Trusts are legal arrangements whereby property is managed by a trustee for the benefit of the beneficiaries of the trust. There are all sorts of different types of trusts and different trust structures – for example, you might use a trust to manage your assets, for estate planning, for tax purposes or to provide for loved ones.
