Nebraska Revised Statute 30-3204

Chapter 30


Securities received by fiduciary; investments authorized.

Trust funds received by administrators, executors, trustees or guardians may be kept invested in the securities received by them unless it shall be otherwise ordered by the court of appointment or unless the instrument under which such trust was created shall direct that a change of investments shall be made, and they shall not be liable for any loss that may occur through the depreciation of such securities. The provisions of this section and section 30-3201 shall in no manner affect the right of fiduciaries to continue the investments existing before August 9, 1933, that do not conform to the standards contained in said sections, but any investments so held that do conform, or subsequently acquired under the provisions of said sections may be continued notwithstanding changes in conditions of the security or the obligor that would render such securities ineligible for further investments.
