Section 10A-16-1.03

Powers and liabilities of trustees; liability of trust for acts of trustees.

The trustees shall hold the legal title to all property at any time belonging to the business trust. They shall have control over the property as well as the control and management of the business and affairs of the business trust. Liability to third persons for any act, omission, or obligation of a trustee of a business trust, when acting in such capacity, shall extend to the whole of the trust estate, or so much thereof as may be necessary to discharge such obligation, but no trustee shall be personally liable for any such act, omission, or obligation. The trustees shall have the powers as to the investment of the trust estate as may be set out in the declaration of trust without regard to the type of investments to which trustees generally are restricted by the provisions of Article 6 of Chapter 3 of Title 19 or otherwise.
