This text concerns the development of the trust idea in common and civilian law jurisdictions, whether mainland or offshore. While trusts are important for preserving family wealth and influence, over ninety per cent of the value of trust funds is found in commercial or financial trusts. It is interest in the latter type of trust that is likely to lead to the development of the trust idea in European mainland jurisdictions, especially as the economic destinies of European jurisdictions become increasingly intertwined and as the Hague Convention on the recognition of trusts comes to be implemented.;This book should appeal to academic trust lawyers and comparative lawyers, as well as common law and civil law practitioners, whether interested in taking advantage of foreign trust laws, or in developing in their local jurisdictions new ideas obtained from foreign jurisdictions.
