A trust is a relationship whereby property is held by one party for the benefit of another. A trust is created by a Settlor, also referred to as a Grantor or Maker, who transfers property to a Trustee. The Trustee holds that property for the beneficiaries designated by the Settlor in the trust agreement. People enter into minor trust agreements all the time without even realizing it. For example, imagine that you are moving out of the country and want to give your sister some valuable coins you once collected instead of taking them with you. Your sister, however, is away on vacation for another two weeks so you ask your brother to safeguard the coins until your sister returns and then give them to her. In that scenario, you have created a trust agreement wherein you are the Settlor, your brother is the Trustee, and your sister is the beneficiary of the trust.
