Pensions - QROPS, QNUPS, SIPPs and SSAS

by the Investors Offshore editorial team, November, 2012 , 23 November, 2012

Annuity rates are falling so fast that anything but a really large pension pot will hardly deliver enough income to pay for the family car, never mind that cruise they had set their hearts on.

Forex Review

by the Investors Offshore Editorial Team, November, 2012 , 02 November, 2012

For some of us, the forex, or foreign exchange, market is something we only encounter when going on holiday abroad, and many of us will often be heard to grumble that our pound/dollar/euro doesn’t go as far as it used to. However, for expats living or working temporarily overseas, as well as for companies transacting across borders, managing currency risk is crucial to ensure that income and profits are not gobbled up by volatile exchange rates and transaction costs.

Second Citizenship and Immigration Programmes

by the Investors Offshore Editorial Team, September 2012, 28 September, 2012

Rapid advances in communication technologies and international travel coupled with the ongoing process of globalisation have made the world a much smaller place, so that now it is possible work, invest, or start a business in more countries than ever. On the other hand, the erosion of privacy has become a major concern, while the tax man has probably never been so powerful, and plenty of potentially nasty traps lay in wait for the investor with international horizons.
