Finalized Partnership of Busey and IST
Busey is pleased to expand its presence in Southwest Florida by partnering with Investors' Security Trust (IST), a preeminent wealth management firm in Fort Myers.
This partnership brings together two organizations with a history of financial expertise and community involvement. IST's shared beliefs, tradition of service excellence and trusted leadership will expand Busey through balanced, integrated growth strategies that generate value of our 4 Pillars—associates, customers, shareholders and communities.
Significantly enhancing Busey and IST's existing wealth management presence, the combined Busey Wealth Management franchise now manages nearly $9.5B in assets, broadening the expertise and level of service available to clients and allowing us to deliver preeminent bank, trust and wealth advisory solutions to clients.
Coming together, IST offers experienced, trusted advisors, adding talent to Busey's tenured wealth management team and strengthening our presence in the Southwest Florida market. Our new size and scope allow for expanded capabilities, coupled with local experts that clients know and trust—giving us advantages over competitors, both large and small.
Busey and IST are partnering to deliver individualized service and comprehensive capabilities.
