Kingdom Trust, a South Dakota public trust company, serves as an independent qualified custodian specializing in customized and innovative custody solutions for institutional clients like alternative asset investment funds, advisors and broker-dealer platforms.
We offer custody solutions to each of the following:
- Family offices
- Investment advisors
- Investment sponsors
- Funds of funds
You or your service provider can operate with greater efficiency and transparency, as Kingdom Trust provides simple and cost-effective solutions for Dodd-Frank and other regulatory and compliance issues.
We build strong relationships with our clients, no matter their needs and no matter where their offices are located.
Using an independent qualified custodian like Kingdom Trust for institutional custody services
- saves time and cost associated with the use of a PCAOB-registered firm and the preparation of the internal control report
- adds a degree of separation between the investment advisor and client assets desired by regulators as an added layer of investment protection
- increases transparency and accountability through the independence of a custodian.
We integrate with you or your service provider to ensure seamless and transparent custody solutions that adhere to the Custody Rule. Kingdom Trust’s experienced and well-trained staff will respond to auditors’ requests to verify holdings and provide an increased level of comfort to your investors.
Along with our service, Kingdom Trust’s reputation as a custodian is dependent upon how we manage the recordkeeping and safekeeping of client assets and information. All original documents evidencing ownership are housed in our secure storage facility, which features a dual controlled environment and keypad entry with no one person having access to enter the room or safes. Digital copies of each document are stored on a second server, off-site, for disaster recovery purposes. Also, the South Dakota Division of Banking audits Kingdom Trust on a routine and regular basis. This ensures the safety and soundness of our firm for you and your clients’ benefit.
While committed to maintaining top-notch service, Kingdom Trust is forward thinking and ready to adapt to the changing regulatory landscape of the financial services industry.
