In European legal systems, a variety of approaches to trust and relationships of trust meet the universal professionalization of asset management services. This book explores that interface in order to seek a better understanding of the legal regulation of the entrustment of wealth. Within the methodology of the Common Core of European Private Law, the volume presents cases on the establishment and termination of management relationships, obligations of loyalty and of professionalism, and the choice of law.
