A trustee is someone who is responsible for a trust. If they act (or fail to act) in a way that's not authorised by the trust or by the law, they may be liable for a claim against them. For instance, they may have distributed or invested assets in a way that was not permitted.
A breach of fiduciary duty may also have occurred, for instance, when a trustee profits from a trust, acts outside its powers or acts when there is a conflict of interests. These types of fiduciary duties are particularly common for directors of companies or executors of estates.
