What Is a Trust Administrator or Corporate Trustee?

A trust refers to a legally binding agreement where a party transfers their assets to another party, a trustee. The trustee then manages, protects, and distributes those assets according to that agreement. This is called trust administration.


Midland Trust Company can serve as your corporate trustee to administer a variety of trust services with skill, discretion, and compassion.

Trust Services FAQs

Although it may seem to make sense to leave your trust in the hands of a family member or loved one, this can cause personal and relational strain and stress. Most people do not have the expertise, time, or desire to manage a trust at the highest level. The role of trustee should not be taken lightly given the complex responsibilities involved. At Midland Trust Company, we remain unbiased and objective and have the proper skills, training, knowledge, and resources available to serve as trustee.

Not necessarily, but trusts aren’t only for wealthy or intricate estates. If you have a plan as to how and when your assets are distributed after you die and want to ensure it happens, you may consider establishing a trust. If you want to protect your assets, reduce taxes, avoid probate, or provide a vehicle for charitable gifting, a trust may make sense.

There are several different types of trusts, so the trust agreement will determine what you’re entitled to, who has authority to withdraw, and any other rules or provisions surrounding distributions. A common example includes age provisions when assets are received at specific ages. Please note that distributing funds or assets from a trust is not the same as taking money out of a bank account.
