About the Webinar

A trustee is said to owe fiduciary obligations to the beneficiaries of a trust. However, what does this actually mean? And what remedies are available if a trustee is thought to have failed to discharge their duty? Has this all changed in light of Owie? This session will examine the duties of trustees from a wide perspective and look at issues including:

  • The source of various duties owed by trustees (e.g. those set out it in the trust deed and those imposed by law generally)
  • The rights and duties of appointors - do they owe fiduciary obligations? What are their duties?
  • What is the meant by ‘fraud on a power’ and the issues concerning trustee duties arising from the case of Hancock v Rinehart [2015] NSWSC 646
  • The importance of the choice of trustee and how to mitigate issues which may arise from their appointment
  • How the recent cases of Marcella and Owie have impacted trustee duties
  • Practical case studies
