Trusts: protection for trustees - thoughts and experiences in practice

There is a reason why "trusts" and "trustees" are so named. At its most basic, a trustee owes a higher duty of care to look after someone else’s assets (often very valuable, complicated or difficult) for one or more other people (sometimes complicated and/or difficult), than he/she would do if they were his/her own.

In this article (which was first published in Private Client Business, a Thomson Reuters publication P.C.B. 2021,1. 11-17) Paul Whitehead shares his thoughts, experiences and some useful pointers when considering these issues, drawn primarily from his own practical experience.
