Investment Management

Assets are managed with the oversight of our internal Trust Investment Committee.  We partner with external investment managers and experts, and employ both active and passive strategies. We take into consideration the circumstances and requirements of the account, the risk tolerance and risk capacity of the client, and investment preferences.

Trust and Estate Administration

Our Officers have years of experience in trust and estate administration, with varying areas of expertise to guide you, either as sole trustee, co-trustee, successor trustee/executor, or as agent for the trustee/executor.

Having a trusted partner by your side to competently execute the plans you have created with your legal advisors provides a comfort many families seek.

Retirement Planning

Salisbury Bank Wealth Advisory works with your company to provide advice for retirement plan investment options or to manage those accounts in accordance with the Investment Policy Statement we develop together. We may work with your preferred third party administrator or we have established relationships with others you may select. Similarly, there are multiple options for plan platforms to allow for an efficient solution depending upon the type and size of the plan.

Our Financial Planning Process

Our planning process includes:

  • Utilizing comprehensive financial management  incorporating investments, banking, and trust administration.
  • Taking a planning-based approach toward investment management, geared to meeting cash flow and future retirement needs, rather than simply being focused on stock market trends.
  • Working closely with our clients’ legal and tax advisors to fashion an overall financial plan that fits their goals and objectives.
  • Under one roof, coordinating banking and investing to ensure portfolio income is easily accessible from your checking account, if necessary.

We Make Sure Your Money Is There When You Need It

One of the biggest challenges in retirement is managing your cash flow. We will help you:

  • Identify all of your predictable income sources, including pension, social security retirement income or annuities
  • Factor in outside income sources, including retirement savings
  • Add up your known liabilities, such as a mortgage or any other loans, and expenses
  • Chart your short and long-term cash flow needs
  • Project spending patterns and align them with expected income and portfolio withdrawals

Monitoring Progress

Retirement is an ongoing effort and collaboration.  Life is constantly moving goals and targets, and therefore your planning is in periodic need of updating and adjustment.  We work WITH you to keep you on track with the plan we develop together, and we keep you informed and in control along the way.
