Argent Trust Overview

Preserving Your Wealth

Argent Trust Company is the flagship subsidiary of Argent Financial Group, a leading independent client asset services firm.

For over 30 years, we have helped individuals, families, businesses, and institutions ensure their legacy and safeguard their wealth through trust administration and estate planning, investment management, and other fiduciary services.

Argent Trust operates under a Tennessee-domiciled trust charter so that clients across our corporate footprint may benefit from Tennessee’s very advantageous trust laws. Tennessee is a friendly state to trusts because of its favorable tax laws and other asset protection legislation available to anyone in the U.S. as long as a qualified trustee is a resident of Tennessee or part of a Tennessee-based trust institution, such as Argent. Visit our blog to read more about the benefits of a Tennessee trust.

Argent is Tennessee’s largest state-chartered independent trust company.
