Jersey Sets Equity & Trust Precedent in an Application Request

By in

The Jersey Royal Court’s judgment in HSBC Trustee (CI) v Kwong (2018 JRC051A) gives guidance on the Jersey courts’ approach to publishing judgments where trustees have asked the court for directions in administering a legally valid and binding trust.

The court determined that, as the persons concerned were adults, the judgment should be published in full without anonymity on behalf of either party and age of consent will continue to be the determining factor.
