Wealth Management is a leading news and information source for financial advisors. The annual awards program honors outstanding achievement by companies and organizations that support financial advisors. Advisors Private Wealth Trust was named the best new trusts platform among nominees from across the financial services industry.

"Providing trustee services helps RIAs meet the needs of investors looking to preserve their family's wealth for future generations. With Advisors Private Wealth Trust, we give RIAs a better way to capture these opportunities, provide a better experience for clients and reduce the risk that trust assets will move on to another provider when the generational transfer takes place," said Jim Dario, managing director of product management and services at TD Ameritrade Institutional. "Our program lets RIAs provide independent, impartial oversight from a committed, dedicated trustee for their clients' trusts."

TD Ameritrade created the Advisors Private Wealth Trust program with National Advisors Trust Company, FSB, an independent company founded by RIAs to help other RIAs offer trust services in all 50 states and which does not compete with RIAs as investment managers. The program features a Dedicated Trust Consultant to assist advisors and employs a directed trust model, which gives advisors fiduciary responsibility over a trust's investments.

The program also is fully integrated with TD Ameritrade's back office, which manages disbursements on behalf of RIAs and their clients. TD Ameritrade announced its strategic alliance with National Advisors Trust in January 2015. In its first year, Advisors Private Wealth Trust formed relationships with more than 300 RIA firms.

"As Baby Boomers age, demand for trust services will only increase, particularly among high net worth investors," said Jim Combs, president and chief executive of National Advisors Trust Company. "With Advisors Private Wealth Trust, RIAs can grow their businesses and gain a share of the wealth set to be transferred between generations. Advisors Private Wealth Trust helps advisors build stronger relationships with the next generation and puts them in a better position to keep the assets they already manage."

Building relationships with the next generation of clients is a key factor in the sustainability of RIA firms: 66 percent of heirs fire their parents' advisor after they inherit their parents' wealth, according to a recent industry study. 2 Offering trust services can also help attract new clients: an estimated 78 percent of investors with more than $1 million in net worth use trust services. 3
