Cayman Wealth Structuring Week Webinar 2: Solving modern problems for modern trustees

This session forms part of the STEP Cayman Wealth Structuring Week; a series of three webinars which took place in January 2021.


The modern trustee faces a number of modern challenges: a next generation of beneficiaries seeking greater involvement in the management of family wealth, requests to ensure trust assets are invested in sustainable or environmentally responsible sectors, new categories of activist settlors seeking to use their wealth to offer reparations or to support social justice.  Our panel will discuss how trustees can best meet these new challenges, and adapt the structures and processes associated with a traditional trust relationship to work effectively in the modern world.
