Fiduciary Trust International announces that Allison Chance Carter and Timothy Barton, CFA, have joined the firm as managing directors and senior trust officer/trust counsel and senior portfolio manager, respectively.
They are based in Atlanta, a region where Fiduciary Trust International is expanding its presence, the firm said.
“The Atlanta region is a terrific wealth management market with many families and institutions that can benefit from our customized investment, trust and estate, and wealth planning services,” said David W. Edmiston, Fiduciary Trust International’s regional managing director for Greater Atlanta. “Allie and Tim are highly respected wealth management professionals with deep experience and strong ties to the Atlanta community. My teammates and I are excited to welcome them to Fiduciary, and we look forward to working with them to help more clients in Atlanta and across the Southeast achieve financial peace of mind.”
Fiduciary Trust International announced in November 2021 its entry into the Southeast with a local team in Atlanta led by Edmiston who had previously worked with Abbot Downing, Wells Fargo Private Bank, and its predecessor companies for more than 30 years.
The growing Atlanta hub strengthens Fiduciary Trust International’s East Coast presence from Massachusetts to Florida and west to California.
