That said, ACAT is one of many methods that could be used to transfer the assets with the same set of paperwork. They may use and entirely different system to move the money if the ACAT system will not work. The losing firm may require copies of the paperwork, for example (in a "typical" ACAT the gaining firm just enters the request electronically and puts the paperwork in their file, the losing firm never sees it). There could also be a delay setting up the new account since it's a trust, something simple. There most certainly would be other delays if it's a testamentary trust or other irrevocable trust.
