[Kingdom Trust is] known for providing innovative and flexible custody solutions, so it made sense to become heavily involved in digital currency and offer a solution at the institutional level.
Sioux Falls, SD (PRWEB) August 29, 2017
As the premier custodian allowing account holders to hold digital currency assets directly in an IRA, Kingdom Trust is excited and honored to be a part of the CoinAlts Fund Symposium. The event will take place September 14, 2017, at the St. Regis Hotel in San Francisco, CA. The firm’s Business Development Officer, Tara Bogard, will join a panel to discuss operational challenges and best practices for digital asset managers.
Designed for fund managers and investors, the CoinAlts Fund Symposium will provide many educational opportunities for those interested in this rapidly-growing investment space. Digital currency, or cryptocurrency, is a relatively new asset class, so many of the topics discussed at the one-day symposium will address the growth and evolution of the asset. Among the various digital currency-related topics covered will be discussions on audit and tax issues, legal and operational issues and the institutional investment process.
The emergence of Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple and other digital currency assets remains one of the hottest topics in the investing world, requiring service providers to stay up on operational and procedural nuances related to digital currency. “With the digital currency space growing at such a rapid pace, we see a very real need to come together and provide an in-depth educational and networking experience for those actively seeking knowledge and professional growth,” said Bogard.
The Kingdom Trust platform is the first (and currently the only) to allow digital currency to be held directly in tax-advantaged Self-Directed IRAs and other retirement plans. In fact, the firm now allows accounts holding Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple and Litecoin, among other digital currency investments.
“At Kingdom, we’re known for providing innovative and flexible custody solutions, so it made sense to become heavily involved in digital currency and offer a solution at the institutional level,” said Bogard. “We’re proud of what we’ve built and are excited for the future of digital currency, and also our firm.”
