Woman peeking through blinds. A trustee is responsible for administering a trust for the benefit of the beneficiary or beneficiaries. Unless the beneficiary is also a trustee, he or she will not have direct access to information regarding the investments, debts, liabilities, expenses, receipts and other financial arrangements of the trust. Without a mechanism for learning this information, the beneficiary might worry that assets will run out, the trustee might misuse funds, or another problem will occur. Therefore, Missouri law, and the law of those states that have adopted similar provisions from the Uniform Trust Code (UTC), provides that a trustee must provide specific information and an annual report to certain beneficiaries so their interests may be protected.

Commonly, the investment advisor cannot serve as trustee even if naming an individual is desirable.

I’m a professional.” The screen then cuts to the parking attendant and his buddy zooming off in the Ferrari as Ferris and the group go on their way.
