A trustor is the legal term for the person who creates the trust instrument. It's also called a donor or grantor in some jurisdictions. The trustor transfers the assets into the trust, and determines the terms of the trust. The trust assets can be real estate, money, business interest or personal possessions. The opposite of a trustor is a trustee. The trustee is responsible for administering the trust on behalf of the beneficiaries. The trustor pays a fee to the trustee for managing the trust according to the trust instrument.
