Selection and Supervision of Trustees

Bender Brothers & Co. specialises in the selection and supervision of trustees, particularly with respect to offshore arrangements.  The firm's expertise has evolved over the years in the context of a multi-generational single family office. 

A Protector has a duty to oversee the good governance of a fiduciary arrangement on behalf of the beneficiaries. Much like a constitutional monarch, he would have the power to replace trustees under extreme circumstances, such as in cases of failing to act in good faith or to provide a service to a reasonable professional standard.  Such oversight removes the need for expensive litigation and provides considerable reassurance for a settlor disposing legal ownership of personal assets.
