    A trustee is responsible for managing the assets in a trust.

  • If I am a Trustee, can I hand over my responsibilities?
    Yes. Sometimes a trustee can no longer do the job of a trustee. This could be because of age, illness or moving interstate or overseas. It might also be that a trustee doesn’t want to be a trustee anymore, or has argued or disagreed with the beneficiaries. In these cases, it may be best that a new trustee takes over.
