Retiring as a Trustee and need help?

If you are already acting as a Trustee on an existing Trust and no longer wish to have this role, we can assist you in retiring as a Trustee and either appointing us in your place or we can assist in finding a suitable replacement.


Examples where someone may need to retire as Trustee:

  • If you are a professional such as an Accountant of Financial Adviser and there may be a conflict of interest if you continue to act as Trustee.
  • You no longer wish to have the responsibility of being Trustee.
  • There is no longer a relationship with the client and/or their family.
  • The client has moved abroad and you no longer understand the tax and legal implications of being a Trustee.

We can produce all of the necessary legal paperwork and liaise with all family members involved in retiring the existing Trustees and appoint new ones.

If a professional, Corporate Trustee is required, Fortress can act as Trustees both in the UK and for International Trusts.
