Essentially, as a fiduciary, you hold assets of others and are to protect those assets, and must be able to account for those assets. Many times, trustees and executors are sued for breaches of fiduciary duty. Actions by a trustee or executor and conservator are subject to Court review. If a fiduciary fails in administering the trust or acts in bad faith, he or she can be personally responsible for the losses to the trust or estate.
