Topic: Protectors, power-holders, and practical issues

Powers held by protectors and other non-trustees are found in many modern trusts. However, two contrasting recent decisions of the Bermuda and Jersey courts have highlighted the potential for uncertainty as to how such powers are to be exercised, particularly protector powers to consent (or withhold consent) to trustee decisions. We will discuss these cases and the steps advisors can take to pre-empt problems that might arise given the current uncertainty in the law in this area.
