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.

A TEAM APPROACH

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.

Investment Strategy

Your investments may change, but these core philosophies will always be present.

 

  • Allocating savings across investment categories can help lower your risk.

  • High quality assets with better historical track records can provide stability.

  • 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.
