Since 2010, rising stock market values have helped bolster revenue for the Trusts and Estates industry, while higher household wealth and the aging of the US population has led to the creation of more trusts and estates. Moving forward, the industry is expected to benefit from legislation raising the federal estate tax exemption of assets at-death and lowering of the maximum tax rate. Over the next five years, the aging population and growing number of wealthy households are anticipated to increase industry assets.
