Wealth Management Services
Help ease the burden on your family during a difficult time by naming a qualified executor to settle your estate.
Choosing Wilmington Trust as your executor can bring you the comfort of knowing an experienced and caring estate settlement team will carry out your wishes and effectively handle all duties, including:
- Gather and safeguard assets
Our team can value your estate assets properly, which can make a big difference in the amount of tax your estate will owe. It can also minimize the conflict between beneficiaries as the assets are divided among them.
- Handle legal documents and tax issues
We have the experience to file tax returns, interpret complicated legal documents, address the challenges presented by complex assets, and administer your estate plan in accordance with both the controlling legal documents and local and federal laws.
- Manage complicated family dynamics
As a corporate executor, we maintain objectivity during a time of grief and loss, which may help to prevent intra-family disputes over your assets.
Serving as the executor (or personal representative) of an estate requires a significant amount of time, energy, and responsibility.
