Head v Gould: ChD 1898

Kekewich J said: ‘On retiring from the trust and passing on the trust estate to their successors – and this is whether they appoint those successors or merely assign the property to the nominees of those who have the power of appointment – they are acting as trustees and it is equally incumbent on them in this ultimate act of office to fulfil the duty imposed upon them as at any other time.’
