I wondered how other members would handle this situation?
Beneficiary is currently 18 and has been left c£35k in a Will on attaining 21. The executor does not wish to act as trustee and has asked us to step in as trustee (family disagreements). The beneficiary was a foster child of the deceased and it would be unsuitable to distribute early. The beneficiary has no suitable parents to distribute to, or act as trustee.
I am concerned as to how to invest the monies appropriately having regard to ongoing fees etc. I note that Trustees can’t hold premium bonds.
