Custody, Escrow and Like-Kind Exchanges

Custody, Escrow and Like-Kind Exchanges

Many investors who manage their own portfolios or retain the services of a professional investment advisor prefer to assign custody and safekeeping of assets to a trust company. Through these accounts, individuals can hold their assets securely in one place. Cadence Trust collects dividends and interest payments and provides quarterly statements.
