Putting the trust back in trusts


Security and real trust in the protection of your family’s future is something money can’t buy. Independent Trust Company was built on the foundation that it is our responsibility to lead by example and provide a place where families can be authentic, connected and cared for as you and your trust intended.

What We Do


Simply put, the company investing your legacy should not be the company that looks after your trust. At ITC, your best interest is our only interest. Founded by 5th generation beneficiaries, we have a keen understanding of what it means to be trust beneficiaries and the value of having someone focus exclusively on the effective and honest management of your trust. Our culture revolves around creating an excellent experience for our clients— you can rely on ITC to deliver promptly on cash commitments, annual reviews, taxes, transitions and statements.

Our definition of success is empowering families using the opportunities for growth and support a trust provides. Because trusts are our only business, our time is spent focused on our clients. You can know our priority is for you to be empowered by your trust...not restrained. When you call, we pick up the phone. And since we aren’t trying to sell you on stocks or other investment products, we are your best advocates in making your family’s trust work as it was intended.
