La fiducie et l'entrepreneur

Abstract : The fiducie is a trust-like device that was introduced into French law by a statute of February 19th, 2007. Defined by Article 2011 of the Civil Code, it allows a grantor to temporarily transfer property to a fiduciaire that will not personally benefit from it. The fiducie is a sui generis device that was conceived for asset management and securitization purposes. Yet, nearly ten years after its enactment it remains rarely used. This scarcity can be explained by both the rigidity of its legal regime and its inadequacy for French entrepreneurs. As people who carry out managerial duties in firms that they partially or totally own, entrepreneurs should be particularly interested in using the fiducie for they face personal and professional issues which can be tackled by trust law in foreign jurisdictions. The inadequacy of its current regime is all the more problematic as French law offers various mechanisms that can produce similar legal consequences. Therefore, in order to develop the fiducie, one must renovate its regime with the objective of being useful to entrepreneurs.
