Trust-Owned Life Insurance: Managing Fiduciary Risk

“We reject a lax view of fiduciary obligations and insist upon their scrupulous observance. But to say that a man is a fiduciary only begins [the] analysis; it gives direction to further inquiry. To whom is he a fiduciary? What obligations does he owe as a fiduciary? In what respect has he failed to discharge these obligations? And, what are the consequences of his deviation from duty?” – Hon F. Frankfurter, SEC vs. Chenery (1943).
