Should you Consider a Family Pot Trust?
However, when setting up a Family Pot Trust for use of the family after the parents pass away it is important to consider who your trustee will be. If you appoint a trustee that has sprinkling power to distribute assets out of the estate as they see fit, this gives a substantial amount of power to the trustee. In effect, you will be asking the trustee to substitute their judgment for your own after you pass away. Therefore, seriously consider the trustee if you decide to set up a Family Pot Trust.
