Practical Trusteeship 2020 – How to sell the value of a professional trustee - 11 August 2020 (On Demand)


The new Trusts Act 2019 makes the duties and responsibilities of professional trustees much more transparent. That transparency increases trustee accountability which in turn increases professional risk.

For many professional trustees, appointments were historically accepted without formal terms of engagement being put in place.

As a result, clients have often mistakenly perceived professional trustee services as part of the core advisory client relationship.

Professional trustee services are not the same as professional advisory services. They have significantly different obligations and risks.

So with new trust law just around the corner, many professionals are asking themselves:

  • How do I articulate the value of a professional trustee to clients?
  • Should I separate the professional trustee and advisory relationships?
  • How should I approach charging for professional trustee services?
  • How do I communicate that things need to change?

These are important questions to answer, particularly when professional trustees are held to a higher standard of care.
For those professionals serious about delivering professional trustee services in the future, the Trusts Act 2019 gives much needed leverage to have the required conversations.

In this webinar, Lindsay Pope will share ideas and perspectives to practically help professionals articulate the value of the professional trustee role.

With over 40 years professional trusteeship under his belt, Lindsay’s well placed to guide others on the conversations that need to take place.

This will be a non-technical webinar, specifically focused on ways to think about and respond to what is continuing to become an increasingly challenging professional trustee environment.
