Private Trust Companies
A Handbook for Advisers, Second Edition
Private trust companies play an increasingly important role in the wealth structures of many ultra-wealthy families, offering a high degree of control and flexibility in the administration of a family’s trusts and the management of trust assets. Featuring chapters written by leading practitioners from firms including Appleby, McDermott, Will & Emery and Squire Patton Boggs, this edition fully explores the legal, regulatory and practical dimensions of forming and operating a private trust company.
This title's content shines a light on organisational and operational issues such as designing a private trust company’s ownership structure, implementing proper internal controls, outsourcing services and working with professional advisers. Important matters like coordinating with the family office, communicating with family, protecting privacy and handling disputes involving private trust companies are also tackled.
