A trust allows you to transfer ownership of designated property to a trustee for management in accordance with terms that you set out in a written document. Trusts combine investment and potential tax-saving opportunities with the ability to provide for the well-being of loved ones, even after your death.
In Canada, there are two broad categories of trusts used in estate planning: inter vivos trusts and testamentary trusts:
- Inter vivos trusts are established during your lifetime using a trust agreement, and can become effective as soon as you establish and fund an account for the trust.
- Testamentary trusts are established under your will and become effective only after your death.
A trust can allow you to:
- Protect family assets
- Minimize estate taxes
- Plan for incapacity
A personal trust in Canada can help preserve your wealth during your lifetime. And, in the event of death or disability, a personal trust usually provides for the ongoing management of your assets. It can also facilitate the transfer of assets to your loved ones or to charity, and help protect your wealth for generations.
An individual trustee, such as a family member or advisor, often does not have the time or experience required to manage a considerable amount of money. A corporate trustee can provide you with dedicated professionals, a broad range of wealth management services and the fiduciary oversight necessary to appropriately manage your assets. In addition, a corporate trustee in Canada may be particularly well suited to perform all the duties involved in the administration of a complex and ever-changing trust relationship that may continue for several generations.
