The precise duties surrounding express trusts have caused issues enough (as we explore in this journal) – but what of the duties of resulting trustees? They have been considered in the authorities, and have been the subject of academic commentary, but have nevertheless remained somewhat opaque. A recent judgment in the Court of Appeal in Singapore (its highest court) has thoroughly traversed the principal English and Commonwealth authorities and collated the academic articles. It provides a comprehensive and valuable insight into the duties of resulting trustees.
