(1)Definitions. In this section:

(a) “Corporate fiduciary" means all of the following:

1. A trust company bank, state bank with trust powers, corporation or limited liability company, that is authorized under the laws of this state to accept and execute trusts.

2. A national bank or other federally chartered financial institution, if that bank or institution has its principal place of business in this state and is authorized by the appropriate federal agency to accept and execute trusts.

(b) “Subsidiary" of a bank holding company means any other corporation or limited liability company of which voting stock having a majority of the votes entitled to be cast is owned, directly or indirectly, by the bank holding company.

(c) “Trust business" includes self-declared trusts that are established and maintained by a corporate fiduciary, such as common trust funds and group trust funds, and all other activities in which a corporate fiduciary is acting as a fiduciary, as defined in s. 112.01 (1) (b), regardless of whether or not a portion of these activities could be undertaken by an entity that is not authorized to accept and execute trusts in this state.

(2)Transfer to successor fiduciary. If the board of directors of a bank holding company adopt a resolution directing one of its subsidiaries that is a corporate fiduciary to succeed to all or part of the existing or future trust business of another of its subsidiaries that is a corporate fiduciary, the successor corporate fiduciary shall succeed to the predecessor corporate fiduciary. The substitution shall be effective on the date specified in the resolution and no additional authorization is needed. The successor corporate fiduciary shall succeed to all capacities in which the predecessor corporate fiduciary had been acting with respect to the transferred trust business. If, or to the extent that, the resolution directs that one subsidiary shall succeed to future trust business of another subsidiary of the same bank holding company, the successor shall be considered to be named as fiduciary in all writings that named the predecessor corporate fiduciary as trustee, including all wills, trusts, court orders and similar documents and instruments.
