What is an inter vivos trust?

An inter vivos trust, or rather, a living trust, is an arrangement created by an individual while he or she is still living that allows his or her affairs to be managed by someone else. An inter vivos trust is somewhat similar to how the contents of a will are handled, but instead, the person arranging the trust is called the beneficiary rather than the grantor and the person managing the trust is known as the trustee rather than the executor. Since this type of trust may be revoked at any time, it is often known as a revocable trust.
