Custody Services

First Bank & Trust's custody services are an excellent way of directing your own investments, while maintaining thorough and accurate record-keeping control. We will collect matured or called bonds, sell or exercise stock rights on your behalf, and take care of all routine investment duties. We collect and remit income monthly or quarterly, provide you with complete statements of all transactions, and provide you with a complete tax ledger at year-end for ease of filing your tax return.
