Investment Services

We work with Savant Capital Management to provide investment services.


The unique partnership between State Bank and Savant Capital Management provides a powerful integration of a truly independent trustee with a world class registered investment advisor.

Since its inception in 1986, Savant has provided best-in-class investment services to clients who are neither speculative nor high-risk investors.  Typical Savant clients are concerned with preserving capital, growing assets, and avoiding unnecessary risk.  Their investment approach is based on academic research, and tailored to individual circumstances and risk preferences.

Together with Savant, we use wisdom, experience and skill to help each client define an investment plan and nurture their life goals. 

Our Common Sense Investment Philosophy:

  • Utilizes true no-load investments
  • Leverages a strategy of board global diversification
  • Harnesses the long-term efficiency of the markets
  • Employs conservative, not speculative strategies
  • Applies smart, tax-efficient processes
  • Practices disciplined rebalancing
  • Often includes integrated financial planning
  • Draws upon a keen awareness that cost and taxes matter
  • Is based on sound academic research

Savant Capital Management has been recognized as a top advisor by a number of national publications, including Rob Report Worth, Bloomberg, Wealth Manager, Financial Advisor, The Family Wealth Alliance, JK Lasser's, and Medical Economics.
