Based on our experience and strong relationships with Indigenous communities, FNBC has identified a growing demand for trustee and trust administrative agent services. Driven by an increase in land claim settlements, resource revenue settlements and special purpose vehicles established for structured finance and project finance transactions, the demand for highly ethical trustee and trust administrative agent services for Indigenous groups and organizations is clear.
Answering this market need, FNBC has formed a wholly owned trust company, First Nations Bank Indigenous Trust Services (FNB Trust). The primary objective of FNB Trust is to act in the best interests of the trusts and their beneficiaries. With a commitment to fulfilling the mandates intended by the settlors of the trusts, FNB Trust supports and enhances the capacity of the trusts and the trustees across Canada in alignment with FNBC’s mission toward long-term economic well-being of Indigenous Peoples.
