What does ”Cy Pres” mean in a Will?

Cy Pres is a Latin term that roughly translated means “as best as you can”

It is used to tell the executors that they must adhere to the wishes of the deceased as closely as possible.

Please note: we do not use these archaic terms in our Wills. We prefer plain English.
