What is a Trust?

The Trust is considered one of the most useful legal tools. It provides a solution to a broad range of personal and commercial needs of companies, developers, families, creditors, and others.

Specifically, it is a contract by means of which a person called the Settlor transfers certain assets and/or rights to the fiduciary institution (Trustee) so that it can administer them according to the agreed terms, delivering the benefits from the trust to a third party called the Beneficiary.

It is important to mention that trusts can be created for everything and everyone, the only limit is that the purpose of the trust be lawful and possible, preparing, case by case, a contract that is adjusted to exactly satisfy the needs of each client.


Individual or entity that contributes assets or rights it owns to the trust, establishing conditions of administration and distribution.


Fiduciary Institution that receives such assets or conveyed wealth in the trust property, with the mission of complying with the provisions established by the settlor.


Individual or entity, national or foreign, that receives the benefit of the trust; can be the settlor itself or a third party.
