The first major reform to trust law in the lifetime of most New Zealanders will occur on 30 January 2021 when the Trusts Act 2019 comes into force. All Advisers will need to come up to speed with the new provisions and Newpark will assist by providing Zoom study group sessions facilitated by Perpetual Guardian.

The Trusts Act 2019, which comes into force on 30 January 2021, is the first major trust law reform in New Zealand in 70 years.  Many of the key changes are aimed at making trust law more accessible to both Advisers and the public, strengthening the ability of beneficiaries to hold trustees to account.

The scheduled dates are:
Auckland / North 26 August at 10am
Auckland South 26 August at 2pm
Lower Nth Island 27 August at 10am
South Island 27 August at 2pm

There will be some pre-work required and we will have links for the Zoom sessions posted shortly.
