Our all-encompassing financial planning process for US citizens and Green Card holders concentrates on both tax optimisation investment strategies and tax efficient structuring.

Most wealthy families have the same goal: they want to grow their assets steadily over time without taking on significant risk. It sounds simple, but all too frequently expat Americans find themselves victims of an incoherent and disjointed approach brought about by having assets, in different countries, managed by different managers, without a single view across them all.
The US Family Office specialises in helping international Americans organise their affairs into a coherent global strategy, invest their assets for preservation and growth within the various regulatory frameworks and provide clear and concise reporting.
Our all-encompassing financial planning process concentrates on both tax optimisation investment strategies and tax efficient structuring.
THE CHALLENGES FOR EXPAT AMERICANS
We feel there are three key considerations to ensure you get the most from your wealth, irrespective of where it is located.
Too often, investments across the world are treated as if they are mutually exclusive. Each account is treated as a separate silo with no one taking a step back and thinking how it all fits together.
For an international American family, treating each investment account in isolation doesn’t work: there should be a single global strategy in place, marrying asset allocation and currency allocation and ensuring compliance with various tax regimes.
This might seem like a fairly obvious thing to say however this is not to do with the individual assets bought but more how they are managed. As wealth managers of international families we must look globally and understand the implications of our investment decisions in every reporting country. Is that Dollar loss really a Sterling gain?
US information talks in USD and on a calendar year basis but the UK reports in GBP from the 6th – 5th April. At best a UK accountant will have a good knowledge of the US and know what they are looking at, at worst this will be completely alien.
International American families need knowledgeable and experienced advisers and consolidated reporting information on all their assets in the correct format for both the US and UK tax filings, saving time, cost and complication.

BORDERLESS WEALTH MANAGEMENT
True wealth frees you from the physical constraints of borders.
Today’s wealthy families and individuals don’t just travel and live internationally… they have multiple locations globally that they think of as home. This changes over time as they expand their horizons and explore.
Wealth managers need to offer a service that reflects this reality, but a surprising number of them don’t.
