Expat Financial Advisers in France

If you are an expat in France your financial planning will need to meet your personal requirements within the very specific French tax and legal frameworks. Our internationally qualified, professional advisers are readily available to make certain you receive expert advice and superb service, bringing you peace of mind. A very important part of this service is to provide ongoing advice. This longer term approach means that you will continue to know that you will be in good financial shape even if your circumstances change, the tax laws change (which happens often) or simply if economic conditions change.

Whether you want to simply know the benefits of an Assurance Vie or QROPS (Qualifying Overseas Retirement Pension Scheme) currency issues or have more complicated matters you wish to discuss such as Residency or Inheritance tax in France and how it interacts with UK Inheritance Tax, contact one of our advisers to find out more.

We have offices and teams of experienced advisers based in and around a number of major centres throughout France:

Moving on from Brexit

Brexit created a number of well-documented issues for expatriates living in the EU.

Financial planning and wealth management were impacted heavily as the Withdrawal Agreement excluded financial services and specifically the passporting of advisory licences between the UK and EU. This means that many UK based advisers and institutions are no longer able to engage with clients living in the EU.

The Spectrum IFA Group is licensed across the entire EEA and can ensure that your finances are ‘Brexit-proof’, through access to secure, locally authorised, tax-efficient investment solutions.

In countries such as France, Spain, Italy, Luxembourg, Portugal and Malta, you have access to many flexible investment options backed by some of the UK’s largest and most well known financial institutions.

These products, issued from Dublin or Luxembourg, are both EU regulated and highly tax efficient. One of the largest insurance companies in the UK offers a fully French compliant (Dublin based) Assurance Vie. Similarly tax efficient products, designed for expatriates, are available to Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and Maltese residents.

As a result, you can still invest with companies whose names you know and trust, whilst ensuring compliance and tax-efficiency in the country you now call home.
