Trust & Estate Settlement Service

Problem: Few trustees or executors have the time, interest or experience to efficiently administer the settlement of a trust or estate.


Solution: Anodos helps trustees settle the trust twice as fast at half the cost. We do this by taking the “small stuff” off your desk so that you can focus on the “big stuff”. We specialize in this work. 


What's Included

  • TASK LIST: We develop and maintain a comprehensive and detailed task list of all activities of the settlement through robust project management software.
  • PROGRESS REVIEW: We hold bi-monthly phone calls (15-20 minutes) with the trustee to report on the progress and completion of the assigned tasks.
  • MONTHLY REPORTING: We provide a monthly written report to the settlement team (trustee, attorney, CPA) on the progress of the settlement with particular emphasis on the tasks that are “stuck” and need attention.
  • GOVERNANCE REPORTING: As governance experts we provide reports and documents for the administration which include, but are not limited to a (1) date of death balance sheet, (2) trustee compensation recommendation, (3) Investment Policy Statement for the trust assets, (4) detailed exhibits for the production of the 706 when needed and (5) production of the Annual Account for the trust beneficiaries.
  • ONLINE VAULT: Anodos maintains an online vault in which all critical documents, communications, exhibits, and other supporting work products are stored securely.
  • SERVICE PROVIDERS: Where the trustee does not currently have support from service providers – bookkeepers, appraisers, asset inventory managers, locksmiths, rubbish removal, brokerage services, et cetera – Anodos will find reputable local candidates for the trustee's consideration.
