What is a “Trust?”

A Trust is a situation in which property is vested in someone known as a Trustee who is under legally recognised obligations to handle the property in a particular way, and to the exclusion of any personal interest. These obligations may arise either by conscious creation by the previous owner of the property (the settlor) or because some other legally significant circumstances are present.
