SDS is a team of seasoned professionals dedicated to supporting the needs of our specialty clients.  When an individual is appointed by the court to perform the role of a fiduciary, a key function is how the entity will be banked moving forward.  SDS works with the client to design and develop the necessary banking arrangements.  These arrangements can be as simple as opening a new depository account or as detailed as arranging for other Treasury Management products such as Positive Pay, Controlled Disbursements, Foreign Exchange and Electronic Banking.  The SDS team, with over 75 years of combined experience has developed a streamlined, efficient on-boarding process to expedite the account set-up process.

Typically clients of the SDS team are: Trustees, CRO’s, Receivers, Liquidating Agents, Class Action disbursements. The SDS team insures that all fiduciary accounts are in compliance with any regulatory authorities such as the United States Trustee or any specific court order.  We have a client support team focused solely on these fiduciary accounts.  We have provided depository services for accounts for small entities as well

Valid8 was born from the pain required to analyze a $200 million fraud case where both internal and audited financial data were unreliable. Recognizing that many accounting processes beyond investigations such as audit, lending, bankruptcy/restructuring, and M&A due diligence need modern, more advanced data techniques, we created Valid8.  Designed for professionals that establish independent, objective opinions about financial operations. Whether you're a lender, auditor, financial investigator, bankruptcy/restructuring specialist, or M&A analyst, establishing an independent objective point of view requires assessing vast quantities of bank and ERP transactions from a variety of sources making fast comprehensive financial knowledge nearly impossible until now.  Valid8 solutions and innovations recognized as world class, recently named a Techstars '17 company.
