This bank touts itself as being wealth management experts and providing account analysis and advisement to help clients meet their financial goals. In fact, at the Seattle branch, the opposite occurs; no analysis or advising is provided, investment accounts are managed very passively without any adjustment to follow market trends, and customers' stated financial needs and goals are ignored. One only finds this out after years of lackluster performance, with the investment dept. director unable to respond to concerns, year after year. They do not track individual accounts on even an annual basis, so they have no idea what's going on in each account!  There is no oversight of the investment dept., nor any accountability to higher-ups. The trust management specialists are poorly informed about trust law (including those who are trust lawyers!), and commit errors and illegalities due to ignorance. The trust staff seem to chronically be functioning in an emergency, panic mode, struggling to keep up with workloads and the steady exodus of dissatisfied clients. This was the situation when the Seattle branch was a small, local bank, and deteriorated after being acquired by the Harris, then BMO. Just when you think it can't get any worse, it does.
