Short explanation of a trust
Trusts are a very old institution in England, but something of a novelty in Italy, having been introduced more or less 25 years ago, although all legal professionals (lawyers, magistrates and legislators) have since become convinced of their usefulness and flexibility.
A trust is an arrangement whereby a person (the trustee) holds certain assets – real estate, shares, securities, movable property of any kind, from jewels to artworks – as their nominal owner, on behalf of a beneficiary and for a certain purpose. Importantly, the assets held in trust constitute a separate and independent grouping, or pool, of assets, which is not affected by the vicissitudes of either the settlor or the trustee.
