(205 ILCS 620/6-10)
(from Ch. 17, par. 1556-10)
The receiver for a corporate fiduciary, under
the direction of the Commissioner, shall have the power and
authority and is charged with the duties and responsibilities as
(1) To take possession of, and for the purpose of the
receivership, the title to the books, records and assets of every description of the corporate fiduciary.
(2) To proceed to collect all debts, dues and claims
belonging to the corporate fiduciary.
(3) To file with the Commissioner a copy of each
report which he makes to the court, together with such other reports and records as the Commissioner may require.
(4) The receiver shall have authority to sue and
defend in the receiver's own name and with respect to the affairs, assets, claims, debts and choses in action of the corporate fiduciary.
(5) The receiver shall have authority, and it shall
be the receiver's duty, to surrender to the customers of such corporate fiduciary, when requested in writing directed to the receiver by such customers, the assets, private papers and valuables left with the corporate fiduciary for safekeeping, under a custodial or agency agreement, upon satisfactory proof of ownership.
(6) As soon as can reasonably be done, the receiver
shall resign on behalf of the corporate fiduciary, all trusteeships, guardianships, and all appointments as executor and administrator, or as custodian under the Illinois Uniform Transfers to Minors Act, as now or hereafter amended, or as fiduciary under custodial or agency agreements or under the terms of any other written agreement or court order whereunder the corporate fiduciary is holding property in a fiduciary capacity for the benefit of another person, making in each case, from the records and documents available to the receiver, a proper accounting, in the manner and scope as determined by the Commissioner to be practical and advisable under the circumstances, on behalf of the corporate fiduciary. The receiver, prior to resigning, shall cause a successor trustee or fiduciary to be appointed pursuant to the terms set forth in the governing instrument or pursuant to the provisions of the Illinois Trust Code, as now or hereafter amended, if applicable, then the receiver shall make application to the court having jurisdiction over the liquidation or winding up of the corporate fiduciary, for the appointment of a successor. The receiver, if a corporate fiduciary, shall not be disqualified from acting as successor trustee or fiduciary if appointed under the terms of the governing instrument, by court order or by the customer of the corporate fiduciary whose affairs are being liquidated or wound up and, in such case, no guardian ad litem need be appointed to review the accounting of the receiver unless the beneficiaries or customers of the corporate fiduciary so request in writing.
(7) The receiver shall have authority to redeem or
take down collateral hypothecated by the corporate fiduciary to secure its notes and other evidence of indebtedness whenever the Commissioner deems it to be in the best interest of the creditors of the corporate fiduciary and directs the receiver so to do.
(8) Whenever the receiver shall find it necessary in
the receiver's opinion to use and employ money of the corporate fiduciary, in order to protect fully and benefit the corporate fiduciary, by the purchase or redemption of any property, real or personal, in which the corporate fiduciary may have any rights by reason of any bond, mortgage, assignment, or other claim thereto, the receiver may certify the facts together with the receiver's opinions as to the value of the property involved, and the value of the equity the corporate fiduciary may have in the property to the Commissioner, together with a request for the right and authority to use and employ so much of the money of the corporate fiduciary as may be necessary to purchase the property, or to redeem the same from a sale if there was a sale, and if such request is granted, the receiver may use so much of the money of the corporate fiduciary as the Commissioner may have authorized to purchase said property at such sale.
(9) The receiver shall deposit daily all monies
collected by the receiver in any State or national bank selected by the Commissioner, who may require (and the bank so selected may furnish) of such depository satisfactory securities or satisfactory surety bond for the safekeeping and prompt payment of the money so deposited. The deposits shall be made in the name of the Commissioner in trust for the receiver and be subject to withdrawal upon the receiver's order or upon the order of such persons as the Commissioner may designate. Such monies may be deposited without interest, unless otherwise agreed. However, if any interest was paid by such depository, it shall accrue to the benefit of the particular trust or fiduciary account to which the deposit belongs. Except as otherwise directed by the Commissioner, notwithstanding any other provision of this paragraph, the receiver's investment and other powers shall be those under the governing instrument or under the Illinois Trust Code, and shall include the power to pay out income and principal in accordance with the terms of the governing instrument.
(10) The receiver shall do such things and take such
steps from time to time under the direction and approval of the Commissioner as may reasonably appear to be necessary to conserve the corporate fiduciary's assets and secure the best interests of the creditors of the corporate fiduciary.
(11) The receiver shall record any judgment of
dissolution entered in a dissolution proceeding and thereupon turn over to the Commissioner a certified copy thereof, together with all books of accounts and ledgers of such corporate fiduciary for preservation, as distinguished from the books of accounts and ledgers of the corporate fiduciary relating to the assets of the beneficiaries of such fiduciary relations, all of which books of accounts and ledgers shall be turned over by the receiver to the successor trustee or fiduciary.
(12) The receiver may cause all assets of the
beneficiaries of such fiduciary relations to be registered in the name of the receiver or in the name of the receiver's nominee.
(13) The receiver shall have a reasonable period of
time in which to review all of the trust accounts, executorships, administrationships, guardianships, or other fiduciary relationships, in order to ascertain that the investments by the corporate fiduciary of the assets of such trust accounts, executorships, administrationships, guardianships, or other fiduciary relationships comply with the terms of the governing instrument, the prudent person rule governing the investment of such funds, or any other law regulating the investment of such funds.
(14) For its services in administering the trusts and
other fiduciary accounts of the corporate fiduciary during the period of winding up the affairs of the corporate fiduciary, the receiver shall be entitled to be reimbursed for all costs and expenses incurred by the receiver and shall also be entitled to receive out of the assets of the individual fiduciary accounts being administered by the receiver during the period of winding up the affairs of the corporate fiduciary and prior to the appointment of a successor trustee or fiduciary, the usual and customary fees charged by the receiver in the administration of its own fiduciary accounts or reasonable fees approved by the Commissioner.
(15) The receiver, during its administration of the
trusts and other fiduciary accounts of the corporate fiduciary during the winding up of the affairs of the corporate fiduciary, shall have all of the powers which are vested in trustees under the terms and provisions of the Illinois Trust Code.
(16) Upon the appointment of a successor trustee or
fiduciary, the receiver shall deliver to such successor trustee or fiduciary all of the assets belonging to the individual trust or fiduciary account as to which the successor trustee or fiduciary succeeds, and the receiver shall thereupon be relieved of any further duties or obligations with respect thereto.
