Trustee is a legal term which, in its broadest sense, can refer to any person who holds property, authority, or a position of trust or responsibility for the benefit of another.

Also a person in the local government. A trust can be set up either to benefit particular persons, or for any charitable purposes: typical examples are a will trust for the testator's children and family, a pension trust and a charitable trust. In all cases, the trustee may be a person or company, whether or not they are a prospective beneficiary.
