In today’s volatile and ever changing environment, it is important to have a professional partner to provide trusted guidance to protect your assets and meet your financial goals. This is why affluent individuals, families and institutions have turned to Hancock Bank for help.

At Hancock Trust & Asset Management, our goal is to produce long-term financial well being without exposing client portfolios to excessive risk. Our focus is to outperform each fund’s benchmark on a long-term basis while minimizing the risk profile of the portfolio through issue and sector diversification.

We are able to accomplish this through our four investment principles:

Quality

We focus on high quality financial instruments. We invest in companies that exhibit financial strength through solid balance sheets, consistent growth of revenues and earnings, and stable cash flows.

Value

We purchase securities that possess the greatest relative value. Companies are not only evaluated based on their own merits, but also are compared to other investment options.

Discipline

We invest according to a proven, disciplined investment process which over the long run should produce favorable risk-adjusted results. We will not chase the latest fads or 'hot investments.' We are not market timers in search of quick returns.

Control of Risk

We invest in securities with high financial quality and trading liquidity. We manage non-systematic (issue specific) risk through portfolio diversification.

* Investments made in Trust accounts are not deposits or obligations of, or guaranteed by, Hancock Bank and are not insured by the FDIC or any government agency.
