About the Presentation

Secondary Planning for Charitable Remainder Trusts

At its inception, a charitable remainder trust (CRT) is usually a perfect fit for a client’s situation. It’s just the right kind of CRT, has just the right payout rate, has just the right beneficiaries, etc. But a CRT is an irrevocable trust—its terms cannot be changed—and usually spans decades of a client’s life. Over time, this combination—an inflexible trust on one hand and a client’s changing life on the other—can lead to a misalignment between the client’s situation and the CRT. In these cases, some form of secondary planning is probably in order. Evan Unzelman, President of Sterling Foundation Management, will discuss the range of options available to clients who have CRTs and how to determine which option, if any, is a fit for a given client.
