TOPIC: The Future of Trust Law in New Zealand

DATE: Wednesday, 29th September 2021, 9:00am to 5:30pm
VENUE: Delivered online via livestream

New Zealand is the number one country for express trusts per head of population, but with this comes downsides.


This LIVESTREAMED ONLINE CONFERENCE addresses the vulnerabilities of Trustees, Beneficiaries and their Advisers, and the ethical dilemmas confronting them.
