The responsibilities, authority, and obligations of trustees are outlined in the Trustee Act 1949, a legislation in Malaysia. According to the Act, a trustee is a person who manages assets on behalf of a beneficiary. Some of the Act's most important provisions include the following:

  • The duties of a trustee include acting in the beneficiaries' best interests and exercising authority in a careful and responsible manner. Also, the trustee must maintain correct records and submit frequent reports to the beneficiaries.
  • Investing and managing the trust's assets, selling or leasing property, and making decisions on the beneficiaries' behalf are all within the trustee's purview. The level of care that a trustee must use when using these powers is outlined in the Act.
  • A trustee is responsible for any loss brought on by a violation of their obligations or authority. In accordance with the Act, trustees may be compensated when they operate in good faith, for example.

In Malaysia, trustees may be incorporated by the Trustees (Incorporation) Act 1952. The Act calls for the creation of a corporate entity called a trustee corporation that is qualified to serve as a trustee. Some of the Act's most important provisions include the following:

  • The same rights and responsibilities apply to trustee corporations as they do to individual trustees. The corporation must operate in the beneficiaries' best interests and utilise its authority responsibly and sensibly.
