Publisher's Summary

Family Trusts is a step-by-step guide for anyone involved in family trusts: trust creators, trustees, beneficiaries, and advisors. It will help families create and administer a culture that recognizes trusts as a gift of love.

Marrying the practical and emotional aspects of family wealth, this book provides a hands-on primer that focuses on fostering positive relationships, and structuring the trust appropriately for the situation and the people involved. It tackles difficult topics with frank and honest discussion, from the first beneficiary meeting to working with addictions, and more. Written by a team of experts in family wealth, this information is becoming increasingly crucial to the successful execution of a trust; you'll learn what type of person makes the best trustee, how to be an excellent beneficiary, and the technical aspects that help you build a better trust from the very beginning.  

There's been a staggering increase in trustee/beneficiary litigation and hostility, but that doesn't mean it's inevitable. Plenty of trusts are running smoothly, with positive experiences on all sides. This book shows you how to set up your trust to succeed from the start, with step-by-step guidance and expert insight.

More about the psychology of family trusts

This book was more about the psychological aspects of family trusts than a practical guide. I did not gain any benefit from this book whatsoever. I was not looking for the warm and fuzzies about trusts. Not helpful as a trustee or other party to a trust if you are seeking an actual guide to administer a trust especially.

vage and not to the point

it doesn't hit the tax advantages but focus on relationships around the trust. there are many other benefits once you know what type of trust sorts you.
