ZEDRA Enters the US Private Wealth Market by Opening a New Office in South Dakota

ZEDRA, the fast-growing global specialist in Active Wealth, as well as Corporate, Global Expansion, Funds, Pensions and Incentives services, today announces the opening of a new office in South Dakota, expanding the trust services provided to both international and domestic US clients. ZEDRA's new office will strengthen the firm's presence in the Americas and promote its proven active wealth expertise in the US private wealth space. The new office, led by its Managing Director, Jon Olson, will offer a full set of trust administration services tailored to international clients, spanning from high-net-worth-individuals, families, entrepreneurs as well as their relevant advisors.

The office opening follows a number of recent acquisitions in the Americas, including US and CuraƧao-based, Atlas Fund Services, now rebranded to ZEDRA Funds, which provides long-term, tailored, and reliable alternative investment fund services to US-based investment managers. ZEDRA also acquired US Global Expansion Specialist, Axelia Partners, in 2022, now rebranded to ZEDRA Global Expansion Services US, which facilitates the expansion in the US of predominantly European headquartered businesses and entrepreneurs.

Commenting on the office opening, Ivo Hemelraad, CEO at ZEDRA, said: "We have been working with private clients for decades, providing that all-important strategic oversight of a nuanced big-picture.

"The expansion of ZEDRA's trust services in the US supports our reputation as an international leader for trust services and is a natural next step in bolstering the firm's global offering for private clients, cementing the business opportunities of our Miami office across North and Latin America."

Jon Olson, Managing Director of ZEDRA in South Dakota, said: "We are excited about the endless possibilities that the new office represents, both for the firm and our clients.

"As ZEDRA has established itself as a strong and trusted partner in Europe and Asia in the trust services business, we look forward to repeating our successes in the Americas by offering all the advantages of South Dakota trust laws to our clients."
