Executor services

An executor is the person or organisation responsible for carrying out the wishes outlined in your Will. When appointing an executor, you can choose a family member, friend or professional trustee company, such as us.

Being an executor is not for the faint-hearted. It is often a time-consuming, complex and challenging task that takes place at what can be a difficult and emotional time.

Appointing a professional trustee company, such as AET, to act as executor brings many benefits:

  • Because of our capacity to be independent, objective and impartial, we act on your wishes and are not subject to family influence.
  • We have more than 130 years’ experience in estate administration, and our sound business practices mean we provide continuity of service.
  • We do not rely on a single person(s), whose absence, illness or death could prevent them from fulfilling their duties to you.
  • By letting us undertake the often onerous and demanding role of executor or trustee, you gain a sense of security and peace of mind.

How we can help you

You can appoint us as the executor of your Will, we can help administer a deceased estate and we can prepare an estate plan. Or in the case of legal or other incapacity, we provide attorney and financial management services.
