Directed Trustee Fees

Directed Trustee Fee Schedule

Generally, in a directed trust administration, Guaranty Bank & Trust, N.A. ("Guaranty") will be a "Directed Trustee." This means that with regards to matters related to the investment, reinvestment, and/or management of specified trust property, Guaranty will have no authority, discretion, or duty to monitor it. Rather, the trust property will be subject to the direction and authority of a third party advisor, such as an investment manager, financial advisor, or otherwise (an "Investment Trust Advisor'').

The term "Directed Trust Property" shall mean any trust property over which an Investment Trust advisor has authority to direct and instruct Guaranty regarding matters related to the investment, reinvestment, and/or management of such trust property.

The following schedule of fees applies to accounts for which Guaranty Bank & Trust, N.A. is serving as trustee, co-trustee or Agent, and has delegated the investment management responsibilities to another in accordance with the trust document or Client's written request. In addition to managing the trust, Guaranty's services may include account administration, safekeeping and custody of securities, and the collection and distribution of income and principal.

Annual Fee on the market value of assets:

  • First $1,000,000 (.65%) of market value
  • Next $1,000,000 (.57%) of market value
  • Next $3,000,000 (.50%) of market value
  • In excess of $5,000,000 will be negotiable

Fees are pro-rated and charged on a monthly basis on the total market value of assets at each month-end. Accounts are subject to a $4,000 minimum annual fee.

When unusual or extraordinary services are requested or required, reasonable additional charges will be assessed based on the duties and responsibilities involved and the total time spent. If the account holds any interests in a closely held business, real estate, gas, oil, mineral, or receivables, additional fees will apply.

There are no closing fees provided that the annual minimum trustee administration fee has been collected during the calendar year in which the account is closed.

In addition to the foregoing fees, brokerage commissions or other costs for trading activity may be charged to the account.

This fee schedule may be adjusted from time to time.
