Estate and trustee services
Australian Executor Trustees is the Trustee Services division of IOOF and has a long and proud history, spanning over 130 years.
In 1878, a young lady from Bendigo was orphaned and left a large sum of money which was managed by two unscrupulous businessmen. These men lined their pockets, leaving hers empty and she was left to wander the streets, destitute. Her story, when published, shocked the colony and prompted a group of South Australian businessmen to set up a company to ensure this sort of thing never happened again. That company is known today as Australian Executor Trustees.
Over the years, a number of mergers and amalgamations have expanded the services offered and today, Australian Executor Trustees is part of the IOOF group, offering a range of specialist services through three core businesses:
- Estate and trustee services
- Estate planning
- Estate administration
- Corporate trust
- AET SMSF
- AET small APRA fund
