Small, Independent Trust Company with Big, Original Ideas
Flexibility allows us to do things differently from our competitors. Practitioners praise our customized solutions and ability to service clients in ways other corporate trustees cannot.
Limited Power of Attorney for IRAs
This proprietary product enables Mission to serve as an agent under a limited power of attorney, authorizing us to make decisions about your client’s IRA investments and process RMDs. This service complements our successor trustee role for clients who have small trusts, but significant IRA assets.
Our team understands that each trust is different. We navigate the unique fiduciary and practical challenges inherent in administering trusts with non-traditional and hard-to-value assets. We manage or have managed trusts, estates and IRAs with:
Notes, loans and mortgages
Real estate, including commercial, residential and vacant lots
Business entities, such as LLCs or partnerships
Mineral, oil and gas rights
Collectible art, furniture and jewelry
Trust Language Required and Acceptance of Appointment
Other institutions require specific language for your client’s trust document. Mission believes that you know your client best and trusts you to draft estate planning documents to meet your client’s objectives. All we ask is that you get our name right: Mission Management & Trust Co. While we greatly appreciate copies of the completed estate plan, we also understand your client’s preference for privacy.
We don’t take months to determine whether we will accept an appointment. We know that time is of the essence and families are waiting to move forward with their loved one’s estate or trust. Documents required to help us make our decision include trust document and any amendments, will and any codicils, and three years of tax returns and financial statements.
Transparent Pricing with Competitive Minimum Annual Fees
Our fiduciary fees are based primarily on a fixed percentage of the assets under management in an account. We offer fair fee schedules with competitive minimum annual fees for clients with:
Revocable or irrevocable trusts of over $500,000 in assets
Special needs trusts of over $500,000 in assets
IRAs (including traditional, Roth, Simple or SEP) with over $500,000 in assets
