Which investments suit your lifestyle?
Your investment needs will be influenced by your lifestyle and the stage of life you are at.
A young professional will have different investment needs compared to a married couple approaching retirement. The needs would vary again if you are living overseas, in your home country, or looking to move between the two.
Tailoring investments to your lifestyle
We will seek to fully understand your lifestyle before tailoring an investment, financial planning and wealth protection solution to meet your unique needs. Barclays International offers a range of services and products that are designed to work with you as your circumstances and lifestyle change.
The following are fictitious case studies of international investment clients. To find out more about each one, click the respective link.
Living and working abroad, approaching retirement
John and Valerie bank offshore to take advantage of their tax status, and to ensure easy access to their cash as they move around the world.
We set up John and Valerie's investments to deliver a good income when they retire. Although we do not give tax advice we were able to work with John and Valerie’s own tax adviser so they could use our financial planning services to manage their inheritance tax, and set up trusts for their grandchildren.
