Formal Trust

What is a trust fund or a formal trust?

A formal trust is a structure where a trustee, which can either be an individual or a company, carries on business for the benefit of certain beneficiaries. A formal trust deed outlines how the trust will operate and how profits are distributed into the trust fund amongst the beneficiaries.
