Personal Living Trust
Under a personal living trust arrangement, we can help you in managing a portion of your estate or your real/personal property that you want to set aside, for the primary benefit of a third party or beneficiary.


What is a Living Trust?

LIVING TRUST refers to trust agreements where the trustor creates a separate estate out of his general estate, to be managed by the trust institution, for the benefit of the designated beneficiaries, which could be the trustor and a third person(s) or third person(s) only. Under this trust agreement, the trustor cannot create a trust with himself as the sole beneficiary.

Living trust agreements shall define the functions and authorities of the trustee and must include provisions on the following:



- The purpose or intention of the trust;
- The nature and value of the property or sum of money
   that comprise the trust;

- The trustee’s investment powers;
- The name(s) of the beneficiaries; and
- The terms and conditions under which the
   income and / or principal of the trust is to be
   paid or to be disposed of during the lifetime
   and ultimately, upon the death of the Trustor
   or upon the occurrence of a specific event(s).

The trust shall be operative during the lifetime of the trustor and may either be irrevocable or revocable as explicitly indicated in the agreement.

Irrevocable Living Trust – Is where the Trustor decides to permanently designate his/her beneficiary/ies. Said arrangement would entail the Trustor to pay the necessary taxes (Donor’s Tax) as mandated by the law.

Revocable Living Trust – Is where the Trustor decides to designate his/her beneficiary/ies but retains the option to reassign or re-delegate a new beneficiary/ies.
