The Governor’s Task Force on Trust Administration Review and Reform was founded with the goal of creating in South Dakota the best environment in the United States for the administration of trusts and the organization of public and private trust companies. The Task Force is comprised of representatives from the South Dakota banking and trust company community, the South Dakota Legislature and State Banking Commission and Division of Banking officials, and the South Dakota legal community. Based on reviews by independent experts, legislation recommended by the Task Force has established South Dakota as the leading trust jurisdiction in the United States.
