Inter-Vivos Trust

An inter-vivos trust is a fiduciary relationship used in estate planning created during the lifetime of the trustor. Also known as a living trust, this trust has a duration that is determined at the time of the trust’s creation and can entail the distribution of assets to the beneficiary during or after the trustor’s lifetime. The opposite of an inter-vivos trust is a testamentary trust, which goes into effect upon the death of the trustor.
