    Why are Trusts useful?

    Trust law is used in order to avoid or address specific financial or property problems. It allows for control and distribution of assets by nominated trustees, which means they are viable for both personal and commercial uses. The two key areas trusts are used for are domestic matters (such as family assets) and taxation.
