Setting up a last will and testament directs where and to whom your money goes, but it does not detail how exactly your assets are to be used overall. Estate executors may then determine what you would have liked your beneficiaries do with the money is where trusts come in.
By setting up a trust, a settlor can set up particular terms and conditions that need to be followed, for example, a beneficiary that is a minor will have financial upbringing that you would have given them if you were present. Trusts allow you to determine when and how beneficiaries receive their inheritances instead of just receiving a lump sum with no instruction. You can manage wealth and inheritances and what they’re able to be spent on.
All in all, a trust gives you as a settlor the most control over how your assets will be used and when. The trustee will be in charge of executing your vision and will need to purchase a trustee surety bond to ensure that they faithfully execute the trust according to the terms of said trust.
