Modern day trust structures presentation

Published on 17 Oct 08

Note: This presentation was delivered at both the Victorian and Tasmanian Conventions in 2008 (9-11 October and 17-18 October respectively).

This presentation considers some of the fundamental concepts underlying the trust relationship and considers how they relate to the modern day trust structure. Issues addressed include:

  • is the concept of the substratum of a trust still relevant?
  • mere, trust, general, special, hybrid and dispositive powers - what are they and why is the distinction important?
  • consideration of the fiduciary obligation of trustees
  • beneficiaries of a discretionary trust as discretionary objects - significance?
  • an overview of income for the purposes of Division 6 and its application for a modern trust structure.
