Empire Trust protects and advances the entrepreneurial spirit of America by administering trusts owning closely-held, family businesses. Through trust relationships, Empire Trust actively governs family businesses upon the death or disability of a patriarch, matriarch or founder. Empire Trust is the solution for successful business succession.
Many business owners interpret their family legacy as an extension of their business legacy. Empire Trust is the business owners’ trust company. For business owners, family wealth is generally invested in the operations of the enterprise, resulting in a limited amount of liquidity in the family’s portfolio. Empire Trust recognizes the security that a family business provides and understands how quickly that security can be lost.
