Should I name an executor?

You can name an executor to make sure your will is correctly executed and your wishes are respected. The role may not last more than two years. The executor can examine and sell the movable assets without any legal formalities. The executor is not remunerated, but may receive a specific bequest known in French as le diamant (the diamond) for their work. A friend or a relative or the President of the Institut Pasteur can be your executor.
