    Anyone here uses a trust to investment in shares and trade in shares and options ?


    Do you trade as the trustee ( in my case, the trustee will be myself instead of a corporate trustee ) ? Meaning that the broker trading account is in the name of the trustee ( which again in my case is me, what should the account name be ? "Joe Bloggs as trustee for XYZ trust" ?

    However, the shares / options are owned by XYZ trust via "Joe Bloggs as trustee"?

    Do you need separate broker trading accounts for shares, options, warrants, bonds ?

    Basically, I want to setup the structure correctly first and know what / how to buy / sell as the trust / trustee.
