    • Serve as an in-house resource for trust administration questions - solving overdrafts, providing guidance on actions that may/may not be permissible under the trust’s terms, identifying solutions and work-arounds for various problems as they arise, identifying and applying appropriate state and/or federal law to given situations – generally coaching and supporting Client Advisory teams to ensure correct trust administration.
    • Review and edit Discretionary Distribution and Special Investment Requests for presentation to Committee as part of the ongoing trust administration.
    • Work with Client Advisory teams to support all steps in the termination process including the preparation of informal settlement documents (Receipts and Releases).
