For more than 160 years, Wells Fargo has helped individuals and families build, manage, preserve and transition wealth by providing a wide range of comprehensive trust services administered with objectivity and care.

As you consider the trust solutions available to you…

You’ve enriched your life and the lives of those around you. Now, as you consider how to sustain and transition your wealth to the people and institutions that you care about most, you should find a trustee that can deliver personalized trust services for you.

A personal trust can be an integral part of your total financial life as well as a commitment to the future. A personal trust may help: reduce estate taxes; provide for the proper distribution of assets to beneficiaries; assist you in the event that you become incapacitated; and safeguard your legacy, while preserving your peace of mind.

At the heart of it, your personal trust is part of your legacy. You define your goals. We’ll work with you and your advisors to select trust services that help address those goals, through specialized services designed to support your family, transfer assets and address your philanthropic and tax-minimization needs.

Our specialized wealth services include a wide variety of services to help you meet more complex estate planning needs such as estate settlement, special needs trust or multi-generational wealth planning through a legacy trust.

…selecting the right trustee may be your most important decision

Your trustee has the legal authority and fiduciary duty to manage the assets in your trust on your behalf. Family and friends are often ill-prepared or unwilling to take on this responsibility, which is one major reason why so many choose a corporate trustee.

Wells Fargo has served as a corporate trustee for more than a hundred years, and has the objectivity and knowledge to help safeguard your interests. We have the experience and resources to administer your trust in compliance with state and federal regulations.
