Trust and Estate Practitioner

The Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) was founded in 1991 by George Tasker as a hub for local forums of practitioners. STEP is the international professional body for those who work in the trust industry and the (often overlapping) field of estate administration. Its members are mainly solicitors, barristers, attorneys, accountants, trust officers and trust administrators as well as banking and insurance professionals in the trust field.

The main focus of the organization is to administer the examination process to ensure the quality of the membership, to provide educational and networking opportunities for STEP members at branch level and to contribute to debate and public policy in its specialist field. All STEP members belong to a branch or chapter that provides professional development and opportunities to network with peers at a local level. STEP has over 100 branches and chapters across the world.

My application for Full Membership of STEP was approved by STEP’s Membership Committee at their meeting on 10 December 2015. As a Full STEP Member I am entitled to use the designatory letters ‘TEP’ (Trust and Estate Practitioner).
