Wealthy families don’t succeed by accident. Planning is necessary for a family’s wealth and values to persevere through many generations. However, the best wealth management plan cannot succeed if the pieces are planned in isolation.
Sentinel Trust takes a holistic view of tax, estate, investment, family business, governance, and philanthropic goals to develop and manage each highly customized wealth management plan. It begins by getting to know you, your spouse, and if appropriate, your children and their children.
While we must defer to practicing attorneys and accountants to draft documents and prepare tax returns, our experience with many families of extraordinary means allows us to assist in the development of formalized plans. Because we are chartered as a trust company, we are able to serve as corporate fiduciary and effectively administer complex planning vehicles.
Know also that we can speak in plain English, without acronyms or legalese. We are warm. We are engaged. We are smart. We consider even the smallest details – both financial and interpersonal. We are passionate about this work and it shows.
Perhaps, for the first time, your family will love it too.
