Stress Factors of Expatriates

Packing up and moving to a country of your dreams, be it for personal or professional reasons, can be an exciting adventure.

In reality, the majority of offshore banking happens every day in many different countries and jurisdictions, that is legitimate 'business as usual' for thousands of domestic and international companies and wealthy individuals. Indeed, offshore banking is what makes much of business and financial world move around - an innevitable part of the international trade.

Offshore Bank Accounts

It's not illegal to open an offshore bank account, as many people wrongly believe it. The importance of opening an account offshore, when done correctly and legally, is that it's often safer when compared to domestic banking. Most of overseas banks offer privacy and security guarantees, making your assets better protected. You are less exposed to potential lawsuits, unfriendly creditors, and opportunistic spouses.

Another benefit of opening an offshore bank account is that many offshore banks will offer you higher interest rates on your savings or operating capital, when compared to your domestic banks.

In the USA and most of the European banks, the government is in control of your assets thus they can freeze your assets and bank account when it suits them. Often this is done for political reasons, rather than criminal prosecution. It becomes therefore important to look for friendly jurisdictions where you can legally expatriate some of your money and assets, to ensure better protection for you and your loved ones.
