About the Program
The Ohio Family Trust Company Act – a unique shareholder transition solution for families and family businesses built around the family’s personal philosophies.  With the 2016 passage of the Ohio Family Trust Company Act, Ohio is one of a small number of states with statutes allowing for both licensed and unlicensed family trust companies. If working with clients interested in passing a family business or other assets across successive generations, a family trust company may be the permanent trustee solution while allowing for continued family involvement. Join us to learn about the history of family trust companies, details on Ohio’s statute, and how to identify your clients that could benefit from establishing an Ohio family trust company.
