Do I select my trustee?

Yes. You select the trustee or trustees you want to administer the Family Trust. You can have as many trustees as you want. You can provide whether your trustees may each act alone or whether they must act together. Typically, your closest family members serve as trustees. You can also designate successor trustees.
