Titles in the Complete series combine extracts from a wide range of primary materials with clear explanatory text to provide readers with a complete introductory resource. Trustees have a duty to invest the trust funds to provide an income for the beneficiaries and to maintain or, indeed, increase the value of the trust. This chapter discusses the meaning of investment; the Trustee Act 2000; the duty of reasonable care and skill; investment advice and selection; the acquisition of land; the liability of trustees; exclusion of liability, ethical investment; delegation of the investment function to agents; and information for and the giving of reasons to the beneficiaries.
