We take the obligation of managing your assets and administering your trust very seriously. First Business provides a broad range of trust services for individuals. We can act as corporate fiduciary for your individual revocable and irrevocable trusts, estates, guardianships, charitable trusts, and Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs).

We work as an integral part of your professional team of advisors to help you fully realize your personal financial goals. As your trustee, we professionally and expertly deal with the investment, accounting, distribution, and tax reporting complexities of your trust. Our accessibility, stability, and expertise make us a trustee you can rely on with exceeding capabilities in Personal Trust Services, Charitable Trust Services, and Estate Settlement Services.
