Our offshore Investment Management services

  • Bespoke Portfolio Management

    If you’re looking to preserve or grow your wealth, but feel you don't have the knowledge, time or the appetite to manage your own investments, then this might be the ideal service for you. Bespoke Portfolio Management is a comprehensive and highly personalised service where you allow us to use our professional discretion and expert knowledge to manage all aspects of your investment portfolio.

  • Choice of Asset Classes

    Global reach means global choice in terms of your portfolio and we offer a wide range of international investment opportunities from global equities and foreign exchange to money markets, international bonds, alternative investments and structured products.

  • Wealth Structuring

    From tax planning, to retirement, legal, insurance, and estate planning, we can work with your existing external advisers, or assist you to source external specialists, in helping to structure your wealth.

Frequently asked questions

Perhaps you still have some questions about our International Investment Management service. The information below may give you the answers you want.

  • Do you provide offshore investment management services?

    Our team in Guernsey will deliver a wide range of personalised offshore investment services including portfolio lending and custody services. Your dedicated Investment Manager will arrange and oversee all services on your behalf.

  • If I’m UK-based can I use the International Investment service?

    Yes - for clients who have investment horizons that are broader than the UK market and that are prepared to tolerate the additional currency risk, a globally diverse portfolio can offer greater opportunity and diversity. 

  • Do I need an International service if I’m temporarily working abroad?

    Potentially yes. For UK nationals who are temporarily working abroad or that have an existing family account with members of that family now living abroad our International Investment Management service can be highly appropriate. We recommend you contact your tax advisor in this regard.

  • If I’m not domiciled in the UK can I use your International services?

    This will depend on the jurisdiction you are based in and we would be delighted to discuss in more detail.
