Private Wealth Services Team

Community Trust and Investment Company’s primary aim of trust services and estate planning is to ensure that your wealth is distributed according to your wishes.

Providing for the next generation – leaving a lasting legacy – requires that you plan thoughtfully and strategically. For instance, avoiding unnecessary taxation requires planning, but ensuring that your final wishes regarding your wealth are accommodated is a matter of extreme trust.

We focus on building trusting relationships with our clients. Trust extends to the investment management activities required to ensure the completion of specific wishes, including settling your estate.
