A blind trust is a trust in which the beneficiaries are unaware of the trust's specific assets, and in which a fiduciary third party has discretion over all management of the trust assets. For example, politicians may use a blind trust to hold their assets while they're in office to avoid conflict of interest accusations. Blind trusts are set up with grantor and beneficiary being the same, and a trust company as trustee. The trust company holds stocks, bonds, real estate, and other income-generating property in trust for the beneficiary, but the beneficiary lacks knowledge of what stocks or bonds or real estate or other investments are in the trust.

This trust is not meant for a politician but for a person in private life who desires a blind trust. This form is a generic example that may be referred to when preparing such a form for your particular state. It is for illustrative purposes only.
