At Farmers National Bank, we offer a full array of Trust and Asset Management services including:

Financial Planning

Our financial planning process is based on the following core principles; Assessment, Goal Setting, creating a Plan, Execution of the Plan, and Plan Review. By adhering to this process with every client, we bring structure to your long-term goals and objectives. With the expertise, resources, and personal commitment of FNB's Trust and Asset Management Department, you will have the peace of mind knowing your future is secure.

Asset Management

Need help with your investments? It requires a great deal of time and expertise.

When you open an asset management account with us, we first determine your financial goals and risk tolerance. With this understanding, we then develop investment guidelines to meet your approval.

We have access to research and will analyze the best course of action for your portfolio, given your objectives, risk tolerance and the current market outlook. By delivering comprehensive, risk-sensitive solutions for your asset management needs, we achieve your investment goals.

Retirement Solutions

There are several important tax implications and investment decisions to consider before receiving your 401(k) or other retirement distributions.

Proper management for your retirement is perhaps the most crucial factor in securing your financial future. Management of your retirement plan can be done with a Self-Directed account or an Asset Management account.

If you are confident making and monitoring your own investment decisions, our Self-Directed account is best for you.

On the other hand, if you are not confident making your own investment decisions or simply do not have the time to monitor your portfolio and current market conditions, then our Asset Management account is for you. Your account will be managed and monitored under the watchful eye of our investment professionals.
