WE Trust Company
Cherie Ware founded Ware & Associates in 1997, performing primarily estate execution services. In 2002, Amy Egtvet joined, and in 2006 the two women formalized their partnership and became Ware, Egtvet & Associates, LLC.
Over time, the company’s services expanded, and Ware Egtvet was named in their client’s estate planning documents as Executor, Attorney-In-Fact, and Trustee. They also began to offer personal assistance as a financial advocate and a family officer manager.
In 2016, the company established WE Trust Company, incorporated in the State of Washington, and went through a rigorous process and earned Trust Powers by the State of Washington Department of Financial Institutions. Since the beginning of 2017, the company conducts its daily business as WE Trust Company.
In addition to growing our services and client base, we have also added to the WE Trust Team. Learn more about our dedicated team of professionals below.
