1585.  

(a) For purposes of this section, two or more trust companies shall be deemed to be affiliated if they are members of the same affiliated group, within the meaning of Section 1504 of the Internal Revenue Code.

(b) Any trust company may establish and administer common trust funds composed of property permitted by law for the investment of trust funds, for the purpose of furnishing investments to any one or more of the following: (1) itself, as fiduciary; (2) itself and others, as cofiduciaries; (3) any affiliated trust company including, without limitation, any foreign (other state) affiliated trust company, as fiduciary; and (4) any affiliated trust company including, without limitation, any foreign (other state) affiliated trust company and others, as cofiduciaries. Any trust company may as such fiduciary or cofiduciary invest funds which it lawfully holds for investment in interests in common trust funds administered by itself or by any affiliated trust company including, without limitation, any foreign (other state) affiliated trust company, if such investment is not prohibited by the instrument, judgment, decree, order, or statute creating or governing such fiduciary relationship, and if, in the case of cofiduciaries, the trust company procures the consent of its cofiduciaries to such investment.

(c) Each common trust fund established hereunder shall be treated as an entity separate and distinct from the fiduciary relationships participating therein. No fiduciary in administering a participating fiduciary relationship shall be required to make any apportionment or allocation between the principal and income of this relationship different from that made for the common trust fund. No participating fiduciary relationship, nor any person having an interest in that relationship, shall have or be deemed to have any ownership in any particular property of the common trust fund, but each participating fiduciary relationship shall have a proportionate undivided interest in the fund and its income, and the ownership of all property of the common trust fund shall be in the trustee of the fund.

(d) This section shall apply to fiduciary relationships now in existence or hereafter established, whether the same be revocable or irrevocable. The commissioner, at his or her direction, may make an examination of any common trust fund established hereunder at the times and to the extent as he or she may deem advisable. The provisions of the Corporate Securities Law shall not apply to the creation, administration, or termination of common trust funds, nor to participation therein.
