This final chapter asks: If the purpose of trusts is to extend the function of property, what then is the function of property in trusts? The short and simple answer is that property enables trusts to exist in the first place; no property, no trusts. But there is a lot more to it than the mandatory rule requiring trusts to have trust properties. This concluding chapter discusses this.

Keywords: trusts; function of property; mandatory rule; modern trust law; trust asset
