March/April 2018: Calling IFAs – What you need to know about US connected clients

Feb/Mar/Apr 2018

Opportunities for IFAs to service US connected persons in the UK

There is an estimated $1 trillion in cash held by over 10 million US persons living outside of the United States. Since the implementation of FATCA, providing investment solutions for US expats has been increasingly problematic.

In addition, even if funds like UCITs will accept US connected investors, they are being treated as non-reporting PFICs (Passive Foreign Investment Company) and many investors are being taxed punitively.

Learn about solutions allowing expats of all types to access investment markets, and provide investment fund managers and client wealth advisors with an easy solution to the reporting complexities for these investors.

  • Do you have US clients that you’ve sold a PFIC product to?
  • Do you want to work with US connected people?
  • Do you have client’s who need to complete a US tax return?
  • Do you have US clients you want to do more business with?
  • Does your AML reporting actively identifying US persons?
  • Are your clients clear about FATCA reporting and Form W8-BEN?
  • Are you looking to grow your business?

Join our tax and financial planning experts to understand how we can help your business access this underserved market of Americans living in the UK, providing significant revenue and growth potential.
