About the Talk

Trusts are normally seen as device to manage family wealth.  But the trust also has a number of commercial applications and purpose of this talk is to explain the way trusts can be used in transnational transactions.  It will outline what is a trust, what happens when rights are placed on trust, the insolvency effects of a trust, and the various forms of trust-holding which can be utilized for business purposes, including Collective Security Trusts for holders of bonds or debenture stock, syndicated loan trusts, subordination trusts, securitization trusts of special purpose vehicles, and project financing and future income stream trusts.  Transnational business transactions may also involve give rise to issues in the conflict of laws, but, because of time constraints, these will not be covered.
