There have a been a handful of court cases against TOLI trustees and fiduciaries that provide guidance for what you should and should not do when managing an asset like life insurance. The cases provide some bright lines to follow for processes and procedures, and just as important, provide insight to some key traps in TOLI trust management. This session will review these cases and provide clear direction with well defined “key lessons” from each lawsuit. The course will include a Handbook that can be used as a guide going forward. The TOLI trustee or even a fiduciary will learn a great deal from this course.
