Course Description

Few trustees have a good answer to the question “How much should I be paid”. Their professional advisors often disagree. Some say an hourly rate, some say a percent of the trust assets, and others say a flat retainer. Due to this general lack of agreement, few can provide a thoughtful or comprehensive explanation of why they are getting paid what they are. Not surprisingly, many beneficiaries and their professional advisors frequently object to whatever the answer may be. Disagreements about the trustee’s compensation are exacerbated during periods of heightened financial uncertainty. This Online CPE Webinar seeks to provide a road map for both trustees and beneficiaries, of how to answer the ubiquitous question, “How much should a trustee be paid?” 

This online CPE webinar answers the following questions:

  • Should I charge an hourly rate and if so in what amount?
  • Should I charge a percentage of the trust portfolio as the corporate trustees do?
  • If I delegate investment duties to a third party, should my fee go down?
  • Can I charge more if I serve a particularly “high demand” beneficiary?
  • How do I determine what the “custom in the community” is?
  • Is there any statutory guidance on what my fee should be?
