While not a comprehensive list of the many different types of trust funds, offered by various global institutions, below are three very common types of trust accounts managed at Option24 Trading Inc.

A living trust, also known as a revocable trust, a type of trust in which an individual places assets during his lifetime, which then transfers to any number of designated beneficiaries after the individual’s death. The primary benefit of living trusts is that the assets avoid probate, which leads to extremely fast distribution of the assets to the beneficiaries.

A charitable remainder unitrust (CRUT), a trust formed to pass assets to a specified charity at the expiration of the trust. This type of trust has two main benefits. First, the donor establishing the trust contributes assets and immediately receives charitable contribution tax credit. Second, the assets in the trust pay a fixed-percentage amount of income to a beneficiary during the life of the trust. This type of trust is a great way to remove very low-basis stock from one’s portfolio.

A marital trust gets funded at one spouse’s death and is eligible for the unlimited marital deduction. The main benefits of this type of trust are to provide income for the surviving spouse while guaranteeing that the deceased spouse’s children receive an inheritance.
