It’s Our Anniversary – Celebrating 50 Years!

This year marks the 50th year that Chemical Bank has been offering trust and investment management services to our clients. Established in 1964, we are proud to be home to the largest bank trust department among all of the Michigan-based banks. Our Wealth Management team is comprised of outstanding professionals who are dedicated to serving the needs of our clients across the state.

Chemical Bank Wealth Management had a small start when the state of Michigan granted trust powers to Chemical Bank, and we began assisting clients in February of 1964. We started as just a folder in a drawer when the first trust account was opened in April. The following September, we hired our first trust officer. After our first year of business, we had assets under management of just over $3 million.

A small start has led to big things. In our 50 years, we have grown from that desk drawer to a department nearing 80 employees across three wealth management offices and an advisor presence in every Chemical Bank branch with assets under management of more than $3 billion.

And we are not done growing yet! We are excited to continue this 50-year trend of growth and expansion with the integration of our fourth trust office in Traverse City. We are committed to providing customized solutions built around your financial goals. We look forward to getting to know you and helping you make the best decisions for your investments and your family.

We are pleased to be celebrating 50 years of wealth management services, all of our clients who have made those years a possibility and our employees who work passionately every day serving those clients. Please join us in celebrating this great milestone!
