Nevada Trust: Investment Policy & Fiduciary Services

“A wise man should have money in his head, but not in his heart.”

Nevada Trust Investment Policy Statement & Fiduciary Responsibility: Why it is so important

As the trustee of a private Nevada trust, foundation or other entity you are agreeing to take on the fiduciary responsibility of your Nevada trust in regards to its investment policy, tax, legal and regulatory requirements. When running a family Nevada trust or a foundation, very few Nevada trustees understand or have the ability to accommodate the fiduciary responsibility needed in order to properly manage the Nevada trust legal requirements. Not understanding or having the knowledge to properly administer the Nevada trust can leave the Nevada trustee open to a variety of legal concerns. Many of these can be avoided with the proper planning and investment strategy.

An Investment Policy Statement outlines the proper policies, strategies and procedures that are required of the investment management needs of the Nevada trust. Although most Nevada trusts typically require this document to be reviewed annually, it is also helpful to have it available during times of market turmoil so that grantors can remember why they established the portfolio they have. This assists Nevada trustees in maintaining their fiduciary responsibility to do the following.

  • Define the guidelines & objectives of the portfolio
  • Create a framework on which to evaluate investment performance
  • Provide guidance for all responsible parties regarding portfolio implementation & management
  • Select the appropriate amount of risk for a portfolio
  • Account for spending & liquidity needs
  • Select a proper time horizon for the portfolio
