Case Study 03 - Highest Privacy


Mr Vadim Schmidt sought disclosure of accounts and information in relation to two trusts set up by his father, who had died intestate. Rosewood Trustee Ltd was the trustee of the two relevant trusts. The defendant trustee argued that Schmidt was not entitled to the disclosure of the trust documents because he did not have a proprietary interest under the trust. Nor had his father been the settlor under the trust, which had been executed by Pacquerette Ltd as settlor (the nominee of Mr Schmidt).

Benefit of Trust

Trust is a high-standard legal arrangement, inheritance information does not become public records like a will, and the wealth will be kept in a legal, safe and private structure. After the establishment of a family trust, the management and use of the trust property are carried out in the name of the trustee. Except for special circumstances, the trustee has no right to disclose the operation of the family trust property any extreme party.

Note: The beneficiary has the right to request the disclosure of the trust file, but it is best to treat this right as an exchange of the court's inherent jurisdiction. , the court supervises and intervenes in trust management as appropriate.
