A trust is a relationship where property is held by one party for the benefit of another. It is created by a settlor, who transfers some or all of his or her property to a trustee. The trustee holds that property for the trust’s beneficiaries. Trusts are frequently created in wills, defining how money and property will be handled for children or other beneficiaries.
