More and more jursidictions are introducing private foundations as an alternative to trustsand practitioners are increasingly asked to advise clients on the intricacies of the developing law and the differences between jurisdictions.Private Foundations World Survey is the first survey book to consider comprehensively private foundations law and practice in each of the key jurisdictions. With a unique questionnaire format and summary factsheet for easy reference, it examines all the fundamental aspects of setting up andmaintaining a private foundation, with reference to relevant legislation and case law. The two expert editors, along with a team of leading international practitioners, cover an exhaustive range of topics, including protectors, taxation, alternatives to private foundations, forced heirship, divorce,asset protection, and migration of private foundations as well as anti-money laundering and KYC requirements.
