The discipline of offshore financial law has developed substantially since the first edition of this book was published. The second edition updates the reader with developments in case law and legislation and also covers a more extensive range of offshore jurisdictions including new coverage of Switzerland, Dubai, Hong Kong, Alaska, Nevada, Singapore, and Liechtenstein. For ease of reference the new edition includes an introductory chapter which gives a summary of the legislative infrastructure in the various jurisdictions. This provides a quick guide to where to find answers on offshore financial law matters. Recognizing the importance of Islamic finance there is now a chapter on the Shari'a Trust in offshore financial law. Other new chapters focus on US 'Offshore' Trusts such as the Nevada and Alaska Trusts and the Foundation trust, a vehicle used in civil jurisdictions. Considering the impact of the G20 and more recent OECD discussions on confidentiality, disclosure, and tax issues, this new edition brings the reader up to date with the changing regulatory landscape concerning the offshore sector. All practitioners and scholars interested in offshore financial law will find this text to be an essential reference source on the law and practice in this sector.
