When it comes to protecting and transferring wealth, trusts are among the most valuable instruments in today’s estate planning toolbox. Within certain limits set by law, trusts allow you remarkable flexibility in how you use and disburse assets while living and after death and can help shape your legacy.


The administration of a trust or settling of an estate can be a very complex task. Our trust advisors have the experience and expertise to provide the guidance or administrative services you need every step of the way. We recognize that each trust and estate, each circumstance, each family, is unique and work closely with you and your team of trusted professionals to ensure your distinct needs are met.


Creating a trust and well thought out estate plan can be advantageous for you and your family in many different circumstances and can have an important impact not only on your legacy but on your finances today. Below are some of the most common ways an estate plan may benefit you and your loved ones:
