Benefits of Incorporating Trusts as an Effective Estate Tool the Topic of BOK Financial Presentation at T3 Conference

When it comes to retaining and attracting additional trust revenue, it’s all about asking the right questions. Rosemary Hueser, senior vice president of BOK Financial Advisor Trust Services, said that “learning to ask the right questions of your clients and prospects is key to growing trust revenue.” 

Hueser will outline the benefits of incorporating trusts as an effective estate planning tool in her presentation on Thursday at 2:20pm Pacific Time in Mont-Royal Ballroom I at the Technology Tools for Today (T3) Conference happening in Las Vegas this week. Attendees will gain a better understanding of the fiduciary responsibility and duties of trustees along with the key aspects of a trust document to be familiar with. Starting with the right questions is key to helping your firm retain and attract multi-generational clients.

When it comes to attracting new trust clients, Hueser recommends asking:

  • Are you the beneficiary or co-trustee of an existing trust?
  • Are you satisfied with your current trustee’s service, fees and/or investment performance?
  • Are you interested in me managing the trust assets?

And if your goal is to retain client revenue, consider asking:

  • Do you currently have a will and/or living trust?
  • Would you be interested in naming a Successor Corporate Trustee that will allow me to continue to manage the trust assets should you die or become incapacitated?

“Having a corporate trustee named in the trust document and establishing relationships with multiple generations in the family ahead of the death of the grantor is crucial to the continuing relationship,” Hueser said.
