‘Guernsey – the optimal trust jurisdiction’

In Events

Guernsey is a leading jurisdiction for the establishment and management of trusts that is based on a robust judicial system. Guernsey is also recognised as an international finance centre that is governed by a strong regulatory body, which supervises the financial services industry.

Although historical trust laws are the backbone of trust legislation in Guernsey, it has also introduced modern trust legislation to meet the changing needs, demands and requirements for clients seeking trust solutions. Along with a large and well-qualified professional trust sector, the seminar will showcase why Guernsey should be considered as the trust jurisdiction of choice.
