Section 5-12A-11

Management and control of fund; ownership of assets.

The trust institution shall have the exclusive management and control of each common trust fund administered by it and the sole right at any time to sell, convert, exchange, transfer or otherwise change or dispose of the assets comprising the same. The ownership of such assets shall be solely in the trust institution as fiduciary and shall be considered as assets held by it as fiduciary. A trust institution shall not invest any of its own funds in a common trust fund administered by it or by an affiliated trust institution; and, if the trust institution, because of a creditor relationship or any other reason, acquires any interest in a participation in such common trust fund, the participation shall be withdrawn on the first date on which such withdrawal can be effected; however, in no case shall an unsecured advance to a participant until the time of the next withdrawal be deemed to constitute the acquisition of an interest by a trust institution. A trust institution may charge a fee for the management of a common trust fund administered by it; provided, that the fractional part of such fee proportionate to the interest of each participant shall not, when added to any other compensations charged by the trust institution or by an affiliated trust institution to the participant, exceed the total amount of compensations which would have been charged to said participant if no assets of said participant had been invested in participations in the common trust fund.
