Trustees are under increasing risk of potential litigation from co-trustees, beneficiaries and interested parties, not to mention exposure to penalties for non-compliance with regulatory obligations under AML, CRS and FATCA.
Recent case law, tax/regulatory compliance developments and impending changes to legislation are enabling an expanded group of parties to question trustee decision making and penalise trustees for non-compliance.
