This Article will focus on two major areas of inquiry in contemporary English trust law: fiduciary standards and substantive trust law. In Part II it will cover the trustees' exercise of managerial discretions and of distributive discretions, before considering the role and duties of protectors in relation thereto. In Part III it will focus upon spendthrift and other protective trusts, the termination of trust rules, the hesitancy to invoke public policy to invalidate conditions imposed by settlors, and difficulties in ascertaining whether a proper valid trust has been created.
