Formal Trust

What is a formal trust?

A trust is a formally documented legal arrangement where a trustee holds and deals with assets on behalf of, and for, the benefit of a beneficiary. The trustee(s) can be a Company or individual(s). Unlike a company a trust is not a legal entity.  A formal trust deed is required.

People's Choice Trust Funds

Follow the steps below to learn how to set up a trust fund with People's Choice.

Step 1. Setting up the business membership for your trust fund

To operate a trust account, a formal trust deed is required, which will state who are the trustees. The trustees can be an individual or a company.

Do all trustees have membership with Peoples Choice?

Yes - Great! Proceed to the next steps below.

No - Not a problem!

  • Individual Trustees – you need to be a personal member for a minimum of 12 months to apply for a Trust Membership
  • Company as Trustee – You will need to set up the Company Membership first. If your company operates with Multiple directors, ensure at least 1 director has been a personal member for a minimum of 12 months prior to opening the Company Membership. One Business Membership application form can be completed for both the Company and the Trust.
