Houston Trust Company was founded in 1994 with $176 million in fiduciary assets. From that relatively modest beginning, we have grown to become the largest independent personal trust company in Texas, serving clients beyond our founding families throughout the U.S. and overseas.

As a trust company, we are bound, both morally and legally, to a fiduciary responsibility to our clients. This responsibility is immutable. It does not waver or evolve as legislation, technology or markets change; nor is it influenced by contemporary society’s need for accelerated gratification. Our fiduciary duty to our clients guides every decision we make as a company. Our commitment to the tradition of personal, attentive and confidential service governs our client relationships.
