Trustee's Duty to Account and Disclose

Aired: Thursday, April 5, 2018


2.5 CTFA, 2.5 CISP, 2.5 CRSP

The open disclosure of information to beneficiaries is one of the fundamental duties of a trustee, and is also typically viewed as an indicia of a trustee acting in good faith. The trustee's duty to disclose at common law is rarely subject to controversy, but to whom the duty is owed is a source of regular uncertainty and ongoing litigation. There also are new developing rules on the ability of a trust settlor to override the common law duty and create a "silent trust." This session will explore a number of areas in-depth.

Discussion Highlights:

  • The duty to disclose information and the duty to account
  • Disclosure as a tool to manage risk
  • To whom the duty applies
  • Power of the settlor to alter the duty and statutory authorization to do so
  • Operation of silent trusts and their danger
