What is Trust Administration?
Trust administration is a crucial process that occurs after the passing of a loved one who had established a trust as part of their estate planning. A trust is a legal arrangement that allows an individual, referred to as the grantor or settlor, to transfer assets to a trustee who holds and manages these assets for the benefit of designated beneficiaries. Trust administration involves the diligent execution of the grantor's intentions as outlined in the trust document.
The Role of a Trustee
As your trusted partner in trust administration, we guide trustees through their responsibilities with diligence and sensitivity. A trustee's primary duty is to manage the trust assets prudently and in accordance with the trust's terms, ensuring that beneficiaries receive their rightful distributions. This often includes investing assets wisely, paying any applicable taxes, and making appropriate decisions regarding asset distribution to beneficiaries.
