Our History

Midland was founded in 1994. Back then, we serviced investors as both an accounting firm and a 1031 exchange intermediary. In 2002, Midland opened our first self-directed retirement account and over the years began offering private fund custody in addition to incorporation services. Today, we are proud to offer a wide array of investor services to investors and investment professionals nationwide.
