Our Companies


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

NHTrust 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. NHTrust 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 of 2020 when SBW (Savings Bank of Walpole) Wealth Management and The New Hampshire Trust Company merged into NHTrust.

The 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 nonprofits. 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.

Our history

In January of 2013, the formal alliance of Merrimack County Savings Bank and Meredith Village Savings Bank as partners in the newly formed holding company, New Hampshire Mutual Bancorp, was finalized – creating the first multi-bank mutual holding company in the state. In 2018, Savings Bank of Walpole joined the organization.

Each affiliate bank is committed to retaining its individual name, identity, community commitment and state charter, and each bank’s board of directors and leadership team oversees the operations of their respective banks. They are also committed to maintaining each bank’s status as an independent community bank with a mutual form of ownership.

A mutual holding company has no stockholders, which allows it to invest its profits more conservatively for long-term sustainability and sound growth. In addition, decision-making can be based on the longer-term benefits to the community, customers, and employees, as opposed to the immediate needs of stockholders and the market.

The banks’ alliance under a mutual holding company enhances each bank’s ability to better serve its customers and communities and to maintain each bank’s status as a sound, stable, independent institution as the banking industry faces new challenges in an era of rapidly changing technology and regulation. Furthermore, the affiliate banks are in a position to optimize the strengths and competitive advantages of each organization while growing market share and supporting the community in their distinctive markets.

With combined resources, each affiliate is better positioned to serve its customers with significantly greater loan capacity and leading-edge products and services while maintaining the high level of customer service and community commitment you’ve grown to expect from us.
