Corporate Trustee Services Board
Pursuant to provisions 20 and 21 of the Trustee Companies Act 1967, the Board of Trustees Executors has delegated some of its supervisory function of its corporate customers to a ‘local’ Board of Directors.
The Local Board is comprised of non-executive Directors who do not sit on Trustees Executors’ Board. This allows the local board to focus on Trustees Executors’ compliance with its licensed supervisor obligations.
