Trustee versus trustee - a critical distinction in supporting good joint decision-making
The International Family Offices Journal
Vol. 6 - Iss. 4 pp. 52–54
James E Hughes Jr and Vaughan Scott, in "Trustee versus trustee - a critical distinction in supporting good joint decision making", elaborate on the duties of trustees. They point out that a Trustee, with an upper case T, serves the greater good of families holistically, universally and unwaveringly and takes different roles such as serving on the board of directors of companies or being a responsible shareholder. They analyse each of the duties of trustees pointing out that, while the legislation may change from country to country, the general meaning of such duties is fairly universal.
