"The power of appointment is the most efficient dispositive device that the ingenuity of Anglo-American lawyers has ever worked out." (W. Barton Leach, Powers of Appointment, 23 A.B.A.J. 807(1938).

As Professor Bloom writes in his book:
"Consider how the power of appointment device can be used by contemporary estate planners to achieve important non-tax dispositive goals: flexibility, control, and creditor protection. As an example, Client wants to create a testamentary trust for Client’s Child for life, and then to Client’s Grandchildren. Client does not like the rigidity that would result if the remainder interest was simply left to Grandchildren. See Trust #1 on Page A-1. Rather, he wants Child to decide up until his death how the trust principal will be enjoyed by Client’s Grandchildren. 
One solution is to give Child a special (nongeneral), exclusive (exclusionary) testamentary power of appointment pursuant to which Child will name in his will who among the Client’s Grandchildren will take and in what proportions. See Trust #2 on Page A-2. In this way, the trust remains flexible until Child dies and gives Child control over the principal, and the principal cannot be reached by Child’s creditors."  
If you do any estate and/or trust planning and drafting, this is an incredibly useful book which you will want to have at your fingertips. Included are many useful planning and drafting tips and warnings, numerous sample clauses and much more.
