Trusts & Estate Settlement

As an independent and privately held trust company, First Kentucky Trust (FKT) is uniquely positioned to offer a comprehensive range of fiduciary and planning solutions through our accessible team with the flexibility to make decisions quickly.

Our experienced trust administration team includes attorneys and CTFAs who can work with family attorneys and advisors to design and implement a trust solution that best meets their unique circumstances. Unlike many large organizations, we offer flexibility and reasonableness while dutifully administering the trust in the best interest of the beneficiaries.

  • Asset Collection & Valuation
  • Inventory Appraisal
  • Bequest Fulfillment
  • Probate & Tax Filings

The estate settlement process can be complicated and lengthy. At First Kentucky Trust, we strive to keep clients informed and advance the process as smoothly and as quickly as possible. Our trust professionals have years of experience in probate and estate administration and are available to answer questions and help guide a family through the estate settlement process.
