 Recorded Webinar: Drafting Effective Testamentary Trusts


Date: Wednesday 7th October 2020

There are numerous benefits for both the testator and beneficiaries in the creation of a testamentary trust for the holding and distribution of estate assets and income after death. The establishment and ongoing arrangements for a trust need to be set up in the will and requires care in drafting to avoid problems down track. This session details the essential provisions of a testamentary trust arrangement, including:

  • Circumstances for including a testamentary trust in the will
  • Key clauses to include
  • Powers, appointment and removal of a trustee
  • Defining the class of beneficiaries and managing those who pre-decease the testator
  • Specifying assets to be held in the trust and their ongoing management
  • The elements of trusts for a special purpose eg disability or special need
  • Inclusion of “opt out” provisions
  • Administrative and legal requirements for setting up the trust
