The Fiduciary Advantage
As a client of the Trust and Investment Services department you will experience the value and power of the fiduciary relationship - a combination of regulatory and review requirements wrapped around our commitment to excellence in meeting your goals. We focus on three areas:
- Prudence - We operate under the Uniform Prudent Investor Act, which helps guide investment decisions and requires an analysis of risk versus return. Performance is measured on the performance of the entire portfolio, rather than the individual investments.
- Risk Management - We understand that risks come in many forms. We regularly assess any and all risk factors that affect your portfolio, and make adjustments as warranted.
- Loyalty - Our goal, as a financial services organization and a member of the community, is to establish broad and meaningful relationships with our clients. We understand this happens over time, by putting clients first and delivering on our commitments.
Preserve your wealth and enjoy life the way you've always dreamed of. Get there...with people you can bank on.®
