Let's Meet

American Trust can help you put your financial plan into action.

Developing a plan is just the starting point; financial success is best achieved when that plan is actively monitored, managed and adjusted to your changing lifestyle.


Prudent Investment Process

At many investment firms, each advisor has their own investment philosophy. This often leads to inconsistent and less-than-desirable outcomes for clients.  At American Trust, investment strategies are established and overseen by our Trust Investment Committee, a team of senior leaders and highly credentialed investment professionals all focused on your success.

  • Keeping costs under control can have a positive impact over the long term.

  • Investment management for you risk capacity and tolerance.

  • Unconflicted and extensive investment option availability.

  • Provides a balanced long term evaluation of each investment relative to its peers.
