Kelvin F.K. Low: Trusts of Cryptoassets (December 15, 2020)

Kelvin F.K. Low, of the City University of Hong Kong, has made available for download his article, “Trusts of Cryptoassets,” published in the Trust Law International and Trusts and Private Wealth Management: Developments and Directions (Cambridge University Press, 2021). The abstract is as followed:

First, can cryptoassets be the subject-matter of trusts? Secondly, if so, how may the rules relating to validity be applied to cryptoassets? Thirdly, is such an investment permitted under the terms and/or governing law of a particular trust? Finally, what must trustees be aware of in deciding whether to invest in this new asset class?
