South Dakota Trust Company LLC’s (SDTC) founders, Al W. King III and Pierce H. McDowell III have worked with many international families over the years. 

In addition to founding SDTC, they previously also founded Citicorp Trust South Dakota in 1995 for Citibank.  As a result of working for Citibank, they worked for many of the bank’s international families providing domestic trust situs when needed.

Since the formation of SDTC, we have helped countless international families utilize South Dakota law to effectively implement their estate and trust planning from abroad. In listening to our clients and their advisors over the past several decades, we have created a platform for our services based upon what our wealthy domestic and international clients “asked for” versus what “we thought they wanted”, as is often not the case with corporate America. We would be honored to now provide the same to you and your family. If you have any questions or would like any additional information, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to working with you!
