A trust is a relationship whereby property is held by one party for the benefit of another. A settlor creates the trust by transferring some or all of his/her assets to a trustee. The settlor nominates a trustee who then holds those assets in trust for the beneficiaries. Trusts are legal instruments that allow one to avoid probate and manage without minimizing assets.
Trusts can be beneficial to many people for different reasons. There are several different types of trusts, including; Testamentary Trust, Inter-Vivos Trust, Irrevocable Trust, Charitable Trust, Special Needs Trust, Spendthrift Trust, Resulting Trust, and Implied Trust.
