P urpose Trusts STAR Trusts (known in other jurisdictions as purpose trusts) have been available for use in the Cayman Islands since 1997 following the enactment of the Special Trusts (Alternative Regime) Law, 1997, which has since been incorporated into the Trusts Law (revised) (the “Law”). The introduction of the STAR Trust regime represented a huge shift in the potential uses for Cayman trusts, resulting in a highly adaptable tool for settlers which allows much greater flexibility in structuring possibilities, subject of course to the STAR Trust’s purpose(s) being lawful and not contrary to public policy. The uses for STAR Trusts will continue to evolve and grow, limited only by the creativity of settlors, lawyers and trustees, but the main benefits of their use will be the flexibility and confidentiality afforded by their use.

P rivate Trust Companies Private Trust Companies (PTCs) are companies incorporated to act as trustee of a trust or a number of related trusts, for example with the same settlor or related settlors. They are not able to provide trust services to or solicit business from the general public. PTCs are very popular among HNW/UHNW clients who desire a level of influence over, or at least a greater involvement in, the administration of the trusts under the control of the PTC, such as, for example (and subject to tax considerations) by appointing family members or trusted family advisers to the board of directors of the PTC. PTCs are therefore a good place to start when considering establishing a family office or a complex wealth management structure for the administration of a family’s various interests and have proven especially popular where a patriarch wants a continued involvement in the direction of the family business. The PTC acts as trustee of the family trust(s)/connected trusts and generally instructs a Cayman service provider such as IMS to provide some or all of the directors to the PTC and/or provide secretarial services and prepare accounts etc.
