Because of CapWealth’s affiliation with LPL, your assets are managed with multiple levels of security:

With PTC, CapWealth can remain as your investment advisor and primary relationship manager for any trust accounts established. PTC assigns a trust officer (not a call center) who is responsible for all day to day administrative duties of the trust.

While LPL provides its technology, guidance, and oversight to assure prudent management, CapWealth and the trust’s beneficiaries establish a trust’s investment policy, providing flexibility for market conditions and client needs.

When considering requests for discretionary payouts under trust documents, PTC weighs heavily information we provide regarding your family dynamic, history, and relationships.
