Portrait of Charles W. Ranson

CHARLES W. RANSON HAS 40 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE in corporate fiduciary services focused on trust, estates, and private banking began in 1990 at Bank of America. In 1991, Ranson was recruited to join Chase Manhattan Private Bank in Palm Beach, Florida, where he later became President and CEO of the Florida subsidiary of Chase Manhattan Bank N. A. (Now JP Morgan Chase). Ranson developed new clients and managed the relationship team, providing clients fiduciary, investment advisory, credit, and derivative services. As President and CEO of Chase Manhattan Private Bank, Florida, N.A., Ranson managed the fiduciary, investment advisory, and credit & derivatives service teams throughout the Southeast U.S., working with some of the wealthiest beneficiaries and investors in the country. He applied his fiduciary service experience in trust, estate, and private banking at the US Trust and Atlantic Trust before founding Integritas Advisors, an SEC-registered investment advisory firm. His experience as Founding Chair & Managing Director of Tiger 21 Florida provided him with a unique perspective on the relationship entrepreneurs and ultra high net worth investors have with trust, and estate planning & wealth advisors and the challenges they face in intergenerational wealth transfer.

Since 2011, Ranson has provided litigation consulting and trust expert witness services to defense and plaintiff counsel, focusing on trust and estate litigation disputes. Ranson has opined in written reports and testified in deposition and at trial on issues of breach of fiduciary duty, and breach of the standard of care for corporate and individual trustees, based on the facts and circumstances of the case. Ranson has accepted case assignments involving claims of breach of duty of impartiality, trustee’s failure to account, trustee’s failure to diversify, trustee’s failure to administer trust based on the terms and purpose of the trust, and disputes between trustees and beneficiaries as to what constitutes reasonable compensation for a trustee under the circumstances.
