What is a testamentary trust?

A testamentary trust is a trust that is established through a person’s will and takes effect upon their death. It allows the testator (the person making the will) to specify how their assets will be managed and distributed after their passing. Testamentary trusts are commonly used for various purposes, including providing for the financial needs of beneficiaries, protecting assets from potential creditors, and minimizing tax liabilities. These trusts can be highly customizable, and the terms and conditions are typically outlined in the testator’s will, providing detailed instructions on how the trust is to be administered for the benefit of specific beneficiaries.
