Issue for this court
 This appeal concerns a tracing claim and an unjust enrichment claim. Tracing is the process used to determine what has happened to a person’s property (see Worthington, Fiduciary Duties and Proprietary Remedies  CLJ 720, 741). If a fiduciary steals trust money, the beneficiary can claim back the money, or any money or asset for which it has been substituted, from the person who has knowingly received it. A similar claim may be made in unjust enrichment.
