In 1906, a gentleman named Francis Galton attended a farmer's fair and observed a contest guessing the weight of an ox. More than 800 guesses were registered, including both regular townspeople and livestock experts.


Amazingly, the collective average guess was only one pound less than the actual weight of 1,198 pounds and much closer than any of the livestock experts. He referred to this phenomenon as "The Wisdom of Crowds".

Securities prices are set by similar but much larger groups of people in the open market. Experts and amateurs both contribute their value guess in the form of purchases and sales.

How do we harness the wisdom of crowds to help you build a secure financial future?

There was an article in the "weird news" section about a woman that left $100,000 to her three Cockatiels. A friend, knowing the business I am in, asked, "how does that work?" The money is left in a trust for the care of the birds, and a trustee is appointed by the trust document to manage the care of the birds using distributions from the trust. The follow up question was, "what keeps the trustee from taking all the money for themselves?" The answer is nothing really, but it can be prevented using a corporate trustee.

The lesson here is that picking the right trustee for your trust is probably the most important factor as to whether your trust works as you intended or not.  Even if your beneficiaries aren't birds, what do you need to consider when looking for a responsible trustee?
