California Trust Co. 's family trustee advisory helps Trustees to perform their duties in compliance with regulations and in compliance with the Trust document.
Being a family trustee or conservator is a challenge. One of the most difficult tasks for a family trustee or conservator is making objective decisions, because being a family member means people often come with predetermined feelings about other family members. A good family trustee or conservator should be able to be objective, keep good records, spend money prudently, annually report to the beneficiaries the trust asset performance and prepare tax information for your CPA. As a conservator caring for an incapacitated adult or
child means providing for their care and caring for their estate, both demanding tasks. The most challenging task for most Family Trustees or Conservators is prudent wealth management of trust assets in keeping with the Trust and the State Probate Code.
We can help your trustee or conservator with those duties.
