Jill Knight Nalty
A Southwest Louisiana native, Jill Knight Nalty moved to New Orleans 35 years ago and began her career in the financial sector, working with Hibernia National Bank and First Commerce Corporation, before retiring to focus on raising children and volunteering in the community. She returned to the financial sector in 2019, and after a recent promotion from Business Development Officer, she now serves as New Orleans Market President of Argent Trust Company. At Argent, Jill leads her team as they provide individuals, families, businesses and institutions with a broad range of wealth management services.
Jill emphasizes an ability to listen in any relationship as integral to its success.
“As professionals who listen first, we are able to earn the trust of our clients and confidently recommend the best course of action for them,” she says.
Jill’s style of leadership was highly influenced by the honorable servitude displayed by her father, a longtime district judge.
“Being a true fiduciary means I am honor bound to put my client’s best interests first,” says Jill. “After all, a good trustee is a good servant.”
Jill believes in the importance of women taking control of their own financial wellness and serves that passion as a member of Argent’s focus group on Women | Wealth | Wellness. Passionate also about community activism, Jill serves on the board of Baptist Community Ministries and is a recent graduate of the 2021 CABL Leadership Louisiana class. Argent believes in community support by supporting several non-profits including Children’s Hospital, KID smART, and Louisiana Children’s Museum.
