There are a number of different countries worldwide that have enacted trust legislation but the quality and suitability of that legislation can vary. When selecting the best jurisdiction for establishing a trust it is important that it should offer:
Some jurisdictions are not recommended due to legal or political
uncertainties or because their courts or professionals have limited trust experience. Other
jurisdictions, whilst being noted for their expertise, have not kept pace with the modern
trust legislation that offers additional benefits and protection to trust assets or are
unsuitable because of high tax regimes.
The Swedish Trust generally recommends that Gibraltar, Hong Kong, Guernsey, Malta, Singapore, Cyprus and the Isle of Man are among the best available options and The Swedish Trust is fully licensed to act as professional trustees in all these jurisdictions.
