Seychelles International Trust


What is the applicable law of the trust?

The International Trusts Act states that the law governing an international trust is the law chosen by the settlor to be the proper law of the trust, and this choice may be expressly stated in the trust deed, or implied. The one condition is that the trust must be created in such a way so that it would be considered valid under the law chosen to govern the trust. As the Seychelles International Trust Act is quite flexible it can be useful to select the Seychellois law as the governing law.

According to the International Trusts Act international trusts are valid and enforceable in Seychelles, and the Supreme Court of Seychelles shall have exclusive jurisdiction over cases involving Seychelles International Trusts.
