Our Company


Bridgeford Trust Company is a boutique independent trust company providing cutting edge trust administrative services to families across the nation. Bridgeford Trust delivers far more control to clients and their advisors than ever before because of South Dakota’s modern trust laws, including directed trusts, self settled asset protection trusts, and decanting. In addition, the boutique nature of our firm allows for greater focus on concierge services, family governance, and preparing the next generation for the responsibilities of wealth.

Operating as a South Dakota fiduciary, the founders chose to be chartered in that state because selecting the proper trust jurisdiction is as vital as the decision of where to create a trust in the wealth planning process.

Routinely ranked as one of the nation’s best and most progressive trust jurisdictions, South Dakota fiduciary law gives clients access to some of the most advanced asset protection and dynasty trust capabilities in the United States as well as the ability to hold non-traditional assets in trusts. In addition, South Dakota’s confidentiality provisions and directed trust statutes are among the best in the country, allowing a client to confidentially work with financial advisors or investment managers of their choosing in the administration of trust assets.
