An agent is therefore responsible for the proper management of all assets and other assets of the trust for the benefit of a beneficiary. An agent`s specific obligations are unique in the trust agreement and are determined by the type of fiduciary assets. For example, when a trust is made up of different real estate, it is the fiduciary`s duty to look after the land. Trustees are also required to manage and financially manage accounts within a trust when they are made up of other investments, such as . B shares on a broker account. A fiduciary company does not consider itself a corporation. Rather, it is a method of payment of property and a relationship between the agent and the beneficiary.

The choice of the type of trust to create, whether it is an irrevocable or revocable form for a position of trust worthy of life, depends on your goals. A fiduciary corporation provides an individual (the “Settlor”) with a mechanism to make property available to another person (the “agent”) for the benefit of a third party (the “beneficiary”), while maintaining some kind of control over the property.

Any number of agents may be chosen by Settlor and they must act unanimously, unless the trust agreement sets another. However, to ensure that there is no income allocation to Settlor, there should be an independent agent, such as a friend or business advisor.
