First Community Trust Joins the AMC Family of Companies

DES MOINES, IA – Affiliates Management Company (AMC), the holding company for the Iowa Credit Union League (ICUL), today announces that First Community Trust, N.A. (FCT), has officially joined the AMC family of companies. The acquisition of FCT by AMC was finalized on April 30, 2019, following review and regulatory approval of the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC).

FCT is a nationally chartered trust company that delivers trust, investment, retirement and estate planning services to Iowa credit unions, their members and others in the communities served. FCT’s headquarters will remain in Dubuque, Iowa. The company’s executive leadership and all staff will remain in place. 

“The acquisition of First Community Trust is designed to benefit Iowa’s credit unions and our 1.3 million members,” said Murray Williams, CEO of AMC and ICUL. “FCT is a tremendous cultural fit and credit union partner. We are optimistic that FCT will assist us in providing greater value to the credit union community by bringing a trusted partner to a significant segment of our membership – those planning for their financial future and retirement.”

AMC’s family of companies today serve consumers and businesses nationally in the areas of cybersecurity training, diversity and inclusion initiatives, regulatory compliance and legislative affairs. The addition of FCT’s services to AMC will support the company’s mission to improve the financial lives of consumers.

“FCT has historically been a partner to credit unions and was originally formed to provide trust and investment services to credit unions and others in the communities we serve. We currently partner with several credit unions in eastern Iowa today to offer these needed services,” said Chip Murray, CEO of FCT. “We are excited for this opportunity to grow and expand our services across Iowa with the support of AMC, helping more consumers plan for the future.”
