The Cayman Islands is one of the world's leading jurisdictions for the establishment of offshore trusts. However, it is not easy for a practitioner to approach the drafting of a Cayman Islands trust instrument with confidence. This eminently practical book solves that problem to near perfection. Arranged as a collection of precedents, with each provision of every precedent explained in detail, Drafting Cayman Islands Trusts, could hardly make the drafting process easier. The drafter learns the advantages and potential pitfalls associated with each provision as he or she prepares to draft it. The authors provide specific language, although individual variations (based on the authors' expert guidance) are encouraged. The precedents covered including the following: Discretionary trusts (with and without protectors) Interest in possession trust Reserved powers trust Charitable trust STAR trusts Appointments and retirements of trustees For additional convenience, the precedents are also provided in Word format on a CD-ROM that comes with the book. The detailed annotation answers such key questions as the following: Are hostile beneficiaries clauses valid? Do automatic flee clauses work? What powers can a settlor reserve? How can STAR trusts be used to protect trustees holding high-risk assets? Would STAR trusts be recognised in other jurisdictions? How can one restrict a beneficiary's right to information and trust documents? Can the appointment of a foreign trustee discharge a retiring Cayman trustee? What indemnities should retiring trustees request from successors? As a systematic approach to drafting Cayman Islands trusts, this book will be of immeasurable day-to-day value to practitioners and administrators alike.

Trust law has grown and developed over recent years through the continued ingenuity of practitioners and the provision of innovative new trust laws by offshore jurisdictions. The wealth managed through the medium of trust law has also changed in recent years, as increasingly it has come from the newly rich of Asia. This brings distinctive issues to the fore: the role of settlors, family members and trusted advisors in trust administration; the position of trustees in relation to instructions coming from such persons; and an increased desire for confidentiality in trust administration and the settlement of trust disputes. This collection focuses on trusts which are deliberately created to manage wealth and the concomitant issues such trusts raise in other areas of law. Essays from leading members of the judiciary, practitioners and academics explore these developments and their implications for the users of trust law and for society in general.

With its unique contextual emphasis and authoritative commentary, Trusts Law: Text and Materials is a book that no serious undergraduate on trust law courses can afford to be without. The book is divided into four main parts: trusts and the preservation of family wealth; trusts and family breakdown; trusts and commerce; and trusts and non-profit activity. Within each of these parts, leading cases, statutes, and historical and research materials are placed alongside the narrative of the author's text to give emphasis both to general theories of trust concepts and to the practical operation of trusts. Attention is also given to important themes such as the developing relationship between trusts law and other areas of private law such as the Law of Restitution. This new edition takes account of all relevant judicial and legislative developments since the third edition, and expands discussion of key themes in current developments of the law.
