Offshore Banks

A collection of independent reviews from our panel of experts

Unbiased reviews direct from our experts

Our independent reviews are designed to help expatriates and international investors make the best financial decisions for the benefit of their wealth. The reviews of offshore banks include many traditional, well-known brands such as HSBC Expat, Lloyds International and Barclays - as well as some lesser known alternatives such as the international offering from Nedbank - the Focus Account.

Our independent reviews are our own opinions on the offshore bank accounts and service providers most commonly used by international investors and expats. We also feature customer reviews of the banks we discuss, so you have the benefit of others' opinions to guide your decision-making.

Each review below gets an AES rating and comes with a generous topping of helpful information on the features and benefits associated with it. We also discuss the pros and cons and answer frequently asked questions.

If you're wondering whether you need an offshore bank account, read about the features and benefits on our offshore banking page.  Alternatively, contact us to discuss your requirements, and we'll be happy to assist.
