Trust protectors are a relatively recent addition to trusts in the United States, but usage of trust protectors is growing quickly. A trust protector is an individual or entity appointed in a trust document who has certain powers over the trust and trustee(s) to help ensure the grantor’s intent is carried out and that the best interests of beneficiaries are maintained. One of the most frequently granted powers is the power to remove and replace a trustee.
