A Trust can be set up during a person's lifetime or via their Will
Trusts are used to ensure that certain people benefit from the Trust Fund (beneficiaries) without giving them full control of the fund.
Trusts provide a flexible and versatile tool for managing assets and estate planning, allowing for control, asset protection and distribution according to the wishes of the settlor (the person who establishes the Trust).
We typically advise clients to use Trusts in their estate planning when they express a need or desire to protect either assets or beneficiaries.
A Trust can be set up during a person’s lifetime or via their Will. The Trust Fund is managed by a group of people known as trustees. Trusts can be arranged in many ways and can specify exactly how and when the assets pass to the beneficiaries.
