From the Knowledge Base
What is a unit trust?
A unit trust is a commonly used structure where the business is a venture between several unrelated interests. Beneficiaries have a fixed interest in all the property that is the subject of the trust. A unit trust then differs to a discretionary trust as the beneficiaries’ rights to income and capital are subject to the discretions on the part of the trustee.
What is the trust deed?
The trust deed defines the relationship between the trustee and the beneficiaries. The parties to the trust deed are the settlor and the trustee. The trust deed specifically sets out the duties and powers of investment of the trustee, the beneficiaries, and other important stuff.
What is the role of the Trustee?
Trustee is appointed by unit holders with powers contained in the trust deed. Trustee owes a duty of care of “good faith” to the unit holders and the deed requires that all trustee(s), at all times, act in best interests of all unit holders. Trustee may be held personally liable for debts incurred in their capacity as a trustee but have the right to be indemnified out of the assets of the trust. A trustee can resign if he / she so wishes by giving notice to all unit holders.
