As one of the larger providers of trust and investment management products and services between Pittsburgh and Harrisburg, AmeriServ Trust and Financial Services Company is committed to delivering personalized, professional service to its clients. Its staff of approximately 39 professionals administer assets valued at approximately $1.9 billion at December 31, 2007. The Trust Company has two primary business divisions, traditional trust and union collective investment funds. Traditional trust includes personal trust products and services such as personal portfolio investment management, estate planning and administration, custodial services and pre-need trusts. Also, institutional trust products and services such as 401(k) plans, defined benefit and defined contribution employee benefit plans, and individual retirement accounts are included in this division. The union collective investment funds, namely the ERECT and BUILD Funds, are designed to invest union pension dollars in construction projects that utilize union labor. At December 31, 2007, AmeriServ Trust and Financial Services had total assets of $2.9 million and total shareholder’s equity of $2.7 million. The Trust Company is subject to regulation and supervision by the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia and the Pennsylvania Department of Banking.
 
The diversification of the revenue-generating divisions within the trust company is one of the primary reasons for its successful profitable growth. The specialized union collective funds have attracted several international labor unions as investors as well as many local unions from a number of states. At the end of 2007, assets in these union funds totaled approximately $415 million.
 
The Trust Investment Division focuses on producing better-than-average investment returns by offering an array of individually managed accounts and several asset allocation disciplines utilizing non-proprietary mutual funds. In addition, the Tactical High Yield Bond Fund, the Pathroad Funds and the Premier Equity Discipline are examples of the Investment Division’s ability to respond to the needs and expectations of our clients. The diversified array of investment options, experienced staff and good investment returns facilitate client retention and the development of new clients.
 
In 2007, the Trust Company continued to be a major contributor of earnings to the corporation. Gross revenue in 2007 amounted to $6.9 million which represents an increase of $248,000 or 3.7% over 2006.
