We are pleased to share with you that as of May 1, The Pennsylvania Trust Company officially became a part of Fiduciary Trust Company International. We are confident that this exceptional partnership will enhance our service to our clients, and we are excited to begin our shared future.
The legacies of both firms have been built on integrity, unwavering commitment to client service, innovative solutions, and outcomes that we believe will only be stronger as we combine our respective talents, values and cultures. Our clients can look forward to augmented personalized solutions in the areas of investment management, tax, wealth planning, fiduciary and custody services as we combine our capabilities.
Ensuring a smooth transition and continuity of experience for our valued clients is our highest priority. As we communicated in January, clients will continue to have the same close personal relationship with our company that we all value: same client service team, same Radnor office, same phone number, and same dedication to them. Clients and their advisors can expect a continuation of the same professionally collaborative relationship which has been a hallmark of our team for almost 35 years, only now we are augmented by the resources and insights of a global asset manager.
Pennsylvania Trust and Fiduciary Trust have already begun working towards operating as one organization. In the next several weeks, our official name will change to Fiduciary Trust Company International of Pennsylvania, and we will operate by the abbreviated name Fiduciary Trust International. Our clients and their advisors will see a gradual transition to this new name and brand in our account statements, reports, email addresses, website, and more. You can always visit our website for the latest information.
Over the coming months, we will schedule a number of opportunities for our clients and friends to get to know the Fiduciary team. These communications will be led by me as I will continue to manage the Pennsylvania market for the combined company.
Our commitment to serving clients’ financial needs remains firmly in place. Please know how much we value our relationship with our clients and look forward to continuing to serve them.
With best personal regards,
George C. McFarland, Jr.
President & Chief Executive Officer
