British expatriates have far cheaper investment options than getting stuck with expensive, inflexible offshore pensions, such as those provided by Friends Provident, Generali Vision and Royal Skandia.
Instead of paying roughly 4% or more each year, index investors could pay 1/12th of this cost. And unlike most offshore pensions, they could sell their indexes whenever they wish.
So how do you do it?
I’ve updated the post about How British Expatriates Can Invest Using Index Funds in Singapore.
By purchasing such products through Saxo Capital Markets in Singapore, investors wouldn’t have to pay capital gains taxes when the portfolio makes money. At the end of the post, I linked to a screencast, created by British school teacher Sean McHugh. He shows how British investors could make such purchases in an easy to follow tutorial.
