Abstract

The article examines the current law on the application of the rule in Keech v Sandford (1726) Sel Cas Ch 61 with a view to identifying its scope and ambit, and to argue that, despite earlier case law, it should be viewed today as an application of the broad principle of equity that a trustee or fiduciary must not make a profit out of the trust or his fiduciary position.
