Why use a professional trustee service?

The role of a trustee comes with responsibilities and personal liability. Many people do not want to burden their family and friends. Or, the Settlor of a trust may just want to keep their financial arrangements confidential.

A professional trustee is a corporate entity that is regulated to carry out trustee duties on behalf of the Settlor.
