Jersey: More Than Just a Finance Centre?

Expat Briefing Editorial Team, 16 October, 2013

Malta Opens Door To Expats

Expat Briefing Editorial Team, 03 July, 2013

Like many places around the Med, those who have holidayed in Malta often return to buy second homes on the island, or to settle there on a long-term or permanent basis, particularly those hailing from cold northern European climes.

Investors Offshore Special Reports: Panama

by Investors Offshore editorial staff, April 2013, 12 April, 2013

Ask most people around the world their thoughts on Panama and you would probably be met with the same one word reply: canal. However, after a small amount of further investigation you would find that this country at the gateway of Central and South America certainly isn't as one dimensional as that. Aided by stable, pro-business governments using the invaluable canal as a catalyst, Panama's friendly tax and regulation system has helped to established the country as one of the most modern and respectable business and financial centres outside the established 'onshore' countries, and ranks as probably the most important trading and business hub in the region.

The largest and most southerly of the Channel Islands between England and France, Jersey is a self-governing British Crown Dependency, with a population of around 95,000 (July 2012 est.) expatriates and residents.
