Benefits of a Private Family Trust Company


The purpose of a private family trust company (“PFTC”) is to serve as a corporate trustee for family trusts. The name denotes private because it cannot provide trustee fiduciary services to the public; it may only act as trustee for those family members (or affiliated family entities) of the family creating the PFTC. This article lays out the several benefits a PFTC may provide to families with multi-generational wealth.
