The Power of U.S. Trusts for International Families

The United States continues to be the jurisdiction of choice for international families because of powerful modern trust law planning tools available in top-tier jurisdictions such as South Dakota, including Domestic Asset Protection Trusts and Foreign Grantor Trusts as well as progressive privacy trust laws and tax planning opportunities. These are just a few of the unique planning solutions available under South Dakota law that are important for families across the globe to consider when selecting the best U.S. trust situs.

If you are attending the forum, be sure to stop by our booth to talk with our team about these powerful U.S. trust strategies that Bridgeford Trust Company offers for domestic and international families. You’ll also learn more about Bridgeford International – the global planning and business development engine for the Bridgeford family of companies, promoting the power of U.S. modern trust law and sophisticated risk planning solutions around the world. We’d love to connect and talk about how we may be able to collaborate to best serve the international community.
