Fiduciary solutions

Professional trustee services

Our fiduciary professionals will give you peace of mind as your assets are held in trust for the next generation, or managed and distributed in accordance to the provisions set forth in your trust documents. Best of all, you will spare your family the hard work and risks associated with administering your trust and the risks of serving in this capacity.

A trustee’s duties are dictated by the terms of the trust documents. Depending on the terms of the documents, a trustee’s primary responsibilities may include:
  • Interpreting your trust documents which may include sophisticated estate, gift, generation-skipping transfer and income tax provisions
  • Managing investments, including real estate and other assets
  • Communicating with beneficiaries regarding trust transactions
  • Filing of fiduciary income tax returns and other required tax returns
  • Exercising discretion over distributions to beneficiaries
  • Collaborating with the family’s other trusted advisors
