Kingdom Trust and DCDB Group Announce Relationship

BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA, July 24, 2014 / – Kingdom Trust, a premier provider of alternative asset custody, and the DCDB Group, a top financial services consultancy with a global clientele, have formed a strategic relationship to assist international investment firms looking to expand into and inside the United States.

The relationship delivers Kingdom Trust’s independent, cost-effective custody services to DCDB clients investing in U.S.-based alternative assets. DCDB works with a wide range of clients based in Europe, the U.S., and Latin America.

“We are extremely excited to work with Kingdom Trust for global custodial services,” says Kyran Culhane, Managing Partner and CIO at DCDB Group. “Our clients feel comfortable and satisfied with both the safekeeping and operational aspects of their asset custody service. Forming this strategic relationship gives us the opportunity to work with a specialized asset custodian in offering alternative, customized and competitively priced solutions.”

Mr. Culhane says the partnership will be particularly valuable to clients in Latin America and to clients who face regulatory hurdles when investing in the U.S.:

“While this relationship allows us to competitively service both our U.S. and European clients, one of our big focuses at present is the LatAm market, and we are enthusiastic to begin rolling out this offering to our clients in the region. We’re especially excited to work with Kingdom’s network of partner banks who can help facilitate the needs of our institutional clients in countries such as Argentina, for example, where there are specific regulatory needs for U.S. custody and securities transfers.”

With offices in Washington, DC, Dublin, and Buenos Aires, DCDB will help Kingdom Trust expand its global footprint to include foreign clients attracted to alternative investments in the U.S.

“The strategic alliance between Kingdom Trust and DCDB to provide a global custody solution for international firms is a natural progression for both our firms and will greatly benefit our clients,” says Scott Foster, Sr. Vice President of Institutional Custody for Kingdom Trust.

About Kingdom Trust
Kingdom Trust specializes in custody services to institutional clients who require or desire an unrelated, independent, qualified custodian to house their assets or the assets they hold on behalf of their clients. It recognizes that the institutional custody marketplace has dramatically changed with the Dodd-Frank Financial Reform and the Consumer Protection Act, and it will continue to evolve. The firm’s focus on the private equity, hedge fund, registered investment advisor, investment sponsor, and other institutional marketplaces has given it multiple opportunities to showcase its expertise and platform. Kingdom Trust also offers custody services to IRA and individual 401(k) account owners who wish to self-direct their investments. Kingdom Trust will hold traditional assets such as stocks, bonds, and mutual funds, but it specializes in holding the non-traditional ones: real estate, private equity, promissory notes, precious metals, and others.
