A fiduciary is someone with legal responsibility to protect another’s financial interests. Everyday people become fiduciaries through a number of ways:
- As a court-appointed guardian or conservator
- As an executor for a loved one’s estate
- As a trustee for a trust you created
- As a successor trustee for someone else’s trust
- As an “attorney-in-fact” acting on another’s behalf through a power of attorney
Each of these roles comes with responsibilities. You must prepare financial reports and maintain detailed accountings. Most fiduciary roles also involve submitting this information to the court on a regular basis. You must comply with detailed requirements in preparing and filing the right documentation.
