A trust is an entity that results from an act (an onerous or gratuitous contract, or a will), whereby a person transfers property from his or her patrimony to another patrimony that he or she constitutes; the property is appropriated for a particular purpose, and a trustee undertakes to hold and administer it.

Note
In certain cases, a trust is created by law. A trust may also be created by a judgment, where this is authorized by law.
