New Zealand is the number one country for express trusts per head of population, but with this comes downsides.
This conference addresses the vulnerabilities of Trustees, Beneficiaries and their Advisers, and the ethical dilemmas confronting them. It also poses the question of whether trusts as we know and use them may, under the new Trustee Act, become obsolete. Come and listen to our distinguished speakers impart their knowledge on a variety of topics, as they pose questions about the future of Trust law in New Zealand.
