Investing With Sabal Trust

Ask us About Our

Investment Strategy Group & Portfolio Management Team

Sabal Trust focuses on protecting and preserving family legacies. Part of that effort involves maintaining control over the investment decision-making process. As a result, we do not outsource the investment decision-making activity. Our in-house Investment Strategy Group is responsible for developing the investment strategies used by our firm’s portfolio managers to benefit our clients and their families. This team is staffed with experienced research analysts who provide coverage of economic sectors, industries and individual companies within the stock and bond universes where we invest.
