Can You Spot a Trust Company?

As they liked to say back in the age of print, you can't judge a book by its cover.

Optima Bank and Trust, despite its name, offers no trustee or investment services.

Glenmede, despite its ad logo, is of course a trust company.

Takeaway: Use "trust" in your name if you wish your personal banking services to sound upscale. Eschew "trust" if you want to be seen as a forward-looking wealth manager.

Hey, we don't make the marketing rules. We just report them.
