Personal Trust Administration

Trusts are often used to reduce estate taxes, to avoid probate, or to guide the future use of inherited wealth. Bankers Trust has long been a faithful partner to families in the administration of trusts, and we take great pride in the fact that our client relationships often span generations. We are a full-service trust provider with fiduciary or administrative responsibility for over $4.5 billion in client assets. We have the expertise to accommodate trust needs from the basic to the complex.

At Bankers Trust, each relationship is a priority. Our team​ of Trust Officers is dedicated to administering trusts faithfully and to delivering the highest level of service and attention to our clients.
