After a year of interviewing several trustees, the two beneficiaries named me as independent professional trustee, given my approach, depth and sensitivity to complex fiduciary issues. We worked with the beneficiaries and their counsel to modernize their trusts, while maintaining the original intent of the settlor.

At Cerity Partners, our dedicated Family Office team has helped many families with their trustee and fiduciary needs. For more information on our Fiduciary and Trustee service, please contact your Cerity Partners advisor.
