We are thrilled to announce our partnership with Concentra Trust, part of Equitable Bank (EQB) Bank, today! This new collaboration will bring accessible and affordable estate trust services to over 4M Canadian credit union members! This allows ClearEstate to offer an actual modern-day version of the traditional trust office which was historically only available to the super-rich.

By leveraging modern technology and excellent customer service, Concentra Trust believes that ClearEstate will bring accessible and affordable estate trust services to Canadian credit unions and their members.
