US Expat Investment Advice
It is unknown exactly how many US expats are currently living abroad. In 2016 the US State Department estimated there are 9 million U.S citizens living overseas, however, these numbers are open to challenge and can change quickly. On top of the normal concerns of education for children and where to live, living as a USA expat is made even more difficult by regulations covering U.S overseas assets. to combat this here is our USA Expats investment advice.
The introduction of The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) in 2010, has in essence, made US clients unwelcome at the vast number of non-US financial institutions. This, in turn, results in US expat investment advice being limited. Reasonably, the majority would like their finances to comply with both local, and US laws so they can invest carefree.
US Expat Investment Advice – Range of choice
The options available, quite simply, depends simply on the net worth of the individual. Any American expat with $10m plus can work with a few small private banks but, this is often subject to managing all of your assets in packaged solutions lacking the bespoke strategy you would expect.
US expats with $1m – $10m are even worse off, in recent years financial institutions, in reaction to both European and US legislation have severed connections with Americans, these include giants such as Merril Lynch and Fidelity.
What about self-directed investing you may ask? There are numerous drawbacks to this, one of the more poignant options being time!
The last group and probably the worst served is with liquid assets of under $1m. No private banks will work with you, very few wealth managers and who are expensive themselves. Yet, you still require a fully compliant solution allowing you to grow your hard earned monies.
