Support for individual trustees
When you appoint someone to serve as a trustee, it’s likely because you have full confidence in their personal integrity. But you’re also asking them to take on significant fiduciary, management and administrative responsibility.

- Provide comprehensive fiduciary investment capabilities and manage trust assets
- Help balance competing interests of beneficiaries
- Make distributions to beneficiaries
- Maintain the records required to report on principal, income and performance
