Stamford community bank launches advisory unit
First County Bank consolidated its trust and investments division into a new subsidiary, First County Advisors, the Stamford-based bank recently announced.
First County Advisors will offer investment management, financial planning, trust administration, estate planning and fiduciary services for consumers and business clients.
The company said it plans to host seminars, networking events and webinars to help educate investors and clients.
First County Bank CEO and Chairman Rey Giallongo said the name First County Advisors “is simply a more accurate description of who we are.” He said the advisory unit would build on services that have been offered by First County Bank since it opened a trust and investments division in 1995.
