Wrigleys Trustees Limited is a specialist UK registered trust corporation

Trusteeships can be intricate, time consuming or simply unfamiliar to many people newly appointed as a trustee.

The benefits of a 'professional trustee'

A professional trustee can be a helpful alternative to appointing family members on their own. Benefits to appointing a professional trustee include:

  • Reducing the burden on family trustees;

  • Reducing the risk of a conflict of interest between trustees;

  • Overcoming any disruptions caused by the retirement or absence of an individual solicitor if they are the professional trustee;

  • Assisting with difficult or controversial decisions; and

  • Assisting with trustee processes and regulatory requirements (such as FATCA obligations (Foreign Accounts Tax Compliance Act).

Please see our article on The benefits to families of appointing a corporate trustee explaining the benefits of having a professional trustee.

'My overall impression of the firm is that they recruit and retain only the highest calibre of solicitors, with all individuals seemingly striving for excellence in all that they do’
