Trustee Act (Northern Ireland) 2001

Section 37: Power to insure

At present trustees have power to take out insurance cover in respect of trust property under section 19 of the Trustee Act (Northern Ireland) 1958 but that is limited to listed risks. Section 37 substitutes a new section 19 in the 1958 Act. This permits a trustee to insure trust property against risks of loss or damage due to any event and pay the premiums out of either income or capital funds. This power to insure applies to trusts whether created before or after its commencement.
