The Difference Between a Settlor, a Trustee and a Beneficiary

Ever wondered who is involved in a trust? We are breaking down the roles for you to easily understand.

A settlor is a person or company that creates the trust. There can be more than one settlor of a trust.

The trustees are the people who manage the trust. The settlor can also be a trustee. It can also be a good idea to appoint an independent trustee who is not a relative. For example, professionals like a lawyer or accountant.

The beneficiaries are the people who benefit from the trust. For example, the family members of the settlor.
