18th February 2022, from 3.00 to
4.30 pm (CET)
Professional trustees often seek a wide-ranging, all-encompassing exemption from liability under a specific clause in the trust instrument. The range of conducts for which trustees may be validly exonerated has a direct impact on the protection of beneficiaries. Statutes and case law vary remarkably in this respect across the leading trust jurisdictions.
This webinar will explore the rules relating to trustee exemption clauses in England, Guernsey, Jersey and Scotland as well as the present status of the Bartlett clauses.
