Trust Company announces new publication

The Sanibel Captiva Trust Company has launched a rebranded quarterly publication entitled, “FORESIGHT.” The new look and name reflect the content included within, which covers not only economic and investment advice, but estate planning and lifestyle issues.

Readership of the earlier publication expanded the last 20 years, with distribution growing to some 10,000 each quarter. Company Founder and Chairman Al Hanser reported that the articles evolved over time from primarily stock market content to a broader spectrum, so the team worked together to select a new name.

Each issue features current outlook and portfolio strategy by Chief Investment Officer Ian Breusch, plus three articles authored in-house by company professionals. April’s issue also includes articles on the importance of Florida domicile, how to make senior living work as a couple, and wise use of an investment portfolio in a volatile market.
