Company Description:

At Sentinel Trust, it is our honor to serve a diverse group of affluent families, helping them enhance their legacies through their unique personal, business, and philanthropic goals.

We help families of wealth succeed and simplify: Our deeply personal level of service is based on knowing our clients’ hopes, expectations, challenges, and goals. With our personal touch, we become a true extension of the family, delivering the exceptional level of service that our clients expect and deserve.

We focus only on very high net-worth families: These families have distinctive needs and complex challenges that cannot be served as well by firms that lack our singular dedication.

We listen first: We know that every family is unique. Each of our Senior Officers serves only a small number of clients to ensure each family gets ample personal attention.

We don’t sell products or provide one-size-fits-all solutions: There is no fixed menu of investment and lifestyle services. Instead, our team of dedicated professionals leverage years of experience and multi-disciplinary expertise to build your family customized solutions. Our philosophy is to provide individualized investment management and financial guidance to all generations—whenever and however they are needed.

Above all, we are a family. Our hallmark is not only to serve our clients with excellence, but to provide for each other and our greater community.
