Event Details


The importance of trustee and beneficiary training
This day and a half workshop will provide attendees a deeper understanding of the core trustee duties, skills and traits required to manage the personal demands and obligations of trusteeship. For grantors, choosing a trustee means selecting an individual or organization that has the expertise and emotional skills to carry out his or wishes. For beneficiaries, being part of trust means knowing the rights, roles and responsibilities of the beneficiary and the trustee and committing to a strong working relationship. Lastly, for trustees, accepting this duty demonstrates a willingness to serve as a day to day administrator and long-term advisor.

Attendees of this workshop will learn:
- The duties of a trustee
- The importance of communication between trustees and beneficiaries
- The difference between mandatory and discretionary trusts
- The evolution of fiduciary standards on trust assets
