Equity Trust is committed to protecting our clients. We work to keep your information safe and secure.
We are regulated as a South Dakota trust company and comply with all statutes and regulations mandated by the South Dakota Division of Banking.
Our financial statements are audited annually by an independent certified public accountant, in accordance with American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) professional standards.
All IRAs must be held by a custodial entity such as a bank, credit union, trust company, or an entity that is licensed and regulated by the IRS as a “non-bank custodian.”
The IRS website publishes a list of nonbank custodians. However, this IRS resource is not a complete list of every custodian. The IRS list does not include entities that qualify as an IRA custodian under state law, which includes Equity Trust.
The South Dakota Division of Banking regulates Equity Trust, and we are registered as a trust company that can custody retirement assets.S.D. Division of Banking LIst of Trust Companies
