Trust & fiduciary services

The Nixon Peabody Trust Company has full fiduciary powers and is able to serve as trustee, executor, guardian, and conservator. We offer the broad experience of a major financial advisor, paired with the personal attention you’d expect from a boutique firm. With billions of dollars in assets under management, we understand the immense responsibility given to us by our clients, and we promise to provide responsive service worthy of that trust.

Investment advice & management

Good investment strategies consider all the components that make each investor unique — their personal priorities, risk tolerance, and liquidity, to name just three.

We learn about each client’s financial situation and goals, and offer our analysis of market conditions, investment options, and expected returns. Through our personalized approach, our advisors develop a strategic investment plan and portfolio tailored to each client.

How we can help:

  • Perform a net-worth analysis
  • Categorize investment assets
  • Identify investment goals
  • Create an investment plan
  • Recommend an appropriate asset allocation
  • Implement each client’s portfolio and monitor results
Income tax planning & preparation

We offer strategic tax planning that bolsters our clients’ financial objectives. Our first step is a thorough review of each client’s income and investment structure. Then we create a plan that balances growth objectives with the right tax minimization strategies.

Our strategies include:

  • Interest expense characterization
  • Capital gains and dividends planning
  • Charitable giving
  • Tax shelters and tax-free investments
  • Alternative Minimum Tax reduction
  • Deferral or acceleration of income or deductions
  • Planning for purchase or sale transactions
  • Deferred compensation
  • Formation of trusts, family partnerships, or other legal entities
Trust Administration

We’ll take care of the day-to-day management of your trust or estate, so you can focus on enjoying what you’ve built. We team each client with an individual trust administrator who will offer close personal attention and a comprehensive approach to your short- and long-term needs.

What we do:

  • Disburse checks and property in accordance with trust or estate-settlement terms
  • Evaluate retirement needs
  • Pay bills on your behalf, including tax payments
