Charities may open trust saving bonds in which they store their funds and employers may also use trust saving bonds as a means to store their employees’ bonuses or rewards. In opening a trust saving bond, the bond holder ensures that additional interest is made before the financial assets are given to the beneficiary.


There are a choice of four trust saving bonds to choose from, and as the trustee, it may be your responsibility to choose the one that is most suitable in terms of the deceased’s wishes. The options are:

  • Discretionary trusts – This type of trust may enable the trustee to decide how to use the trust’s income and capital.
    Bare trusts – This type of trust may give the beneficiary the right to interest and capital in the trust.
  • Contingent trusts – The beneficiary is entitled to receive capital or income when they reach a certain age or live beyond a relative person (the initial beneficiary).
  • Interest in possession trusts – The beneficiary has the right to any income in the trust after expenses.
