Stephanie Hood’s Comment on Fiduciary Responsibility

“I take to heart the great responsibility that comes with being the Chief Financial Officer of Hemenway Trust Company. Clients place their financial well-being in our hands, as their trustee and advisor. Clients need to sleep well at night, knowing that we perform our fiduciary duties with care and a high sense of duty. As an entity, we have instituted robust controls and checks and balances, ensuring accuracy and dependability. Along with our Compliance Director, I oversee our compliance with regulators and our audits by our independent accounting firm. My background and training in finance and operations have given me the skills to be part of the team that has created such a well-regarded company. I worry about the details so our clients don’t have to.”
