Effective December 31, 2017, all accounts held with SFT officially became a part of the ITC family, continuing over 20 years of a successful partnership as sister companies.
“We were founded by fifth generation trust beneficiaries. So, we have a unique understanding of the value of relying on someone to focus exclusively on the effective and honest management of your trust,” said ITC Chief Executive Officer, Geoff Madsen.
“Our intention is to put the trust back in trusts. Therefore, it’s a natural continuation for SFT to become a part of that goal.”
As a result of the acquisition, all former-SFT accounts will now be administered by ITC and enjoy the same benefits that Santa Fe Trust provided: cash commitments, annual reviews, taxes, and prompt statements.
ITC was built on the foundation of responsibility to provide a space where families can be cared for as their trust intended and is eager to expand that foundation to new trust clients.
This new development marks the continuation of ITC’s mission: being an independent leader within the trust industry.
Madsen explains, “A great trust experience is central to a family’s financial goals and, simply put, we believe that there is a significant conflict of interest if the person investing your trust is the same person managing it.
We remove that conflict by exclusively managing the trust as it was written and working with a vast network of financial advisors to do what they do best– investments.”
