Without my advisor's help, the decisions I had to make as I lived on my own for the first time would have felt overwhelming. His involvement gave me peace of mind.

What really has impressed us is the way our advisor takes the time to understand where we are individually and collectively as a family on a life journey that just happens to involve finances. In our experience, his emphasis on holistic stewardship sets him apart from all others in the industry. The peace of mind he has provided, as someone who has cared alongside us on this journey, cannot be overstated.

Mark & JoannNorthbrook, IL

We had specific needs in regard to a family trust, which required management and skill. Blue Trust successfully quarterbacked all of the parties (tax accountants, trust manager, etc.) so that our efforts were greatly reduced. We only wish that we had started our relationship with Keith and the team at Blue Trust earlier, as it has been a very fruitful experience.

It has not only been a pleasure working with Keith and the Blue Trust team, it has been a life-changing experience. They helped us create a clear picture of where we were financially and where we may be in the future. This has allowed us to explore some of our desires and the ability to achieve them. There is great peace of mind knowing where you are and where you are going. The clarity has now allowed us to explore God's desires for us for the rest of our life.

Seven years later, our advisor and his team have become dear, trustworthy friends. We have made a good return on our investments, but the return has been so much more than financial for us! Our hearts have grown in an understanding of investing not only in the stock market but also investing in the kingdom of God and being generous with what we have.

Jeff & JennyLincolnshire, IL

We have worked with our advisor for over ten years. We have certainly seen some dynamic events in our world and the economy over the past ten years, yet he and Blue Trust have helped us stay on our financial plan and grow our net worth while remaining true to biblical financial principles. Our advisor and his team have lovingly held us accountable, adjusted portfolio strategies when required, and taken a personal interest in us and our family. We recommend that any Christian investor consider the team at Blue Trust.
