                 ABOUT ASSET EXCHANGE STRATEGIES (AES)

Mission
“Serve As National Advisors for Self Directed Wealth Building”

Company Overview
Asset Exchange Strategies, located near Austin Texas is a consortium of financial
professionals who educate individuals about the benefits of Self Directed IRA's (also
referred to self-directed IRA) available to them in the tax code, and how to utilize
retirement plans to employ non-traditional assets such as real estate.


AES specific area of expertise is in the alternative investment options for retirement
plans such as Self Directed IRA, SEPs, Simple IRAs and 401(k) plans. These plans
provide tax-deferred growth, and allow the individual(s) to gain checkbook control over
assets and monies. Similar to a traditional financial advisor, AES works with investors to
assess their unique objectives, risk tolerance and other factors, educate them on options,
and institute a program that allows them to select from a much greater breadth of
investment choices. By using their knowledge of industry regulations AES is able to
provide lower fees and greatly expanded investment options.


AES provides complete support, advice and reporting for non-traditional investments.
They have the benefit of the expertise of tax attorneys, CPA’s, real estate agents, and
other financial experts to identify the appropriate expertise, methodology and tools to
enable investors to have greater control over Self Directed IRA investment transactions
and reduce risks and liability through the protection of an Self Directed IRA LLC and
Self Directed 401k. This use of tax dollars creates wealth for their clients, client’s family,
and for generations to come if desired.

                                                                                                 4
                  ASSET EXCHANGE STRATEGIES, LLC
                           Information Kit


AES Education Division provides pertinent products that educate and guide individuals,
real estate professionals, franchise investors, CPA's and other advisers and financial
experts who wish to understand the benefits of, and learn how to implement Self
Directed retirement investing. Over thirty-five education products on Self Directed IRA
investing at available at IRATraining.com.

Company History
In 2000 it became clear to AES founder, Daniel Cordoba that the equities markets were
in for turbulent times. Serendipitously one of his clients said to him 'I know you can
place real estate in an IRA, go find out how to do that." That became the first venture in
to self-directed retirement plans and the new future for Daniel Cordoba. In 2003 Jeremy
Farver joined the company; it quickly became a financial practice producing IRA LLC’s
with checkbook control primarily serving the real estate market. Because of Cordoba and
Farver's experience as financial advisors and as merger and acquisition specialists, the
notion of corporate structure melded with retirement products became a natural
extension of their knowledge and past experiences.


The venture then incorporated in 2004 and became and still is the leading self-directed
retirement firm in the real estate market. In 2006 the company introduced the self-
directed 401k to the market and it quickly became a capitalization tool of choice for real
estate investors. In 2007 and 2008 this same tool saved many real estate transactions
from failure through self-funding.


The company now offers funding solutions not only for real estate investment deals but
also franchises, and private business opportunities.

Franchise System Launched
In 2010 the company launched the Asset Exchange Franchise Network because of the
desire from the market to be able to do business with the "local guy". Again, past
affiliation with equity market organizations provided the company with a solid
foundation to build a financial advisory firm with non-traditional assets.

IRS Scrutiny

AES products are designed to meet the requirement of the tax-code.
Specifically, AES Self Directed plans are compliant to IRS tax code (IRC 4975,
publication 590 and code 408). To date AES is aware of 50 units (structured plans) that
have been audited; all have passed the structure test.


The IRS demands that these plans provide complete compliance to the code and
exclusive benefit to the retirement plan. However, many competitor products that are
touted as compliant products to the IRS code are merely modifications of standard
business entities – they have produced problems for clients when tragedy occurs such as
death or disability.
