Subchapter 004 : Trust Powers(Cite as: 8 V.S.A. § 14406)
§ 14406. Segregation of trust funds; exception
All monies, property, or securities received or held by a financial institution in the capacity of executor, administrator, receiver, assignee, trustee, or guardian shall be kept separate and distinct from its general business and shall not be mingled with the investments of its assets or be liable for its debts or obligations. However, a financial institution exercising trust powers, in good faith, may deposit temporarily in its commercial or savings departments any money so held in trust awaiting distribution or investment and may also deposit in its savings department as an investment for any one trust an amount insurable and insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. All such deposits in either department shall be in the name of the trust or in the name of the financial institution as trustee of the trust. If the security afforded by virtue of this section and section 14404 of this title is insufficient to satisfy in full any claim growing out of the holding or management of monies, property, and securities so received and held, the unsatisfied balance shall then be satisfied as are demands of the general creditors of the financial institution. (Added 1999, No. 153 (Adj. Sess.), § 2, eff. Jan. 1, 2001.)
