A trust is a legal arrangement in which one person, called the settlor, transfers ownership of an asset(s) to another person or entity, called the trustee, to hold and manage for the benefit of a third party, called the beneficiary. The settlor and trustee create the trust by executing a legal document called a trust agreement, which specifies the terms and conditions of the trust.
The trustee is responsible for managing the assets held in the trust and using them to provide for the beneficiary. This can include investing the assets, making decisions about their use, and distributing them according to the trust agreement. The beneficiary has the right to receive the benefits of the trust, but they do not have direct control over the assets held in the trust.
Trusts can be used for a variety of purposes, including estate planning, asset protection, charitable giving, and providing for loved ones who are unable to manage their own affairs. At Strive we can help individuals and families determine whether a trust is right for their situation and can assist with the creation and administration of a trust.
