“Trust Concierge is a high-touch service designed to provide complimentary guidance on selecting a trust firm for your particular needs,” publisher Jerry Cooper explains.
“Recommendations will be made on suitability for your client situation.” * * *
The plan is for Trust Concierge to go live early next year as a toll-free 24/7 phone support line ready to interview advisors, weigh their criteria against our list and make introductions to firms that fit the bill. * * *
There’s also going to be a free app for both iPhone and Android phones.
