Why invest in Jersey Offshore Banking? Explore the benefits of an Offshore Account.

Investing internationally through Jersey

Secure, personal, international

Jersey is well-established as a leading offshore financial centre and has long been a key base for offshore banking and private wealth management.

If you are an expatriate living and working away from your home, there may be tax advantages to investing in Jersey, and managing your wealth via an offshore account. By holding some of your wealth outside your own country with Citi International Personal Bank, it may be possible to make the most of these advantages, while benefitting from the security of investing through a stable market.

Jersey offshore banking

As one of the Channel Islands, Jersey operates in a jurisdiction close to but outside of the UK and continental Europe, and offers a high level of security with tightly-controlled regulation from the Jersey Financial Services Commission (JFSC). It is the largest and most established of the Channel Islands in terms of financial services, particularly in the fund management sector where it is a world leader.

Over one in nine of the island's population is a financial services professional and many banks, investment management companies and brokers have chosen the centre as a base because it is politically and economically stable. Over £154.9bn is deposited on the island at one time and well over half of these funds are in foreign currencies.

Tax advantages

Whether or not you can reduce your tax liabilities by investing through Jersey is completely dependent on your personal and financial circumstances. These include where you live (your residence), and where you are from or pay your tax (your domicile), which may or may not be in a different country. It also depends on how you are investing and withdrawing your money – as a lump sum or as regular income for example. All of these factors have an impact but expatriates in particular may benefit from managing their money via Jersey offshore banking.
