Impartiality - your beneficiaries will also benefit from our independent position as we shall act impartially and fairly to all beneficiaries. This safeguards their individual interests in the trust.
Protection for your beneficiaries - with the appointment of a Protector as a watchdog and advisor to the trustee, there is clear protection of your beneficiaries' interest.
