The combined effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on public health, the global economy, and social behavior is expected to provoke much deeper shifts in our human geography around the world, future redistribution of income and wealth at both macro and micro levels, and the manner of running the local or international businesses. There are many reasons why offshore banking is gaining importance and attracts more customers participating in some economic citizenship program, or just safeguarding and extending their business interests. Opening an offshore account is a well-balanced encouraging perspective. However, there are some considerations prudent people should have in mind, when negotiating with a foreign bank outside the country of their residence.
In recent years, many companies registered in former tax havens have encountered difficulties opening international offshore bank and brokerage accounts. Modern fintech companies headquartered in old world ‘advance economies’ enjoy many virtues (top-notch mobile applications, fast opening of accounts, multi-currency debit cards, instant transfers in the European Zone (SEPA), in the U.S., etc.). However, till recent times such banking services have been hardly available to offshore entities with non-resident status, especially when those registered in former offshore countries.

We are aware of your immediate questions about offshore accounts, so we are pleased to share with you the following good news.
There is one international bank that has decided to break outdated stereotypes and walk an extra mile for the sake of every customer. It is a modern Caribbean bank with European roots and principles of Austrian and Swiss private banking traditions. It offers services to offshore companies and even operates in cryptocurrencies. It is highly likely that its services are just what you need to settle your financial matters.
Why is this news exciting?
The Scope and Integrity of Corporate Banking
The main benefits of the Caribbean bank are:
- The full range of commercial and private banking services
- Strict but reasonable compliance rules and the lightning-fast AML/KYC verification by the compliance team
- Multicurrency International Accounts (IBAN) for Single Euro Payment Area (SEPA) and S.W.I.F.T.
- Generally accepted debit cards
- Fast money transfers around the world
- Excellent security of the account access and data protection
- Complete set of online banking tools and online applications (you can work from your laptop or smartphone without compromising functionality)
- Full support to crypto-assets transactions
- Friendly and competent support staff
- No need for huge initial deposits, and no need to maintain a minimum balance in your account.
We believe that such an attractive business-friendly offer from the bank should have appeared long ago, as there was too much demand for such a range of services. Therefore, it was only a matter of time before someone at the banking management top-level would become aware of the ever-growing international demand for excellent offshore commercial banking services not requiring to open and keep huge deposits.
Indeed, rather than trying to compete in the crowded space of private banking and asset management, a new bank can channel its resources to offshore corporate banking, i.e. a much less competitive environment.
Such foresight is going to gain even more importance in the nearest future, as it is quite clear that once the COVID-19 quarantines are lifted and airline prices drop down to rock bottom, more and more people across the globe will need offshore accounts and second passports. Some will need offshore banking for better asset protection, or global diversification, or to get access to foreign investments. Perhaps even more people will buy one-way tickets to countries affordable and convenient enough to start fresh.
The new offshore bank we are introducing to you was founded only last year, but it can be proud of its board of directors including a royal celebrity among its members. It is designed as a top debit card issuer for the fast opening of accounts and destined to become one of the best financial institutions.
The recent years have seen several interesting launches of offshore commercial banks. But, as a rule, they could not advance their success because of correspondent banking relationship challenges. For example, Bank of Asia, an offshore bank recently launched in the British Virgin Islands, has become one of such disappointments.
However, the new and alternative offshore bank, which is our Caribbean hope, has solved the problem of correspondent banking through an intelligent hybrid approach. Instead of trying to open correspondent accounts directly on their own, they established sustainability and sufficiency principles in their money transfer system by integrating several businesses in Europe and Hong Kong in a single group. This group is headquartered in Austria, networks with many private bankers across Europe, and relies on the tough compliance team in Vienna.
This well-financed and professional group has acquired a nearly 50-year-old Swiss asset management company with a banking license in the best offshore banking economy in the English-speaking Caribbean region. Furthermore, the group launched operations in the UK and then in Luxembourg, thus reaching out to high-quality European correspondent banks. The group’s next destination was Hong Kong, which has opened its access to the Asian market.
Whereas their fees are quite high, the good news is that their very fast service of the opening of foreign accounts within just 24-48 hours is based on an internal compliance review and does not require any minimum deposit.
They open bank accounts for offshore companies as well as personal accounts, and conduct traditional private banking transactions through European custodial banks.
