Shares in trust
Shares held in trust for another person are usually registered in the name of the trustees, who have full power to deal with them subject to the provisions of the trust deed. As no indication of the trust can appear in the company’s share register, the company cannot prevent wrongful dealing by the trustees, but notice in lieu of distringas.
