Wealth in family . . . a complex equation
Sadly, we have all heard the stories of an inheritance gone wrong.
In some instances, wealth received which is not earned can inhibit motivation, foster a false sense of entitlement and result in a general lack of purpose, while also simultaneously defeating one’s self esteem and personal identity.
On the other hand, with appropriate coaching, such instances can be turned around resulting in an inheritance which can serve as a generational platform for a productive and meaningful life of purpose and self-worth.
At Trustee Services Group, our unique focus and experience in successfully serving families in this regard allows us to help.
As we intimately experience, the issues which can arise around wealth can be multi-faceted. Although each professional associated with Trustee Services Group is gifted and experienced in their own way, we also understand there are many issues which may arise which fall outside our respective skill set.

Assistance Serving as Trustee or Estate Fiduciary
Perhaps you’ve accepted the privileged role of trustee or estate fiduciary for a friend or family member. As if life wasn’t busy enough, these responsibilities are added to your regular personal and professional obligations.
You now find yourself responsible for the proper oversight and administration of the trust assets, guided only by a trust document filled with “legalese.” In your new role, you are held to a legal “fiduciary” responsibility to administer the trust correctly, while balancing the commonly conflicting interests of the current and remainder trust beneficiaries.
Overwhelmed? We can help.
Trustee Services Group offers two ways to make your life easier while serving as individual trustee or estate fiduciary.
- Comprehensive Trust / Estate Accounting
- Consultative Fiduciary Support
When partnering with Trustee Services Group, you will experience the peace of mind and security which comes from being supported by experienced professionals whose sole focus is to help you successfully fulfill your privileged role as trustee.
Our desire . . . to help you successfully serve.
