Personal Trust and Estate Administration Services
Personal Trust Services
Through Personal Trust Services, you can establish a special relationship with us that allows the bank to act as your trustee or agent, holding title to designated assets and managing them for your benefit (and that of your named beneficiaries). Revocable or irrevocable trusts can be established during your lifetime or you can create testamentary trusts through the terms of your will.
Under a trust relationship, we will help ensure that your wealth is managed according to your wishes, now and for future generations. We can also help:
Qualified Terminal Interest Property Trust
Designed to ensure your designated beneficiaries cannot be changed against your wishes, while still maintaining the unlimited marital deduction
Allows you to hold assets in trust for generations to come, and removes exposure to taxes as wealth passes to each generation
Irrevocable Life Insurance Trust
Provides flexibility and liquidity for meeting the financial needs of your beneficiaries, reducing and paying estate taxes, and replacing inheritance lost to estate taxes

We can facilitate all the details of administering your estate and distributing your assets — making sure your wishes are carried out to the letter.

By creating a special-needs trust, you can help provide supplemental support for a disabled person — while maintaining their eligibility for government assistance. We can provide professional management of your trust assets and help make sure that your loved one receives continuous financial protection. But we do more than that. Our dedicated professionals will work closely with you and your family to help provide an optimal quality of life for the beneficiary. Your trust can provide invaluable funding for life-enhancing opportunities such as education, recreation, custom living arrangements and companionship.

Giving back to the world around us is something very close to our hearts. Establishing a Family Charitable Foundation, Trust, or Endowment is one way you and your family can organize and maximize the assets you choose to share with the philanthropies you support — now and in perpetuity
A Family Charitable Foundation, Trust, or Endowment is a tax-exempt entity established to accept charitable contributions, manage those assets and make grants to other charities. As the founder, you can direct how the assets will be managed and hand-select grant recipients. Unlike making an outright gift to public charities, having a private foundation allows your perpetual trust to take an active role in philanthropy.
We have the expertise to help you develop and administer your Family Charitable Foundation, Trust or Endowment according to your vision. Our charitable-management professionals and portfolio managers use a disciplined process to create a customized investment portfolio, actively managing your cash flow to balance the needs of your foundation against planned distributions to the charities you choose.
