You also want to make sure you have the right financial planning in place for when the time comes to transfer your wealth to those you care about. Southeastern Trust’s trust and estate services can help you with that.

Trust Services

Trusts can be used to manage and protect your assets, to help you avoid probate, and to aid in tax planning. To assess your specific trust needs and start developing your personal strategy, our specialized financial planning and wealth management professionals meet with you personally.

We can help you with setting up and maintaining trusts such as:

  • Special Needs Trusts
  • Asset Protection Trusts
  • Court-Appointed Guardianships or Conservatorships
  • Community Property Trusts
  • Charitable Trusts
  • Bill Pay Revocable Trusts

Our Southeastern Trust team can also guide you if you have been appointed by the court or by legal document to serve as a guardian, conservator, or executor.
