A prospective analysis of the proposed Belgian trust

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The Belgian Minister of Justice commissioned the reform of the Civil Code. An entirely new Book on the Belgian Law of Property was drafted. One of the most significant novelties proposed is the introduction of the fiducie (a civil law trust). It can be assumed that, if a jurisdiction introduces a new legal institution, one of the objectives is for that institution to be used extensively. This article therefore poses the question of whether or not the Belgian trust will be broadly used if the proposal is accepted; the article answers the question by using the analytical-synthetic and comparative methods (Mexico, England, and France).
