A unit trust is a trust in which the trust property is divided into a number of defined shares called units. The beneficiaries subscribe for the units in much the same way as shareholders in a company subscribe for shares. The assets of the trust are held by the trustee on trust for the unitholders, who generally are entitled to the capital and income of the trust fund in proportion to their holding of units.
