Trustee

Agent of a bond issuer who handles the administrative aspects of a loan and ensures that the borrower complies with the terms of the bond indenture.

Trustee

1. The individual or company who manages assets in a trust on behalf of the beneficiary.

2. More generally, any individual or company who manages assets on behalf of another. For example, a bank may hire a trustee to distribute funds from a loan to the borrower.

In both cases, the trustee has a fiduciary responsibility to act on behalf of the beneficiary or client, rather than in his/her own interests.

trustee

An appointed person or institution that manages assets for the benefit of someone else. Trustees are most often trust corporations or trust departments of commercial banks that manage the assets for a fee based on a percentage of the size of the trust (usually under 1%). A trust may be very restrictive or it may allow the trustee wide discretion, depending upon the grantor's wishes.

A trustee is a person or institution appointed to manage assets for someone else's benefit.

For example, a trustee may be responsible for money you have transferred to a trust, or money in certain retirement accounts.

Trustees are entitled to collect a fee for their work, often a percentage of the value of the amount in trust. In turn, they are responsible for managing the assets in the best interests of the beneficiary of the trust. That's known as fiduciary responsibility.
