(Global) Comparison of Trusts in the BVI, Cayman, Guernsey and Jersey

The decision as to where to establish an offshore trust can only be made based on the specific requirements of the client. It is not possible to make an assertion that one jurisdiction is always more appropriate than another. This note does not therefore attempt to guide the reader to any one jurisdiction over another. Instead it highlights some of the features which Cayman, BVI, Guernsey and Jersey and have in common and where they are different. It also describes certain of the legal requirements in respect of trusts in each jurisdiction and examines some of the factors to consider when deciding which jurisdiction to use.
