Investment And Confidentiality

 

There are no statutory controls or restrictions upon investments by trustees of trusts that may be empowered to invest trust funds in any part of the world. They may invest in either real or personal property of any nature, whether income bearing or otherwise.

Probate requirements for wills obviously involve making a public record of the terms of a will, and the distribution requirements similarly because of public record. Trusts however are not filed and are not on any public register and the name of the trust need not be relevant to the parties concerned.
