Bridgeford Trust Company is an independent South Dakota chartered trust company providing fiduciary services to families across the country and around the world. Leveraging over 125 years of combined fiduciary experience, Bridgeford’s work and brand recognition has expanded tremendously because of its continued focus on providing educational content across multiple media platforms, including a podcast series, accentuating the sophistication of powerful modern trust law and insurance solutions – particularly around asset protection, privacy, and tax planning – in addition to Bridgeford’s ability to deliver far more direction and control to families than ever before through the use of the directed trusts. Bridgeford’s commitment to the international space led to a very successful launch of its Miami office and creation of Bridgeford International, a sister company and registered insurance agency focused on promoting creative and innovative trust planning solutions and insurance strategies to advisors and their families across the globe.
International Trust and Insurance Solutions
Large international families continue to seek U.S. modern trust law and sophisticated insurance solutions, particularly Private Placement Life Insurance. Bridgeford, recognizing this need in the international space, launched an aggressive and unique initiative (for a U.S./domestic trust company) to build a solid internal infrastructure to serve international families, with the launch of Bridgeford International, a fully licensed insurance agency with headquarters in Miami, Florida, focused on promoting and providing powerful modern U.S. trust and insurance planning solutions to families across the globe. Bridgeford International, a sister company of Bridgeford Trust Company, is led by an international attorney who has worked in the international trust and insurance industry for over 25 years, advising families on sophisticated structures to achieve asset protection, privacy, and prudent tax planning.
