Where are the Family Trust assets kept?

They can be kept in the same form and in the same place as when they were in your name, only the title on the account changes. They may be maintained as bank accounts, stocks, bonds, securities, real estate, etc. They earn the same interest or pay the same dividends as before. You can continue your relationship with your same financial planner.
