Financial Planning

Preparing You For What Comes Next

You know where you want to be financially. But how do you get there? Financial planning and investing should be done with your goals in mind. And how successful you are depends on your strategies and the people you trust to implement them.

We take the time to get to know you, so you can make informed decisions and design a long-term financial roadmap. We can help with many of your financial pain points:

  • Cash/Debt Management
  • Investment Planning
  • Education Funding
  • Retirement Planning
  • Life Insurance Analysis
  • Estate, Tax, and Succession Planning
  • Health Insurance Coverage
  • Charitable Giving

How We Help You Stay on Course

No two plans are alike. First Bank & Trust’s financial advisors work to understand what you picture in your future. Here’s what you can expect our process to look like:


Only after we have a deep understanding of where you want to be can we help you get there. We ask you to describe your ideal retirement scenario, the dreams you have for your children and grandchildren, and how you want to be remembered in your community.


We analyze your situation from every conceivable angle while looking at the overall market. We consider the tax implications on your estate and study the impact of philanthropic gifts. Our evaluation is ongoing to ensure you meet your short- and long-term goals.


Your plan is your plan. It’s driven by what we learn about you. From there, we provide sound advice on how to preserve, invest, manage, and transfer your wealth in ways important to you.


We continually evaluate your strategy and work in tandem to adjust your plan for life-altering events, such as marriage, children, or retirement. Because we take a holistic approach, you can stay on course.
