Our mission at Constellation Trust Company is to provide best in-class custody and administration services to registered investment advisors, financial institutions and their clients by providing efficient back-office servicing for mutual funds, variable annuities, and brokerage accounts.



Expertise, Experience & Technology

The trust company custody services we offer represent a constellation of financial expertise, experience and cutting-edge technology. Constellation Trust Company was formed in 2004, and received a Nebraska Trust charter in May of 2005. Constellation Trust Company has pulled best-in-class technology and industry expertise together to provide custody to registered investment advisors, financial institutions, and their clients. Constellation Trust Company’s affiliate, NorthStar Financial Services Group, LLC has more than $316 Billion under management and administration.

  • The true value of technology is making it easy to access and use. A technology firm could build the greatest web-based technology in the world, but it would be useless without the proper support.

    Our Focus On Technology

  • By partnering with Orion Advisor Services and Gemini Fund Services we offer state-of-the-art custodial technology designed with the financial industry in mind.
