Ranked as one of the leading trust companies in South Dakota in the respected Chambers & Partners High Net Worth Guide, every year since 2016, our experienced, qualified team in Sioux Falls provides a wide range of fiduciary and corporate services to professional advisors and their high net worth clients, both international and U.S. based.
South Dakota is frequently ranked the number one trust jurisdiction in the United States. It is recognised for its modern trust laws, which include powerful privacy and asset protection provisions and the ability to establish dynastic trusts for multi-generational planning, as well as directed trusts where the trustee takes ‘directions’ from an advisor or committee in relation to trust fund investments and/or distributions.
Our services include the administration of both directed and delegated trusts, as well as discretionary trusts. The team also acts as the hub for our US corporate services, covering all US states. Three-quarters of the office’s staff have legal and/or accounting backgrounds, ensuring that complex client needs and structures are always in good hands.
