The Banker’s Quincecare duty – recent developments
The Quincecare duty requires banks not to execute a customer’s instructions where it knows, or should know, that the instructions may be a fraud on the customer. The duty is often pursued by insolvency practitioners who seek to swell an insolvent customer’s estate. In this presentation, Bridie McKinnon and Luke Sizer, both partners in Buddle Findlay’s litigation and insolvency teams, discuss the nature of the Quincecare duty, and the implications of recent decisions for the future of the duty in New Zealand.
