Do you need a collaborative trust team?

Our Team-Based Approach

Using the directed trust framework, professional advisors are named, often by the family or beneficiaries, to handle specific duties and responsibilities based on that individual’s specialty. The resulting team of experts then works together to provide the beneficiary with care and expertise, ensuring optimal management and administration of the trust or estate.
