What is a Trust exactly? Originating from the time of the Crusades, Trusts were set up by wealthy landowners to ensure their affairs were managed by a Trusted person whilst they were away. Unfortunately, many did not return! However, they had the peace of mind that their estate would be passed on or divided according to their wishes: thanks to their foresight in setting up a Trust.
