Our History

NHTrust’s roots began initially as divisions of three 150-year old strong, stable, mutual community banks. Thanks to the strengths and capital backing of our sister banks, Meredith Village Savings Bank, Merrimack County Savings Bank and Savings Bank of Walpole, NHTrust is even better able to offer clients depth and experience in financial advisory* and trust services throughout the state of New Hampshire.

MillRiver Wealth Management joined sister banks, Merrimack County Savings Bank and Meredith Village Savings Bank as the third subsidiary of New Hampshire Mutual Bancorp on April 1, 2015. MillRiver combined the financial advisory divisions of the Merrimack and MVSB and expanded the delivery of the Merrimack’s proprietary investment management and trust services to MVSB. Savings Bank of Walpole joined the organization in July of 2019.

NHTrust was formed in January 2020 when SBW (Savings Bank of Walpole) Wealth Management and The New Hampshire Trust Company merged with MillRiver Wealth Management and the combined entity changed its legal name to New Hampshire Trust.

The original New Hampshire Trust Company, initially chartered in June of 2002, had been a state-chartered trust and investment management firm, serving individual investors, corporations and non-profits. They were unique among fiduciary and investment advisors for their combination of strategic partners which include highly successful, locally focused independent trust specialists, as well as a larger team of expert New Hampshire-based trust and wealth management professionals.

NHTrust optimizes the strengths of each founding organization, serving customers with leading-edge advice, enhanced technology, as well as a continued focus on local, personal service in communities throughout the state. The organizations previously enjoyed similar corporate structures and cultures, with complementary market areas. This new affiliation allows NHTrust to enhance the services that were already being provided to customers, staff and individual communities.
