Hybrid Trust: Its Pros And Cons
A Trust is generally of two types- while a Fixed Trust where the maturity amount and the specific beneficiaries are named quite on advance as a part of the agreement by the testator, and on maturity the trustee just fulfills the terms of the agreement whereas a Discretionary Trust is the one where the name of the beneficiaries are not specified rather a criterion matches are preset and moreover the maturity amount is also not predetermined. So, as the name suggests, the Hybrid Trust is a blend of the both. A typical Hybrid has few assets which are fixed for distribution on maturity to specified beneficiaries while there are a set of assets which are tom be distributed on discretionary terms. The best part being, that the fixed provisions allows the closed relations of the testator with basic needs satisfactions before they get any excess or become ineligible on the criterion terms as of the discretionary assets . Whereas the eligible criterions keep space for asset allotment to parts who have no basic benefit but deserve returns.
