A Guide to Ethics in Fiduciary and Trust Activities


Your client doesn’t want to trust his house keys to someone he doesn’t trust; he won’t want to trust his trust assets, either. This Guide to Ethics presents scenarios identifying ethical breaches, and provides the trustee with tools should he discover a breach.

  • Explain trustee liability in the event of a breach of trust and remedy options
  • Describe tools provided under the Uniform Trust Code (UTC) that trustees can use to manage fiduciary risk
  • Explain the differences between an agency and a fiduciary relationship
