In Europe, including in the United Kingdom, governments have established registries to record who is beneficially entitled to trust assets. There is likely to be pressure for Australia to adopt these measures in the near future. How would a trust registry work? What are the risks for trustees and beneficiaries if such a register is established? Are there any steps trustees should be considering in advance of the establishment of such a registry? Dr Glover will consider these and other issues in relation to the establishment of a trust registry.
