Wealth Management Services
At First National Bank & Trust, our Wealth Management team provides customers with sound financial strategies. Our investment management philosophy is to invest according to a proven and disciplined investment process. To do this we are committed to the following principles:
- We base our decisions on sound principles, not on predictions.
- We will not chase the latest fad or hot investment.
- We manage volatility through asset allocation and invest in securities with high financial quality and strength.
- We manage risk through portfolio diversification.
- We create a comprehensive investment program based on your needs and objectives.
- There is no guarantee that a diversified portfolio will enhance overall returns or outperform a non-diversified portfolio.
- Diversification does not protect against market risk. Asset allocation does not ensure a profit or protect against a loss.
