With your priorities as our guide, we create sophisticated wealth transfer strategies that allow you to maintain your current lifestyle while providing for your loved ones and giving to the community.

Services tailored to meet your needs

You can count on our professionals to conscientiously administer your trust according to your unique objectives, such as:

  • Maintaining your current lifestyle
  • Creating a legacy for the benefit of your loved ones
  • Protecting your assets from excessive taxation as well as unexpected health, personal and business risks

Among our services:

  • Wealth transfer planning
  • Custom trust solutions
  • Trust administration
  • Estate settlement services

  • Securities custody
  • Tax-related responsibilities

Count on Northern Trust to provide proactive, expert advice to help you navigate the complex and often emotional decisions that come with providing for your — and your loved ones’ — future.
