Expedition Trust serves as trustee, or co-trustee, of revocable, irrevocable, and charitable trusts, as well as managed self-directed Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs). Expedition Trust does not administer ERISA accounts.
Expedition Trust offers South Dakota situs trusts, including directed trusts, dynasty trusts, asset protection trusts, captive insurance trusts, and the full panoply of tax and flexibility advantages that come from trusts administered and sitused in South Dakota with a South Dakota trust company.
Expedition Trust serves as custodian, including custodian for guardianship accounts, for both personal agency and trust accounts as well as institutional custody accounts.
As custodian for personal agency and trust accounts, Expedition Trust allows clients to have all their accounts (trust and agency, including IRAs) held by a single fiduciary, while permitting them to employ different third-party investment managers to manage their accounts on a discretionary basis.
As an institutional custodian, Expedition Trust will provide a centralized holding and reporting location for foundations, endowments, and other institutions that may have engaged several investment managers to manage their assets.
