What is offshore investing?
'Offshore' means different things to different people and is often used within the context of financial services and banking. In its simplest form offshore means situated or registered abroad. In terms of banking it usually relates to banking in a different country or jurisdiction to your country of residence.
Investing offshore gives you access to an even wider range of international wealth management opportunities. And, depending on your individual circumstances, it can potentially also bring certain tax advantages which is particularly useful if you are an expatriate living and working in the UK.
Please note, Citi does not provide tax advice. We recommend that you seek independent professional tax advice.
