Legacy Trust Services

Man talking to son

Providing for future generations

Do you want to plan for the financial well-being of your children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and beyond? A Legacy Trust -- also known as a dynasty trust -- is an irrevocable trust designed to help protect your wealth and provide benefits for multiple generations of your family while potentially minimizing the impact of state, estate, and transfer taxes. 

Crafting your Legacy Trust with flexibility

A Legacy Trust can be customized any way you choose. As the grantor, you can determine the extent of the trustee's responsibilities as well as how much control and access individual beneficiaries will have. You may also want to ensure your trust is flexible enough to meet changing circumstances over time. For example:

  • The state where your Legacy Trust is prepared and administered changes its laws. Your trust may include provisions that allow for a change in situs or place of administration of the trust to another state with more favorable laws.
  • One or more of the people you named in the trust to serve as trustee, or in an administrative or advisory capacity, are no longer able or willing to serve. The trust may allow for the removal or appointment of a trustee, trust advisor, investment advisor, or distribution committee member.
