We're here to help with your investment decisions.
International wealth expertise
Our Wealth Managers help expats living and working around the world, at all stages of expat life. Many of our Wealth Managers are expats themselves, so we understand how hard expats work for their money, and the sacrifices they and their families have to make.
Get started with a financial review
The way you manage your money now could have a big impact on your future. Our priority is to understand what's going on in your life - and where you'd like to be in 5, 10, or even 50 years. Whether you're looking for a comfortable retirement, to secure the best start in life for your children, or simply want to make the most of your disposable income, we could help you make financial decisions that suit your current needs and future aspirations.
Reviewing your finances with one of our experienced wealth advisers can be the first step in helping you to achieve your goals.
What happens during a financial review?
- Getting to know youWe'll look at the complete picture, and discuss everything from your current savings and investments, to financial goals and plans for the future which helps us recommend the right solutions for you.
- Discovering your optionsWe'll discuss the proposals for you which will capture protection and investment solutions, as appropriate. Any investment recommendations will reflect the level of risk you're prepared to take to achieve your financial goals.
- Discussing your planWe'll compile a financial plan with recommendations1, based on the information you've provided. You'll be able to discuss your financial plan and ask any questions you may have at this stage.
- Taking actionWe'll send our recommendations in writing and arrange a follow up meeting to discuss the content, answering any further questions you may have. If you're happy to go ahead, your Wealth Manager will put your agreed plan into action.
1We will advise and make a recommendation for you after we have assessed your needs. We offer advice on limited types of products which we offer from a limited number of companies. Details of the costs of the products or services we recommend you will be supplied to you in the Financial Planning Report.
How we continue to support you
Following your initial financial review and setting up your investment portfolio, you'll receive ongoing advice and support from your Wealth Manager. Because they've helped you build your portfolio, they understand your situation and your approach to investing.
Many things can change in an expat's life - promotion, relocation, starting a family, taking early retirement. All these factors have an impact on your financial plans and the way your portfolio should be structured. That's why regular reviews are essential, so we can check your investments are on target. You can call your wealth manager whenever you want to discuss your portfolio and check how your investments are performing.
Your Wealth Manager can set up AssetMaster2 which is an administration service that streamlines the buying, selling and switching of your investments.
With AssetMaster you can:
- apply for investments and transfer assets with minimal paperwork
- instruct us to buy or switch funds via email
- sell funds via online banking
- maintain a single point of contact for your investment transactions
- consolidate your valuations for a portfolio view
- view the value of your portfolio via online banking
2AssetMaster is an administration service, not an asset management service. Not all countries are covered by the service - and some investments are excluded, such as stock market traded shares/funds, bank deposits and some collective investment schemes. Applications to transfer current or future investments into the service will be evaluated on an individual basis.

Please remember that the value of investments is not guaranteed and you may not get back the amount you invested, and any income received from them can fall as well as rise. This could also happen as a result of changes in currency exchange rates, particularly where overseas securities are held or where investments are converted from one currency to another. We always recommend that any investments held should be viewed as a medium to long-term investment, at least five years.
