5 Reasons Why to Have an Offshore Bank Account

It's no secret that offshore banking offers many benefits.

 Here is just a few:

  1. Currency Diversification

    You may easily diversify your portfolio risk by holding foreign currencies. Moreover, currency diversification would also protect your purchasing power and internationalize your savings.

  2. Business Freedom

    You will stop being dependent on one country and one currency. More options equal more freedom.

  3. Higher Interest Rates

    Look abroad and you will find banks that offer significantly higher interest rates than what your current bank offers.

  4. Political Risk Mitigation

    The biggest risk to your savings poses government. We only can expect higher bank deposit taxes, capital controls, retirement savings nationalizations, among other damaging actions.

  5. Healthier Banking Systems

    Banks in stable jurisdictions offer low debt, they are very well capitalized, runned more conservatively and they usually keep more cash on hand.

Except the above mentioned advantages, most of offshore banks allow online bank account opening so you can open your new bank account from the comfort of your own home.
