Services for US citizens in the UK

Navigating the complexities of cross-border investing needs diligent planning. To start with, the rules around Passive Foreign Investment Companies (PFICs) are raising high hurdles for Americans in the UK who want to invest wisely and efficiently. On top of that, the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) has made managing your investments even more complex.

At Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management, we provide a comprehensive investment management service specifically designed for US citizens resident in the UK. We deal in US equity and fixed income markets, and have extensive research teams in North America and London.

Our services include:

  • Specialist investment management designed around your needs
  • Discretionary or advisory portfolio management
  • Custody in the UK, Guernsey, Jersey, Isle of Man or New York
  • US tax year accounting in dollars
  • US-compliant individual retirement accounts (IRAs)
  • Tax reporting documents required by the IRS.

As we don't offer tax advice, we will work closely with your tax, accountancy or legal advisers, to make sure the decisions we make on your behalf dovetail with the arrangements they've set up for you.

Some of these services are provided by Pershing Securities LLC New York.

Why choose our services for US citizens?

  • You will benefit from our in-depth investment expertise
  • Our specialist team has over 50 years' combined experience of managing assets for US expats
  • We offer a choice of discretionary or advisory investment management in both US dollars and sterling, to ensure your investments work efficiently from both a UK and US tax perspective.

Investment market update - keeping some perspective

We believed that the investment landscape was not as bleak as some market participants were suggesting at the end of 2018, and it is encouraging that investors have now seemingly adopted a much more positive mindset, as evidenced by the sharp recovery in equity markets since their December lows. So, has anything substantial changed in investment markets since the end of last year?

Positioning investment portfolios for slowing growth and political uncertainty in 2019

After a turbulent fourth quarter in 2018 that provided a particularly disappointing end to the year (where, for 2018 as a whole, equity markets fell and bonds and cash eked out only meagre positive returns), our attention now turns to how to position investment portfolios for 2019.

IMPORTANT: Investment involves risk. The value of investments and the income from them can go down as well as up and you may not get back the amount originally invested. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance.
