Citibank Na and Another v QVT Financial Lp: CA 22 Jan 2007

Securitisation of Channel Tunnel debts.
The controlling noteholder of a series of notes issued by the company and secured by a trust deed argued that its extensive powers, while its notes remained outstanding, to direct the trustee of the trust deed how to exercise its discretion (for example, as to when to take enforcement action) diminished the role of the trustee below the irreducible core which a valid trust must have.
Held: The court rejected that argument by reference to various other powers which the trust deed vested in the trustee and the trustee’s obligation to act in good faith.
