More on Incentive Trusts
Have you ever seen the movie “The Ultimate Gift?” If so, you might have a general idea of what an incentive trust could look like. The general idea of an incentive trust is to motivate or “incentivize” certain behaviors and/or discourage undesirable behaviors by making the receipt of assets contingent upon compliance with or forbearance from those behaviors.
For example, you might want to tie the receipt of certain assets to:
- Health standards (no drugs or alcohol, regular exercise, no tobacco use, etc.)
- Moral standards
- Playing a certain role in a family business or venture
- Philanthropic activities
