Trustees are a vital component of reinsurance, and choosing the right one can be the difference between a smooth experience and a sticky one. The true cost of a trust is defined by more than the dollars, and the time you spend as a grantor or a beneficiary of a reinsurance trust must also be considered. Some trustees understand the nature of the reinsurance trust business better than others.
