ESOP Trustees Advisors
Stay In Compliance and avoid Litigation by Engaging A Reliable Independent * Institutional Trustee
ERISA, the major federal law that governs retirement and benefits, mandates that an employee share ownership plan must be managed by a specially-appointed trustee. For Trustees, the probate court requires all trusts have a knowledgeable trustee. The trustee is required to manage the finances of the ESOP for the benefit of employees (as beneficiaries) or the family beneficiaries, and failure to do so, such as excessive compensation and mismanagement, can give those beneficiaries grounds to take legal action against the trustee.
When the trustee charged with fiduciary duty is a senior officer at the company, such as the president or a member of the board of directors, such action can have particularly unpleasant consequences relating to personal liability. In order to avoid the possibility of this occurring, businesses are strongly recommended to invite an independent trustee who knows how to help company management with complex issues for maximum benefit for all participants.
Our expert trustees listed on our website all have extensive knowledge and experience in governance and administration, and have received well-earned recommendations from their clients.
Our Trustees and other categories represent the best advisors we could find. Our Trustee Advisors have been checked and vetted to assure business owners and their advisors that the person they are looking at is competent, trustworthy and respected in the Trustee Community. There are hundreds of Advisors out there offering Trustee related advice and services, but we have invited only the few who REALLY do many Trustees to be placed on this site. As you look at the maps, you will see different colors or levels of pins on the page. Those pins in Blue or Red have financially participated in this website to assure the reader that they are committed to Trustees, are continually educated themselves to keep up with the ever changing laws and practices, and want you to know they are equally committed to helping you with your Family or company issues. The Blue and Red pins also represent they have exposed themselves to the condition of having their references checked and shared with you. The staff at Trustee Marketplace check the references by calling and interviewing them, and then asking them to rate the participant on a scale of 1-5, 5 being the highest rating. Knowing more about an advisor before you select them will help reduce, but not eliminate the risks of hiring a professional Trustee Advisor. Our Advisors and Users agree to our terms and conditions by using our family of websites.
