Each of us in this organization lives and breathes a belief that we are engaged in a truly noble calling, the demands of which are unlike those of any other profession. This is because standards for fiduciaries mandate a level of unwavering conduct, loyalty and personal integrity matched by few other disciplines in this changing and uncertain world. To serve as your trustee or fiduciary, one must find comfort and pleasure being immersed daily in an environment of uncompromised decency and honesty, earning and receiving total confidence from our clients by doing genuine good for them and their families. For this rare individual the personal rewards are high.
It is with this in mind that we assure you, the prospective customer, that the basic policies of the trust business are steeped in the tradition of the common law, withstanding the test of time. This also serves to gently but clearly remind those of us in the profession over and over of those certain cardinal principles, practices and precedents of long standing, that, if adhered to without fail, will benefit the client, our community - all of us - guaranteeing the personal success in this distinct, increasingly vital and growing profession. In this tradition, we pledge our honor, reputation and names.
