Trusts remain a legitimate and useful tool for a variety of purposes, from asset protection to estate and tax planning. If you want a technical definition, you could say that trust is a three-way fiduciary relationship. All this means is that it is an agreement that allows one party to transfer their property to a legal entity (the second party) for the benefit of a third party, the beneficiary.
This agreement – known as the “Deed of Trust” – is set up and agreed upon by the first two parties. It does not relinquish control of the assets placed in the trust, but it does clearly spell out how the assets are to be used and distributed.
The most common use of a trust is to ensure that the trust assets are protected from misuse by the beneficiaries and managed according to the wishes of the Settlor of the trust. This is the key difference between a trust and other wealth management options.
