Hurricane Irma / BVI Trusts

8 September 2017

We understand that a state of emergency has been declared in the British Virgin Islands.  In some BVI trusts, an automatic change of trustee and jurisdiction is triggered by the declaration of a state of emergency.  If you are the trustee of a BVI trust or a beneficiary, you should check whether there are any emergency provisions, and if so their effect.  If you need assistance please contact Rupert Wilkinson or Tim Fullerlove on +44 (0) 1722 412 412.
