While all our investment structures and advice is compliant with tax regulations, circumstances may dictate that specialist tax advice is required.

International property is an important element of diversifying your investment portfolio.

Because you are a member of Carrick Concierge, our partner can also assist you to leverage your property investment through international mortgage finance should this be required.
Offshore Bank Accounts
An offshore bank account can be the first step in establishing an international financial portfolio and the freedom to transact in the international domain. It gives you access to hard currency for international expenses, debit orders, internet banking transfers and freedom to access funds while travelling. An international account also provides protection against currency volatility and/or political risk.
A Trust is a widely used and well-established way of protecting and enhancing a family’s wealth. Trusts also facilitate the safe and efficient passage of such wealth to your beneficiaries. Carrick has partnered with some of the world’s leading Trust providers with expertise in setting up offshore trusts in stable, highly regulated jurisdictions.
When considering purchasing a property overseas or remortgaging an existing property, researching for the best rates can be time consuming and fraught with reams of paperwork.
