With several million dollars in assets, a strong history of growth and profitability, the authorization to conduct business in all 50 states and high ratings from the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, FNBT is poised to provide independence, security, trust and protection to its clients. While providing the added security of FNBT, BBT remains a local organization that offers Trust Services with a person-centered approach tailored to each client’s specific needs.
