Mutual Wills

ABC Blocks

A business in which the investors give management authority to a trustee and receive “trust certificates” representing their investments. since they own only the certificates and do not participate in management, the investors can only lose their investment and are not personally liable for any debts of the trust. this is similar to a “limited partnership.” a massachusetts trust is strictly a business entity and bears no relationship to a personal trust like living and testamentary trusts set up to manage and protect the assets of individuals and provide for eventual distribution.
