Clear benefits for advisors and their clients

  • Clients benefit from access to professional trustees to preserve and protect their assets
  • Advisors benefit by retaining the relationship and assets under management following the client’s death (as opposed to situations where the local bank is obligated to step in and take over the assets as trustee upon the death of the client)
  • The PTC also allows you to bring in new assets or consolidate outside assets from another trust
  • As an investment advisor, you manage client assets in trust with The Private Trust Company the same way that you do today via LPL Financial Advisory Services.
  • As a financial planner you can count on The Private Trust Company to help implement the plan you have created for your clients
