According to section 18A of the Bermuda Children’s Act, there is no distinction as a matter of Bermuda law between children born inside and outside marriage. In other words, there is no such thing in Bermuda law as legitimate or illegitimate children - just children. Thus, a beneficial class in a Bermuda law trust which seeks to define the beneficial class on the basis of legitimacy is likely to be ineffective. It is said that this is a significant issue for settlers from certain regions and results in Bermuda being less than competitive. Can other contributors suggest a way in which Bermuda law could be reformed to allow foreign settlers to restrict the beneficial class in the way desired without challenging this fundamental issue of the equality of all children as a matter of Bermuda law?
