Trust Company

A company, usually a division of a bank or brokerage, that acts as a trustee. In this relationship, one party, known as the trustor, gives to the trustee the right to hold and invest assets or property on behalf of a third party, known as the beneficiary. Most trusts exist to provide for the financial future of a minor child or mentally incompetent person, or may benefit charitable organizations. Many trusts are exempt from taxation on money given to the beneficiary, but trust companies may charge a fee in order to administer the assets. See also: Trust.
