Many expats use their bank accounts to build up their savings, but with interest rates so low at present, once you take inflation and rising living costs into account, it is often the case that these savings are standing still at best.
With an ever-growing number of professionals opting for a transient lifestyle, the desire to invest in an international or ‘offshore’ manner is becoming an increasingly popular method for expat lump sum investments and portfolio management.
The key driver for this is that many expatriates want to avoid the situation where they have ‘bits and bobs’ of investments scattered around the world. They lose track of what is invested where and are, often, presented with logistical issues when attempting to gain access to, or manage, the investment after they leave that particular place. Offshore investing irradiates these irritations. Furthermore, the potential tax efficiency of the international investment centres are often seen as an ‘added bonus’ for those individuals who make use of these investment areas.
Our lump sum investment products and portfolio management services are personalised to each and every client, depending on such criteria as investment term, amount and your attitude to risk.
