At Allen Trust Company we work with the full range of trusts including revocable, irrevocable, charitable trusts, and more. Protecting your family’s assets and preserving your wealth for future generations are just two reasons to create a trust. Saving time, outside professional fees and paperwork by avoiding probate are other commonly cited reasons for creating a trust. Trusts can also provide clear direction on how assets should be distributed, what costs can be covered and who benefits from the assets.
Peace of mind is integral to your estate planning. Make sure the person or firm you entrust with your assets has high integrity and all the financial and administrative acumen you need. Family members and friends are often unaware of the complexities involved and time required to administer a trust.
Transparency and the careful handling of delicate family dynamics are key aspects of our approach. Clients count on our honesty and reliability, as well as specialized knowledge of applicable laws. As a trust-only bank, we have stringent standards to uphold and we are reviewed at least annually by internal auditors or by state examiners (or both).
Our entire ethos and practice is surrounded by making decisions local. We accomplish this by maintaining and enhancing personal relationships. We get to know you and your goals so we can tailor our services to best meet your needs and those of your beneficiaries. Each trust is created with its own unique goals and parameters. Our aim is to understand your intent thoroughly and to have that guide us in our trust administration implementation activities.
