Administration Compliance Support
Trust law, examiner’s guidelines and written policies remind us of an inherent duty and responsibility to administer accounts solely in the interest of beneficiaries, consistent with a high standard of fiduciary conduct represented by an uncompromising duty of loyalty and a process void of conflicts of interest.
To ensure proper and efficient administration requires adoption of appropriate policies and procedures that embodies systems, processes and controls to monitor, measure and manage risks inherent in adhering to laws, regulations, policies and trust provisions along with sound business principles.
Breadth and depth of such policies and procedures vary by trust organization dependent upon sets of variables—account type, asset size, administrative complexity and other factors. But, constant, among those variables, is the task of maintaining regulatory compliance. An important element in achieving those standards include systems that ensure “good information”—without good information decision makers cannot make “good decisions”.
Consequently, efficient administration of information and data in the form of both electronic and paper filings must be given important attention. FiPar offers full support—on-site and virtual; one-off and on retainer—in dealing with administrative compliance requirements and associated challenges.
