6 Reasons To Choose A Specialist International Financial Planner

When you need trustworthy financial advice, you naturally turn to a qualified professional who can deliver expert guidance to help you to make an informed decision. However, international financial advice is a different ball game. With cross-border issues, different regulations, and a myriad of products to consider, non-specialist financial advisers may not be best placed to offer the most incisive and relevant advice.

Instead, international financial advisers, such as the specialists at Arlo Group, can harness their extensive industry experience and knowledge of different tax systems to ensure you make the right decisions when managing your affairs. Here are six reasons why you should contact an international financial advisory:

1) Expertise On Different Types Of Pension

Whereas financial advisers often only have experience of UK pensions, international advisers can provide clients with information about transferring their pensions to overseas schemes such as QROPS, managing 401k/IRA plans, or setting up flexible international pensions to suit a fluid expats lifestyle.

2) Advice On Cross-Border Tax Planning And Dtas

With different tax systems and Double Taxation Arrangements (DTAs) complicating international finances, it pays to work with an expert who can assess the implications and ensure that tax rules are applied correctly but not unfairly. In contrast, a specialist with knowledge only of the UK tax system is unlikely to offer the clinical (and correct) advice required to minimise taxes and maximise benefits.

3) Offshore Trusts

Offshore trusts are a specialist area, so an international financial adviser can support UK beneficiaries and settlors with tax reporting requirements when investing in these schemes.

4) Knowledge Of Unique Rules In Different Jurisdictions

Each jurisdiction has unique financial regulations and tax laws, so providing sound financial advice is challenging for inexperienced advisers. International financial advisers boast a superior understanding of the international market, so are well-positioned to offer trustworthy and accurate advice.

5) Multi-Currency Investments

Investing in multi-currency portfolios is complex, as transaction amounts deposited are converted to the portfolio base rate currency using an exchange rate. All profits and taxable gains are calculated using the portfolio currency, so specialist knowledge of multi-currency investments is necessary to ensure the most advantageous investment decisions are made, as well as reducing the risk of exchange rate fluctuations.

6) A Thorough Understanding Of Unique Specialisms

Channel Islands’ registered pensions? Swedish Compliant Portfolio Bonds? FURBS/EFRBS? These are specialist areas of international finance about which many regular financial advisers would not be able to advise. An expert from an international financial advisory company is irreplaceable as they benefit from bespoke training and knowledge to provide outstanding advice in specialist areas.
