“Trust protectors” and “trust advisers” are new and rapidly growing concepts in trust planning. Trust protectors stand in the shoes of the trust settlor, ensuring that his or her wishes are fulfilled. They are appointed by the settlor and are independent of trustees, potentially wielding wide powers over the trust and the trustee’s decisions. Among these powers are to add or remove beneficiaries, direct distributions, veto investments, and remove trustees.

“Trust protectors” and “trust advisers” are new and rapidly growing concepts in trust planning. Trust protectors stand in the shoes of the trust settlor, ensuring that his or her wishes are fulfilled. They are appointed by the settlor and are independent of trustees, potentially wielding wide powers over the trust and the trustee’s decisions. Among these powers are to add or remove beneficiaries, direct distributions, veto investments, and remove trustees.  The idea is the trust protector will have a global vision of the settlor’s wishes, the duties and conduct of the trustee, and the needs of the beneficiary. But these innovations come with certain administrative inefficiencies, additional costs, and complicated of drafting traps for estate and trust practitioners. This program will provide you with a practical guide to planning with and drafting the duties of trust protectors and trust advisers for client trusts.
