Why appoint a trust corporation?

Historically one of the significant problems with Trusts has been the choice, appointment and maintenance of trustees. As Trusts tend to be long lived and enduring there is sometimes the need to change trustees when a current trustee dies, retires or even has an extended holiday or illness. Sometimes it is not only difficult to find a new person but especially where there is property or land involved this can involve not only legal expense but also Land Registry fees.

As Albert Goodman Trust Corporation Limited is an enduring entity – replacement trustees will never be needed. Many of the Albert Goodman partners and senior staff are directors and all work is subcontracted to the practice.  This ensures that there will always be a wide range of professionals with specialist private client, trust, inheritance tax knowledge and expertise available. Any charges are for work that is done on the trust behalf – not for merely being a trustee

Our services


AG-TCL will act alongside other individuals or professionals as trustees.  Appointing a professional trustee ensures independent and objective decisions are made by qualified individuals, reducing the risk of family disputes and potential conflicts of interest.

Wills and Estates

AG-TCL can be appointed to act as executor. Appointing a trust corporation to fulfil this role guarantees there will be a qualified professional in place whenever that day should arrive. AG-TCL will act alongside other family members or professionals to provide independent and impartial support and guidance at this difficult time, whilst taking the necessary actions to wind up the estate in an efficient and tax effective manner.
