INTERNATIONAL PRIVATE CLIENT
8 July 2020
In this webinar, we shall consider the potential liability exposure of Singapore trustees, settlors and protectors.
4 Case Studies will be considered:
Case Study No. 1
The first case study will consider whether Singapore trustees, settlors and protectors may validly exclude negligent liability, including “gross” negligence, and whether the settlor of a reserved power trust stands in a fiduciary position;
Case Study No. 2
The second case study will consider the effectiveness of a “Bartlett” clause where trustees effectively supervise the activities of underlying companies. The future use of Bartlett clauses will then be considered, particularly in light of recent FATF TCSP guidance;
Case Study No. 3
The third case study will consider the liability position of a private trust company (PTC) and its directors and basis on which trustee removal proceedings may be brought against a PTC;
Case Study No. 4
The fourth and final case study will consider whether a trustee, settlor or protector may rely on a foreign law trust locally administered in Singapore to provide additional liability protections.
