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.
