By definition, a trust company is an organization that acts as a fiduciary, or simply put, an organization that holds investments on behalf of individuals or corporations. While this includes administrative responsibilities—such as registering & filing taxes, processing & settling trades and overall safekeeping of accounts—a trust company like Canadian Western Trust (“CWT”) delivers much more than that!
Much of CWT’s success as a trust company can be attributed to the ‘behind-the-scenes’ administrative work, but it is also our star power of products, partnerships and people that really give independent financial advisors the edge they need to grow their business.
An RRSP is the staple of most financial planning businesses, but as an entrepreneur, you never know where your clients can take you. Business owners might ask for employee incentive plans or clients might inquire about a flat fee for your service. The industry is always evolving and business is constantly in flux.
As a trust company, CWT keeps you informed and brings you the most innovative products to serve your clients and capitalize on new business.
