As your wealth management team, we work with professionals at Baird, to offer a broad array of customizable trust solutions to help you build, protect and distribute your wealth – on your terms.

Trust Administration
Baird Trust Officers work with you and your family in a fiduciary capacity to ensure your wishes are carried out and your loved ones are provided for as planned. They serve as both corporate trustee and agent for trustee on various types of trusts, including revocable living trusts, irrevocable marital and family trusts, all types of charitable trusts, and life insurance trusts.

Their experience in trust administration offers clients significant advantages:

  • Professional trust administration within the scope of the governing document
  • Collaboration with existing tax and estate planning advisors
  • Assistance in implementing gifting strategies
  • Bill payment and IRA distribution management services
  • A wide array of charitable giving solutions, including family foundation management, charitable remainder and lead trust administration as well as fiduciary
  • services to nonprofits

Estate Settlement
The Baird Trust estate settlement team’s primary duty is to settle the decedent’s personal and financial affairs – filing taxes, paying bills, collecting final wages and insurance proceeds and closing accounts. By serving as executor of your estate, Baird Trust can ensure your assets are distributed per your wishes, with the utmost sensitivity, efficiency and privacy.

Estate settlement services include:

  • Managing all estate assets
  • Interpreting the terms of any wills, codicils and trusts
  • Working with legal advisors, CPAs and trustees to determine the maximum extent and value of the estate
  • Distributing all estate assets
