“The rise in ageing Australians and increase in blended families has created unprecedented demand for trustee services. This year our trustees business has seen solid growth and helped more individuals and families achieve better wellbeing”, Kerr said.

Follows added that the business was “based on the premise that trustee services should support the wellbeing of every Australian, rather than acting as a service exclusive to the wealthy”.

“I’m excited to continue leading our team to help Australians ensure their wishes are fulfilled after a death or loss of capacity”, she said.
