When a person is the legal owner of assets, but is holding them on behalf of another person who is to receive the benefit from the assets ( i.e. the beneficiary), then the legal owner is holding the assets on trust for the beneficiary and is referred to as a trustee. Trustees have a legal obligation to manage and invest the assets appropriately on behalf of the beneficiary. A common example of a trust is a unit trust, where the trustees of the trust are holding the assets on behalf of the unit holders. The assets are invested by the unit trust manager on behalf of the trustee. Another example is when an adult holds assets on trust for a child until the child reaches his majority. Where the role is undertaken by professionals as a business the activity will require authorisation. Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein financial glossary
