Leaving a Legacy with Navigoe Trust Services

"The sooner we learn to be jointly responsible, the easier the sailing will be."
- Ella Maillart

There was a time when trustee services were provided by your local banker, someone who you and your family knew personally. Unfortunately, such relationships are rare in today’s era of multinational mega-banks. However, it’s more important than ever to work with a professional trustee who has a relationship with you, is accessible to all beneficiaries and can help you and your heirs navigate financial decisions. Learn how Navigoe brings together the relationship of the traditional community banker with the expertise and resources of a modern estate planner.
