How Do You Choose a Good Trustee?

In common law countries, a very large proportion of wealth will be held in trusts by the third generation. As such, finding and retaining good trustees will be increasingly important. Yet, somehow, family trusts often preserve a family’s financial assets, yet fail to preserve either family or trust. Hartley Goldstone, a trained lawyer and an experienced consultant to trusts and trustees, talks about how families can source great trustees and how trustees can ensure they fulfill their important responsibilities. He also shares the results of his substantial research and interviews with beneficiaries and trustees on what works most effectively and does the most good.
