130 YEARS OF INNOVATION…ONE CLIENT AT A TIME.
Bryn Mawr Trust is a premier financial services company providing banking, wealth management, and insurance.
BMT President and CEO, Frank Leto
The year Bryn Mawr Trust was formed, just steps from the exact spot its Bryn Mawr headquarters stands today; there were only 38 stars on the American flag, the Wall Street Journal was about to publish its first issue, and Philadelphia’s iconic City Hall had yet to be built. Along came Bryn Mawr Trust (BMT), helping clients with their financial needs one client at a time. By the end of that first year, BMT counted nearly a third of all households in Bryn Mawr among its depositors.
BMT is a premier financial services company that provides banking, wealth management, and insurance services to individuals and families, corporations, small businesses, nonprofits, and institutional clients. We provide value to our customers by offering solutions and advice – not products – for their important and sometimes stressful financial challenges, and by delivering those customized solutions with personalized service, recognizing everyone’s financial needs are as unique as the solutions we provide.
In our history, BMT has met and successfully mastered many challenges: regulation and deregulation; inflation, depression, and recession; wars and natural disasters; cultural changes and social evolutions. Through it all, Bryn Mawr Trust has evolved with the needs of generations who have called the Philadelphia region their home.

Today, we continue to use emerging technologies to bring financial services and peace-of-mind to more people, industries and communities, including those who are underserved, without forgetting the importance of face-to-face interaction and personal service.
We are proud of our long history of building lasting relationships with our clients: whether it’s financing buildings that change Philadelphia’s skyline or adding thousands of small businesses to the fabric of our communities; financing dream homes or helping people realize their dream of owning their first home; assessing risks and protecting the things that matter most to businesses, nonprofits and families; administering trusts and endowments or helping people plan, build and transfer wealth.
We are proud of the positive impact our banking, wealth management, and insurance solutions have had on countless people throughout the Philadelphia region; we look forward with optimism to the decades ahead, and to continuing to help and serve.
BMT is in our second century of driving the economic success in our region, helping entrepreneurs build and innovate for the needs of tomorrow’s Philadelphia. While our roots are grounded in a much simpler time, we are always mindful of the need to evolve to meet the challenges of the future. Helping our clients meet today’s challenges and prepare for tomorrow is what we have always been about. That is why we remain the trusted choice today… and tomorrow.
