Few trust documents provide any guidance about trustee compensation other than to say it shall be “a reasonable amount”. Predictably, few trustees, beneficiaries or professional advisors agree on what a “reasonable amount” is. Attached is a short video that presents the factors that should be considered when a trustee establishes the level of compensation that they will pay themselves. Among the services that Anodos provides are (1) trustee compensation studies, (2) investment performance evaluations, and (3) expert testimony on these and other fiduciary governance matters in court proceedings.
