Our history: In 1998 a handful of key professionals with longstanding roles in the southeastern U.S. trust industry established a new Florida chartered trust company. Salem Trust Company was created to serve the needs of municipalities and other institutions.
These founding employees, many of whom are still with the company, brought with them a long-standing loyalty and respect from their clients. Salem Trust soon grew into Florida's provider of choice for custodial and fiduciary services to state, county and municipal clients.
Our current business plan: We have since expanded our service into other states, but remain Florida's largest independent custodian for municipalities.
Today, Salem Trust is the best it has ever been, offering our clients strengths equal to those of our largest competitors while managing our client relationships with the flexibility of a small firm.
Who we serve: Currently more than 300 individual and institutional clients demonstrate their confidence in Salem Trust by entrusting more than $8 billion in assets to our exceptional care and service.
