The law of trusts is a subject of growing importance in the Commonwealth Caribbean. Traditional areas, such as testamentary trusts, constructive trusts and charitable trusts, are now fully incorporated into the mainstream legal system, whilst new types of trust, such as investment trusts and pension scheme trusts, are of increasing significance. In addition, the importance of the Caribbean as a region of tax havens cannot be overestimated. This book examines the relevant Caribbean legislation and case law together with the general principles of trusts law as applied in the English courts and other Commonwealth jurisdictions. This book is primarily for students reading for the LLB degree in various institutions of higher learning in the region. It will also be of interest to practitioners of trust law.
