What Is a Blind Trust & How Could It Benefit Me?
What is a blind trust and how may it benefit you? A blind trust is a trust
in which the beneficiaries have no knowledge of the holdings or the management
of the trust by the trustee or trustees. Blind trusts are designed to
keep the beneficiary unaware of the trust assets specifics, and this is
usually for the purpose of avoiding a conflict of interest. Many politicians
place their personal assets in a blind trust for this very reason.
Politicians and others in sensitive positions may place their personal
assets including investment income into a blind trust to avoid public
scrutiny and accusations of conflicts of interests, especially when by
the nature of their work, they direct government funds to the private
sector. However, a blind trust can also be used by those who have come
into a large inheritance or fortune within a short period of time in order
to keep their identity anonymous to the public.
