Offshore Banking

Our Top Sites

A selection of offshore banking sites for those living or working overseas, and require the financial security and tax advantages of an international bank offering a selection of banking products and services.

Citibank Ribbon1


With the Citigold current account, you can transfer money seamlessly around the world with fee-free switches to/from your local Citibank accounts and up to 8 fee-free SWIFT payments to other accounts each month too. The account is free if you hold large enough deposits or investments; otherwise there is a monthly fee to be taken into account. View Site »

Lloyds Bank Ribbon2

Lloyds Bank

Get a multi-currency international current account through Lloyds Bank and get debit cards for Sterling, Euro and US Dollar to avoid card charges in these countries. Lloyds will also never charge you for transfers in and out of your account (local banks may charge fees for incoming or outgoing transactions). You will need either a substantial annual income or a large lump sum to be eligible for an account. View Site »

Santander Ribbon3


Earn interest on your offshore current account balance and benefit from a deferred-debit card which means you only pay for transactions on the last day of each month (meaning the money is still working for you until then). Each account can be in one of three currencies so you will have to open multiple accounts if you need to access your money in more than one denomination. View Site »

Standard Bank Ribbon4

Standard Bank

With no minimum income requirement, the Optimum offshore current account from Standard Bank is one of the more accessible options (a minimum opening balance is required and the account is only free if this level is maintained). You can also link this to an international savings account with attractive interest rates if you are prepared to give significant notice beforehand. View Site »

Investec Ribbon5


For the best offshore savings accounts, Investec is a serious contender worth looking into. With the ability to open accounts in up to 10 different currencies and competitive rates of interest on their notice and fixed accounts, you can make the most of your international savings without having to go through the foreign exchange process. View Site »

Barclays Ribbon6


Benefit from convenient international banking in Sterling, Euro and US Dollar to help you conduct your personal affairs with ease. Pay a mortgage, withdraw cash, or set up standing orders (restrictions apply) just like you would with a standard bank account. You must maintain a minimum balance across your accounts to keep them open. View Site »

HSBC Ribbon7


As the self-proclaimed “world’s local bank”, HSBC offers a range of offshore banking options with current accounts, savings accounts, mortgages, foreign exchange, and tax planning. You can also link your local HSBC accounts together to make international money transfers easier, and invest your multi-currency deposits in one of their managed funds. View Site »
