About Stifel Trust Company, N.A.

Many people think of trusts as financial tools exclusively for the super rich; to protect generations of accumulated wealth and keep "Junior" from blowing his inheritance on fast cars and ill-fated schemes.

Once upon a time, that may have been accurate, but not any longer.

Today, trusts are established to transfer wealth, accommodate tax regulations, direct charitable giving, and care for family members. Trusts are often chosen as a method to pass assets from one generation to the next outside of the probate courts, because trusts are private while probate is a public process.


With your Stifel Financial Advisor's investing experience and estate planning resources, Stifel Trust completes the circle.
