Finance Without The Nonsense!


We feel that expat investors are potentially far more vulnerable to bad and often fraudulent advice than they would be in their home countries, where you usually have some form of regulatory body to protect you.

When you are living away from home, that is not always the case and we have personally seen dozens of examples of mis-selling and recommendations for completely inappropriate financial products.

Frankly, it makes us sick.

We are passionate believers that people should get a fair deal when it comes to their finances and should not be taken advantage of, especially when you are putting trust in someone with your money.

In this blog, we want to offer our thoughts, experience and guidance, as well as some useful resources to help you negotiate this potential minefield.

You might find our style of writing very blunt, but we make no apologies for that - there is already too much fluff in the world and we don't feel the need or the desire to add to it.

You might not agree with our opinions, but feel free to comment and add to the discussions.

Are you currently living as an expatriate?

Do you have questions about your investment and financial planning opportunities whilst you are living and working abroad?

Have you signed up for (25 years) savings plans or (offshore bond) investments while you were an expat and now have questions or regret?

If you answered "Yes" to any of those questions, you will find helpful information here, but if you can't find what you are looking for, feel free to contact us.

We decided to start this website and blog, because there aren't so many places for expats to go to find useful, impartial and brutally honest information regarding any investment and financial planning matters they might face while living and working overseas.

Expats often get a really bad deal, falling victim to greedy financial advisors who are more concerned with their own financial gain than the interests of the client.

We think that's wrong and so we will do our best to impart some of the knowledge we have acquired from over two decades in the international financial services sector and help guide you through what can be a potential minefield.

We don't profess to have all the answers and we are open to being corrected on any matters where you believe we are wide of the mark. Check out the blog and feel free to add your comments to any of the posts.

If you're interested to see how we may be able to work together, feel free to drop us a line.
