As U.S. and global information disclosure regimes proliferate in the wake of the Pandora Papers and other massive data leaks, using trusts in top-tier U.S. trust jurisdictions to obtain privacy and asset protection has never been more urgent for wealthy families around the world.

Recently, David Warren, Co-Founder and Chairman of Bridgeford Trust Company, presented “Modern U.S. Trust Law: Asset Protection and Privacy in a Transparent World.” We encourage you to watch the full presentation below as it discusses:

  • The Pandora Papers and other massive international data breaches and their impact on government regulation as well as calls for greater urgency around transparency in the financial services industry.
  • Information disclosure requirements, both domestically and internationally, with a discussion around the Corporate Transparency Act, FATCA, and CRS.
