No, setting up a trust is very easy. After we explain our services and your options based on your specific needs, there are two requirements. First, you need to provide us with written instructions in the form of a trust agreement. This agreement needs to be drawn up by your attorney and will need to be signed by you (as creator of the trust) and by us (as the trustee). Secondly, we need to receive the money and/or securities that you plan on placing in the trust. And that is it!
A trust allows us to provide services above and beyond investments. For example, we can handle your personal financial management on a temporary or permanent basis. This service could be utilized if you plan extensive travel or become hospitalized. Also a trust allows you to name a beneficiary(ies) to receive the assets of your trust at the time of your death. It can also provide a source of income during your lifetime and beyond to a family member or someone you have named.
