Trust

There is no generally accepted definition of a trust, although many have attempted. Underhill defines a trust as"an equitable obligation binding a person (who is called a trustee) to deal with property over which he has control (which is called the trust property) for the benefit of the persons (who are called the beneficiaries ......) of whom he may himself be one, and any one of whom may enforce the obligation".
