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.

We ended 2018 in a funk. Investors were beginning to panic that the global economy was entering a period of sharp downturn, the US yield curve was close to inverting, the Chinese economy seemed to be in trouble, Europe was back in the doldrums and President Trump had engaged in a trade war with China and, at the same time, shut down a big chunk of the US government.

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.
