Trusts

A Trust allows one person (or a group of people) to look after someone else’s assets (which could include property, money or investments) for the benefit of another person or group of people.

The person who put the assets into a Trust is called the ‘donor’, and those people who take charge of the assets are called ‘trustees’. The trustees are responsible for looking after the assets in a way that will most benefit the ‘beneficiaries’ who are named in the Trust Deed or Will.

Why set up a Trust?
