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.
