Have you ever considered the Isle of Man for opening an offshore investment account

Click play to hear Business Development Consultant, Aidan O’Shea, explain some of the potential benefits of the Isle of Man as an offshore jurisdiction and as a location to hold your assets securely.

Hi, my name is Aidan. Today, we're going to run through why the Isle of Man is a great place to hold an offshore investment account.

1.    Global Access

Holding your assets here in the Isle of Man is like having access to financial suitcase. Rather than dragging that suitcase around the world with you, you can place it here in the Isle of Man, a safe, secure jurisdiction, and you can access that wherever you may be in the world.

2.    Regulation

Capital International is regulated by the Isle of Man Financial Services Authority (or the FSA). The FSA provide the robust regulatory framework, which we must abide by. We are checked independently by external auditors, as well as the FSA on an ongoing basis to ensure a client's assets are held securely and they are also treated fairly.

3.    Stability

Clients often seek a secure and stable environment to hold their wealth. The Isle of Man has the longest continuous parliament in the world, ensuring political stability built over generations, which can be attractive to international clients when they come to consider investment opportunities. 

 4.    Investor Protection

Investor protection is an important aspect of an investment platform. While Capital International has been around for over 25 years, clients want to feel that their assets are safe and secure with us. We utilise a nominee structure to hold client assets segregated away from our own balance sheet. So, in the event of Capital International ever defaulting, your assets can't be touched by creditors or liquidators.

5.    Lifestyle

With the quality of life we have here on the island, you are rarely going to find me in a bad mood on a Monday morning!
