Your best interest. Always.
We do not sell financial products. It is simply not in our clients’ best interest. We adhere to the highest standards of fiduciary excellence while providing personalized service and solutions that deliver the best outcomes for you, not commissions.
What you can expect from us:
We have been independent from the start. Our autonomy ensures that your well-being is at the center of everything we do.
Every client is assigned a dedicated, client centric team comprised of a trust relationship officer, wealth management advisor and team service coordinator. This team works closely with other key Greenleaf Trust professionals to provide holistic perspectives and solutions.
We align ourselves with our clients’ best interests as evidenced in our independent ownership, transparent fee structure, in-depth and conflict-free internal research, and strict avoidance of proprietary (in-house) funds.
