When choosing the right person to serve as executor, experts recommend you look for someone with the following qualities:
Fair and loyal. An executor needs to be fair to all beneficiaries of your estate and loyal to carrying out your wishes.
Trustworthy. You need to choose someone who can be trusted to handle your assets wisely and invest them prudently.
Organized. The executor you choose has to be organized, as they will be responsible for filing estate tax returns, paying creditors and communicating financial details to beneficiaries.
Thick skinned. Your executor needs to be tough enough to stand up to demanding beneficiaries and have the persistence to handle unforeseen circumstances.
