A Tax Holiday in Canada?

Contributed by SovereignGroup.com, 24 July, 2013

Simply put, Canada is a great country. Canada is by far one of the most attractive places for immigration, both for skilled migrants and investors. The country consistently ranks among the highest on the United Nations Human Development Index (HDI), which examines the health, education and wealth of each nation’s citizens according to life expectancy, educational achievement and standard of living. This indicates that Canada has some of the best-educated people and one of the highest literacy rates in the world. It is the second largest country in the world and is rich with natural resources, yet it has a population of only about 35 million people. Read Full Article »

Jurisdiction Special Focus: Barbados

Jurisdiction Special Focus: Barbados

by Investors Offshore Editorial, May 2013, 10 May, 2013

This feature focuses on the Caribbean island of Barbados. More famous for its beaches and as a destination for millions of tourists than as a location for offshore business, Barbados has nonetheless developed a well regulated financial services industry offering a surprisingly wide array of offshore products from banking to trusts to insurance. Whilst the island is not quite on a par with the higher profile offshore centres in the region, such as Bermuda or the Cayman Islands, for the investor, Barbados offers economic and political stability along with a number of tax and investment incentives, and close economic ties with the United States.

Global Insurance for Expats

Global Insurance for Expats

Investors Offshore Editorial Team, December, 2012, 21 December, 2012

Insurance is one of those things that everyone hopes they'll never need, and as a result, a frightening number choose to bury their heads in the sand, hoping that their luck will hold. However, by far the most sensible solution for those not willing to trust to fate, is to take out some form of insurance, to protect themselves and their dependants should the worst happen.
