Our Service As Corporate Trustee

Baird Trust can serve as corporate trustee in a variety of trust arrangements. While an individual trustee may be more familiar with family dynamics and the intent behind the trust, relying on a corporate trustee has significant advantages:

  • Professional trust administration and investment experience
  • Objective decision-making based on the terms of the trust and applicable trust law
  • Service that won’t be interrupted by disability or death, as can be the case with individual trustees
  • Trust professionals experienced in helping beneficiaries understand how their trusts affect them
