Estate & Trusts
Estate planning can be a fairly simple process in many cases. However, your financial situation, family dynamics and/or charitable preferences may require considerably more thought and involve a team of experts. We’ll be more than happy to work with your attorney, accountant and other advisors to design a plan that smoothly transfers your estate in accordance with your wishes. As executor of your estate, we can effectively administer your estate in strict accordance with the terms of your will. Additionally, as a corporate trustee of your trust agreement, we will provide impartial, professional administration of the trust assets for the benefit of each and every trust beneficiary.
A trust is a legal document (trust agreement) created by a person (grantor) that gives a person (trustee) the power to control certain assets listed in the trust agreement for the benefit of a person (beneficiary). There are essentially two types of trusts, revocable and irrevocable.
