Since 1987, Members Trust Company has been providing trust and investment services to members and their families. Credit unions across America pooled their resources to form Members Trust Company with the mission of creating a professional trust & investment company that would exist for the benefit of members and not individual stockholders. Management and staff of Members Trust Company are charged with a corporate mandate from our credit union owners to look after and protect our members’ best interest. In today’s times of broken promises and uncertainty, it is admirable to see that credit unions formed a company dedicated to you and not Wall Street or private stockholders.
As a corporate trustee, we place a high priority on applying the “Golden Rule” to the people we serve. We want to understand the “whole story” and to never lose sight of the fact that someone’s loved ones are relying on both our professional competency and capacity to care. The question we ask ourselves is: “How would we want our loved one to be treated by a corporate trustee?”
Our owners, America’s Credit Unions with over $180 billion in assets, provide the financial strength and strategic direction for Members Trust Company. From our owners, Members Trust Company derives its credit union philosophy to serve members, and leverages the resources of credit unions with over 20 offices across the United States. So if you move to a different part of the country, it is likely you will find a Members Trust Company office.
Members Trust Company is truly a unique financial institution. Chartered and regulated by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency as a special purpose savings bank, Members Trust Company is owned and managed by not-for-profit credit unions. One could describe our objective as a hybrid with the goal of making a profit while providing the financial advice, investments and other services under a cooperative umbrella of credit unions at the lowest cost possible and always in our client’s best interest.
