Naming a trustee the key to setting up a trust


If you are planning to leave property or other assets to heirs by using a trust, one of the most important considerations is deciding who will run the trust once you are gone.

The person you chose -- your fiduciary -- is responsible for managing the assets in the trust and making distributions to your loved ones in line with your wishes.

The trustee you name must be willing to carry out your wishes no matter his or her personal feelings about them.
