International Trust Laws

Second Edition

Paolo Panico

  • Compares trust law across a number of jurisdictions, providing the reader with references to offshore case law legislation and case law that is often inaccessible.
  • Covers law and practice in leading trust centres such as Jersey, Guernsey, the Cayman Islands, the Bahamas, and the Isle of Man, with examples drawn from a wealth of other jurisdictions including New Zealand, Dubai, Mauritius and the Cook Islands.
  • Provides detailed analysis of common law and the recognition and circulation of trusts in civil law jurisdictions where trusts are practised under the Hague Trust Convention.
  • Includes discussion of offshore and onshore trust jurisdictions.
  • The book can be used either with a focus on a particular jurisdiction, analysing its trust law in relation to those of other jurisdictions; or with a focus on a particular topic, such as settlor's reserved powers, beneficiaries' rights to information, or protector's duties, illustrated by approaches from various trust jurisdictions.

New to this Edition:

  • New coverage of the retirement, removal, and appointment of trustees, with a particular emphasis on trustee indemnity.
  • Addresses the recognition of trusts in non-trust jurisdictions.
  • Updated coverage of case law and statute law across many jurisdictions, including the UK, Jersey and Guernsey, the US, the Cayman Islands, Switzerland, Italy, Hong Kong, BVI, Cyprus, Curaçao, the Bahamas, and New Zealand.
