BHWM expands trust services under National Advisors Trust’s private labeled TRO Program.
Overland Park, KS (September 12, 2011) – National Advisors Trust, the nation’s largest independent, RIA-owned trust company, today announced that Beverly Hills Wealth Management (BHWM) has joined the trust company as a shareholder to expand its trust offerings with private labeled trust services.
“There is growing demand by clients for trusts,” said Mag Black-Scott, Founder and CEO of Beverly Hills Wealth Management. “National Advisors Trust is a national trust company and able to do business in all 50 states, which allows us to accommodate clients located in different parts of the country. Clients also require trusts with flexible options that can meet their unique needs and asset mix. National Advisors’ trust services encompass standard assets as well as non-standard assets, with a strong degree of personalization and adaptability with trust administration services.”
The TRO program is a trust marketing program that allows investment advisors to offer a full range of trust and trust custody services to their clients under private label branding, with administrative services provided by National Advisors Trust. National Advisors Trust supports participating RIA firms with a proactive marketing program, and provides a steady flow of trust education with ongoing marketing campaigns. The TRO program assists advisors with positioning for their firms, and generates referrals with Centers of Influence (CPAs and attorneys) in their respective communities. Additionally, RIAs have the benefit of an active study group of other advisor firms who communicate regularly and share experience, information and strategies regarding the TRO program.
“BHWM is building a strong brand that we want to continually reinforce,” continued Black-Scott. “The trust company’s Trust Representative Office program gives us the ability to market our trust services as a private label, which is important to further enhance and extend our brand identity.”
Ronald G. Ferguson, CEO of National Advisors Trust, commented, “Under Mag Black-Scott’s leadership, BHWM has grown rapidly, with a strong strategic direction and a client focus that drives the firm to seek and provide the very best service and offerings. With Mag’s extensive experience in the industry, she’s been able to quickly build a firm that establishes a close bond of trust with clients, and a brand that’s continually strengthened because of smart choices that will increase her portfolio and footprint across the nation.”
“As a shareholder with National Advisors Trust, we are looking forward to utilizing more of the trust company’s services in the future, including private banking delivering a wide range of bank deposit and loan facilities to clients, as well as the trust company’s AdvisorDeskTM multi-custodian technology platform that provides advanced portfolio management capabilities,” added Black-Scott.
