Expats can stay strong in face of Brexit

However, these are the salient points to keep in mind:

  • Blacktower’s clients should be reassured that for now they retain the same residency status and healthcare benefits as they did prior to the Brexit vote.
  • Tax treaties, investments and financial arrangements are not dependent on the EU but on both individual wealth management firms and individual member states, Blacktower’s members should feel confident in moving towards the future.
  • Blacktower is in a strong position to take advantage of any volatility in the market and expects to be able to benefit from any opportunities which present themselves, such as the ability to make favourable purchases of high quality companies with solid dividends.
  • Blacktower operates right across the EU, including France, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, the Canary Islands, Gibraltar, Grand Cayman as well as the UK. In the short to medium term our wealth management services and financial advice will not be affected by the Brexit vote and we look forward to serving the needs of our clients whatever the future may hold.

Unfortunately, it can be difficult to find an expat financial adviser who understands all the regulatory and cross-border wealth planning issues at stake.
