Next Generation Trust Services in Roseland, N.J., has announced the promotion of Timothy Wilms-Crowley to compliance manager for the firm. Next Generation specializes in full account administration and transaction support of self-directed retirement plans. Wilms-Crowley, a resident of West Orange, took on his new responsibilities effective May 1.

Wilms-Crowley will supervise the company’s transaction team, oversee internal compliance and administrative reviews, and ensure that Next Generation is always ahead of the curve in terms of regulatory and legislative changes within the self- directed retirement plan industry.

“Tim is well-versed in IRS regulations related to self-directed retirement plans and has already demonstrated expertise in the various compliance requirements concerning these plans,” said CEO Raskulinecz.  “As part of his new responsibilities, he will train for CISP (certified IRA services professional) certification, receive ongoing industry compliance training, and represent Next Generation Trust Services at regulatory conferences to stay abreast of the updates in self-directed retirement plan investing guidelines.”

Self-directed retirement plans allow for a broad array of nontraditional and traditional investments; the investor makes all his/her own investment decisions and the transactions are executed by a third-party administrator, such as Next Generation. Next Generation holds the assets, manages all the paperwork and reporting, and ensures that clients are investing within proper IRS guidelines. 

“There are always regulatory and legislative changes that arise, such as IRA rollover rules and IRS reporting forms,” noted Wilms-Crowley. “As compliance manager, I will be responsible for making sure that our staff is fully apprised of these important updates that affect our industry and our internal operations. In addition, I will be responsible for making sure all employees receive the proper training, education and credentials to perform their delegated duties.”   

All employees at Next Generation Trust Services are cross-trained to be able to answer client questions about self-directed retirement plans more efficiently and to direct them to the proper forms and reference materials to help them open their accounts. Wilms-Crowley said that educating them on compliance will help them serve clients even better.
