Creating Family-First Financial Futures

We put family first in all we do and are committed to our clients for generations, providing highly customized and comprehensive trust and wealth management services so you can enjoy today while preparing for tomorrow – all with a steadfast ally by your side.

A Letter From Our CEO

Adelphi Trust Company began with the belief that wealth management, retirement planning and estate settlement services could be provided to clients in a more holistic way and focused on the needs of a broader audience than is currently available in the market.

We know there are many seeking assistance for these fiduciary services and that this need is growing exponentially in the very near future across multiple generations. Our mission is to protect and safeguard the financial futures of our clients and provide them with the peace of mind that their intentions will be realized.

Thank you for your interest in Adelphi Trust Company and for visiting our website. I sincerely hope that you will plan to visit us in person or virtually soon to discuss how we may help you and your family.
