“How much should a trustee be paid?” Few trustees or their professional advisors can provide a thoughtful or comprehensive response to this question. Not surprisingly, many beneficiaries and their professional advisors frequently object to whatever the answer may be. Disagreements about the trustee’s compensation are exacerbated during periods of heightened financial uncertainty. This presentation seeks to provide a road map for both trustees and beneficiaries, of how to answer the ubiquitous question, “How much should a trustee be paid?”.
