Fiduciary Investment Management
ANB Financial Services knows that there are no "typical" clients. In a world where you can find the "typical" investment management and trust products anywhere, ANB does not use a cookie cutter approach. In everything we do – from customized solutions around each client's unique needs and circumstances to pricing that says, "fair value" – we show that we understand and care.
Clients appreciate our professionalism, flexibility, and responsiveness, but we know the main reason they say with us, often for decades, is because of the way we make them feel. That extra mile is all about service. We are happy to provide these services to individuals and families, businesses, and charitable organizations.
Whether your objective is capital appreciation, income, growth or tax sensitivity, we will develop a solution that fits your needs. Your team includes a trust administrator, a portfolio manager, and your banker, who will collaborate with your attorney, CPA, and other advisors to ensure a holistic approach to managing your assets and trusts.
Our portfolio managers provide institutional quality investment research, design, and asset allocation providing the required due diligence, selection and ongoing monitoring of the investments offered. ANB Bank believes no client is a "model", but instead will be treated as an individual.
