Offshore Investments

Offshore investments are an attractive option when a parent has provided capital to a minor. They can also be a favoured choice for those who expect their marginal rate of tax to fall. Investors, entitled to an age-related allowance or expatriates investing while non-resident could also benefit from making offshore investments.

St. James's Place offers a range of offshore solutions, designed for investors who would like to invest regularly, or as a one-off lump sum.

Why set up offshore investments?

  • Maximise growth prospects
  • Spread risk
  • Enjoy access to a range of carefully selected and monitored Investment Managers
  • Choose a regular and predictable 'income'
  • Switch between funds easily
  • Reduce your personal liability to Income and Capital Gains Taxes

The information presented is based on existing legislation and HM Revenue & Customs practice. It does not amount to tax planning advice. Any potential investor who is unsure of their tax position is recommended to take advice before investing.

The value of an investment with St. James's Place will be directly linked to the performance of the funds you select, and the value could therefore go down as well as up. You may get back less than you initially invested.

Currency movements may also affect the value of investments.

The levels and bases of taxation and reliefs from taxation can change at any time and are dependent on individual circumstances.
