Financial Services to South African Expats in the U.K.

Description: Do you have assets here and in SA? Find out what to do.

If, like many South Africans in the UK, you have money or other assets in South Africa and you're also growing your assets here, you may be wondering what to do.  Don't fall into the trap of forgetting about your "stranded assets"!

o Should you move your money here? And if so, what's the best way to do that?  
o What options to you have for your retirement savings? Life insurance? Foreign exchange?
o How should your longer term plans of living here or there impact your planning?

The SACC in collaboration with Orbis Investments (U.K.) Limited (sister company of Allan Gray in South Africa) are pleased to invite you to a webinar on Thursday 28th May 2020 at 12:00 discussing these and other financial questions facing SA expats.

The webinar, presented by independent financial advisers at Alexander Beard Group, will cover your choices with regards to various financial assets such as retirement funds or endowments, pros and cons of moving your money over to the UK and various risks and considerations for expats. You will have the opportunity to ask the panel about your specific situation and get first hand advice from experts who understand both the UK and SA financial landscape.
Alexander Beard Group provide cross-border financial services with offices in the UK and SA. They have a wealth of experience and expertise in both countries that enables them to provide optimised advice, taking into account the legal and financial constraints and possibilities in each jurisdiction.
