MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CI Private Wealth, LLC (“CIPW”), a subsidiary of CI Financial Corp. (TSX: CIX), announces the launch of CIPW Trust, LLC (“CIPW Trust”), a South Dakota chartered trust company. CIPW advisors across the United States are now able to offer an array of corporate trustee services to their clients through CIPW Trust.
“The establishment of CIPW Trust is an important advancement for our firm and enhances our ability to provide a superior client experience,” said Andrew Holmberg, Executive Vice President and Head of Client Solutions at CIPW.
“With CIPW Trust, we developed a flexible advice-centered model in which tailored trust solutions are integrated into a client’s overall wealth plan. This holistic approach is key to providing our clients with comprehensive, high-quality wealth solutions.”
CIPW Trust’s preferred approach is to utilize a directed trust model in which CIPW Trust administers the trust while responsibility for investing the trust’s assets remains with the advisor team. Additionally, CIPW Trust can administer complex trust structures, including various types of investments, business interests, and interests in natural resources.
CIPW first applied for a South Dakota trust charter last year in recognition of the value of a corporate trustee solution in meeting the complex and distinct planning needs of its ultra-high-net-worth and high-net-worth client families.
CI Financial entered the U.S. wealth management sector in January 2020 and has built CIPW into a best-in-class integrated wealth management firm with offices across the United States. CIPW Trust is another example of how CIPW is leveraging its size and scale to develop additional industry-leading support and solutions for its clients.
