A trust consists of a Founder, Trustee and one or more Beneficiaries. Within this fiduciary relationship, the trust beneficiaries gain the most. The founder contributes assets to the trustees (the second party) for the benefit of beneficiaries. The contract shared by the Founder and Trustees is detailed in the trust deed.
