The fees on these trusts are usually based upon a percentage of the trust if it is managed by an attorney or professional trust manager. The fee is generally about 0.5% -1% of the trust per year. Fees for investment or brokerage are separate from the management fees. Management fees include things like filing trust taxes, making trust distributions and paying trust bills. Everything else can be charged separately and is based upon the reasonableness of the fee for the service provided.
