What is a Trust?

A trust is a legal arrangement naming a responsible party (usually a bank trust department or a trusted person) to hold, safeguard and invest assets such as stocks, bonds, cash, or real estate for someone else’s benefit.  Trusts usually exist for a predetermined period of time or for a beneficiary’s lifetime, if appropriate. At the end of the trust’s existence, the assets are distributed according to the written terms of the trust document allowing the person who established the trust to control the distribution of the assets.

Why should you create your Estate Plan with us?

North Side Bank & Trust Company knows that you have devoted a considerable amount of time and thought to your personal finances over the years, your planning should include the eventual transfer of those assets.  By creating a good estate plan, you may not only save on taxes, but you also ensure that your property is transferred to the people specifically selected.  Trusts can be an important tool in accomplishing both objectives. They are often used as part of a plan to reduce taxes and/or assist loved ones with their financial matters.

Our Trust and Wealth Management Department help prepare an estate plan by working with our clients and their attorney’s to develop strategies that meet your unique family benefit requirements.  Trust Officers at NSBT take pride in administering and investing trusts to provide for the needs and best interests of the trust beneficiaries.
