The Restatement of Trusts 2d has admitted that there is no clear dividing line between actions that an agent can properly delegate to those that he cannot properly delegate. Instead, the comment drew attention to a list of factors that “may be important: (1) the amount of the margin of appreciation; (2) the value and character of the property concerned; (3) whether the property is capital or income; (4) proximity or distance from the object of trust; 5. the character of the act as an activity involving professional skills or establishments that are owned or not owned by the agent himself. Restatement of Trusts 2d Nr. 171, Commentary d (1959).

A parallel term to the delegation is the award that occurs when a party transfers its current rights to obtain the benefits due to the transfer of this contract. A delegation and transfer may take place simultaneously, although the right to continue non-payment remains with the delegate.

Old law. The old rule of non-delegation survived until the 1959 restoration: “The agent is obliged, vis-à-vis the beneficiary, not to delegate to others the acts that the agent can reasonably perform personally.” The rule emphasized the often arbitrary task of distinguishing discretionary functions considered non-delegated from the supposedly completed functions that the agent was authorized to delegate.
