Specialist Financial Advice to Expatriates across Europe

Our expertise covers Retirement and Pension Planning including QROPS, Life Assurance, Efficient Investing (using Insurance wrappers), Succession and Inheritance Tax Planning, Currency Exchange and much more.

In today’s world of finance one thing is clear, we all have to pay attention to and take great care of our own finances. Spectrum advisers are here to help you, our clients, with the many complex financial and tax issues you are confronted with: retirement and pension planning including QROPS, Life Assurance, efficient investing (using Insurance wrappers), succession and inheritance tax planning, currency exchange and many more. As for most expatriates, these planning issues may exist in more than one country, and we believe working with experienced, qualified, cross border advisers who are themselves expatriates, and therefore facing similar challenges, is really important.

At Spectrum we believe clients should not leave their finances entirely in the hands of a third party, a banker, an investment manager or an adviser.  We want our clients to stay involved and work with us to ensure they continue to prosper. We put an emphasis on continued financial advice and support with some of our clients having worked with their adviser for more than 15 years.

Our commitment to long term business relationships allows us to provide advice and reassurance during the inevitable changes in tax rules, movements in exchange rates and markets.

Latest Financial News for Expats in Europe

BREXIT Proof your Investments

The UK formally left the EU on the 31st January 2020 and there followed a transition period which ended on the 31st December. There are now agreements in place governing various aspects of how the UK and the EU will interact in future. However, financial services were not included in the withdrawal agreement (the ‘trade deal’), so UK based financial advisers and institutions can no longer advise their EU resident clients without also having an appropriately authorised presence in the EU. This is not an issue for The Spectrum IFA Group, since we have always been fully regulated and authorised across the entire EU.

If you live in France, Spain or Luxembourg, did you know that you have access to secure, tax-efficient, locally authorised investment solutions backed by some of the UK’s largest and most well-known financial institutions.

These products, issued from the safety of Dublin, are both EU regulated and highly tax efficient. For example, one of the largest insurance companies in the UK offers a fully French compliant (Dublin based) Assurance Vie. Another offers a Branch 23 product, which is similarly tax efficient in Belgium. Both companies offer tax efficient solutions for Spanish residents.

Even though the UK has left the EU, you can still invest with companies whose names you know and trust, in a tax efficient manner, in the country you now call home.
