Decanting 101

Steve Oshins and the Peak Trust Company recently did an excellent webinar on decanting trusts (slides). A client may have an irrevocable trust that worked great before, but now needs to be changed, and usually irrevocable trusts are set in stone and can’t be changed. Enter decanting. Decanting by statute (Missouri) or common law (Kansas) allows an irrevocable trust to be changed to meet the beneficiary’s evolving needs and help the trustee to more productively manage the assets in the beneficiary’s best interests.
