Investment involves risk. The value of investments and the income from them can go down as well as up and investors may not get back the amount originally invested. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future returns.The investments described here may not be suitable for all investors. Investors should make their own investment decisions based upon their own financial objectives and financial resources and, if in any doubt, should seek advice from an investment adviser.

There are many potential pitfalls for a US expat investing in the UK but it’s important you stay on track with your investments to meet your long-term financial goals, and our specialist investment management team is ready to help you do so.

Navigating the complexities of cross-border investing, as well as the rules around Passive Foreign Investment Companies (PFICs) and the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA)  makes investing for US expats even more challenging. So much so that it has led to many foreign financial institutions turning away US citizens.

Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management is an exception. We have been acting for US expats for many years. We understand the specific challenges you face and have the knowledge, experience and capability to make the right investment decisions on your behalf, while also taking responsibility for ensuring your investments are compliant across borders.

Dedicated US expat investment service

Our dedicated US Investor team provides a comprehensive investment management service exclusively for US citizens resident in the UK, including:

  • Specialist investment management tailored to your dual UK and US needs
  • Discretionary portfolio management in both US dollars and sterling
  • Dealing in US equity and fixed income markets as well as most global markets
  • Custody in the UK, Guernsey, Jersey or the Isle of Man
  • US tax year accounting in dollars
  • Provision for reporting income and trading activity for both US and UK tax years.

We take into consideration your:

  • US interests and worldwide assets, including your pension arrangements
  • Currency requirements and whether you want to hold investments in sterling, dollars, euros, other currencies, or a mix of several
  • Requirements for direct exposure to US markets, via municipal bonds or US equities
  • Your accounting needs.

As we do not offer tax advice, we will work closely with your tax, accountancy, or legal advisers to ensure your investments are compliant across jurisdictions and structured to enable the best possible outcomes for you.

Any tax benefits depend upon the investor’s individual circumstances and clients should discuss their financial arrangements with their own tax adviser before investing. The levels and basis of taxation may be subject to change in the future.
