As globalisation continues apace, opportunities are arising for practitioners in trust jurisdictions that did not exist a few years ago. Growth continues in the traditional trust jurisdictions, especially in civil law jurisdictions where trusts and foundations have previously been used in a limited capacity. In parallel, the concept of the foundation has been adopted by several common law jurisdictions that, until recently, have relied exclusively on trusts notably Jersey and Gibraltar.
The fifth edition of Trusts in Prime Jurisdictions has been fully updated and features a number of new chapters on topics including trust and real estate trust in Israel, what it means to be a fiduciary family office, the role of the trust protector, Islamic (Waqf) trusts, and trusts in relation to divorce. In addition, new for this edition are chapters on Germany and Bermuda.
