Who is an appointor/principal of the Trust?

This is a very important role as the appointor can appoint and remove trustees under the powers of the Trust Deed. The Trustee may have responsibility for the day to day running of the trust; however, the appointor retains ultimate control. The appointor’s consent is also required to make any amendments to the Trust Deed. The NowInfinity Trust Deed allows for the appointment of this role to be optional. If chosen, the trust can have one or more appointors as well as successor appointor roles based on specific events. If there are two or more appointors, they must exercise their powers jointly. If you were to have a single individual trustee, it is not recommended that person also be the sole appointer. In this instance, joint appointors should be put in place.
