  • Private Banking Expansion in Singapore

    Taking advantage of the flow of capital out of the West and positioned at the centre of fast-growing economies, Singapore emerges as one of the hottest destinations for wealth. Singapore is focused on attracting high net worth individuals with major spending on infrastructure. Singapore's Duxton Hill has transformed from a red-light district to a high-finance haven. It's now a squeaky clean city-state of five million people, and is fast emerging as one of the world's hottest destinations for wealth. Foreigners who have been in Singapore for more than 10 years notice the vast changes. [Mark Fletcher, Attorney]: "I was here in '95 and '96, and it had a reputation for being a little bit dull, which it wasn't even then. And if it wasn't then it certainly isn't now.

  • Private banks assist Asian clients shop for foreign property

    As more wealthy Asians seek to buy property overseas as an investment or short-term residence, their private bankers are only too happy to help, according to a recent article in the New York Times. Indeed, the wealth management divisions of banks are reporting a brisk business in setting up short-term revolving loans for property purchases. The term is usually five years, renewable annually after that, and the interest rate is set individually in accordance with the borrower's credit profile. Given the low interest rates in the region, it makes sense for clients to borrow against property and use the cash for investments to generate higher returns. Another goal is to take advantage of low interest rates on loans, and to borrow in Asian currencies that have appreciated smartly in recent ...

  • Banking in Singapore vs banking in Hong Kong

    http://nomadcapitalist.com/offshore-banking/ Singapore and Hong Kong are often recognized as two of the best and most stable banking jurisdictions in Asia, and are considered by many as offshore banking options. But which is better: banking in Singapore or banking in Hong Kong? Andrew explains why Hong Kong banks have become rather difficult, while Singapore banks are more difficult than before but still workable. The truth is, neither of these countries needs your money, so they can afford to set the rules. Some of the safest banks in the world are in Asia, and it's definitely worth considering parking some of your wealth there as a means of international diversification. ----- ABOUT NOMAD CAPITALIST Andrew Henderson travels to nearly 30 countries every year to stay up to date on the...

[Mark Fletcher, Attorney]: "I was here in '95 and '96, and it had a reputation for being a little bit dull, which it wasn't even then. And if it wasn't then it certainly isn't now. It's a fantastic place. So much new development, the equivalent of the London Eye over there and this sky tower is just fantastic." Singapore's central bank estimates overall assets under management in the city are up about 40 percent from a year ago. [Anton Casey, Wealth Manager]: "I think Singapore has positioned itself very well, in terms of capturing all the flow of assets from out of Switzerland. You've got Zurich, Geneva, Lugano, the major financial centres in Switzerland, and a lot of people are now preferring the Asian story. To try and bring their wealth out and capitalize on all the opportunities out here." The big players, including Swiss giants UBS AG and Credit Suisse are looking to expand into the Asia-Pacific region in the next few years. The end of a decades-long ban on casinos about five years ago was a turning point. [Anton Casey, Wealth Manager]: "You know I would have never believed that we would have two massive casinos here when I first arrived here 10 years ago. But here we are, we are sitting on the roof of one now. And if you look around the bay you got all the new skyscrapers, all the new banks, wealth management firms all here, so it's really kicked off and the Gran Prix had helped a lot as well." Singapore is spending billions on infrastructure in its drive to continue attracting the best and brightest.

According to a survey published this year by the real estate agency Cluttons and the consulting firm VPC Asia Pacific, about 57 percent of wealthy investors named London as their top target market for property purchases. Investors surveyed in Kuala Lumpur and Singapore identified the central London residential market as their primary target for offshore investments, while wealthy investors in Bangkok ranked London behind Rangoon, Burma, and wealthy Indonesians placed London in third position, after Singapore and Australia.

Andrew started Nomad Capitalist to help people like you follow his five magic words: "go where you're treated best". He has personally started foreign companies, opened offshore bank accounts, and obtained multiple second passports. He also learned the hard way that perpetual information seeking is often the biggest barrier to getting the results you want. Many entrepreneurs spend months and even years constantly researching how to pay less in tax or live overseas, but are afraid to make the jump. As a result, they get stuck and keep paying a fortune in taxes and never get the lifestyle they deserve. Nomad Capitalist's Youtube channel is based on Andrew's vision that focusing on the end result, rather than the latest shiny object, is the best way to actually obtain the benefits of the Nomad Capitalist lifestyle.
