Members Trust Company will partner with you to help you reach your investment goals. Our expertise includes managing investments for objectives like aggressive growth and income. As you pass through the various stages of your life, your financial needs and objectives will change. Our core principle is that allocation across investment classes should realign as your life, needs and financial goals change. We believe that since investments involve risk, they should be prudently managed. We do this by offering diversification, asset allocation, continual monitoring, and a customized investment policy for each investment portfolio.
Investment Policy Statement
Investments should be made only after a clear objective is established for the portfolio. When you partner with Members Trust Company, our staff will help you develop a clear investment policy statement for your account, which acts as a road map to construct a customized investment portfolio. Developing a personal policy statement involves a process that includes analyzing your tolerance for risk, investment time period, personal objectives, taxes and any other personal preferences or constraints.
