Flexibility in a changing world

We recognise that safety and security in today’s global economy are major priorities for our clients and we pride ourselves on having high standards. We also recognise that our expatriate clients need greater flexibility, ensuring that they do not have an extra burden of changing accounts when moving home or have an additional layer of tax that they should not be paying.
Banking services for expats
Barclays international banking operates in almost 200 countries every day. For expats who have international banking needs, we have the knowledge and experience to help you with offshore banking and investment requirements.
For expat women who are managing their finances in more than one country, we can help by setting up international bank accounts in a range of currencies, with discounted international online payments, as well as offering savings, investments, mortgages and loans.
Are you living or working as an expat?
It is likely that you may benefit from having an international bank account so that you can make and receive payments in multiple currencies. Barclays offers straightforward banking with discounted online international payments, making it easy for you to transfer money between countries. You can be in complete control of your finances and free from constraints imposed by a local bank. In addition, banking offshore may allow you to benefit from any potential offshore tax benefits2.
Does your family have an international lifestyle?
If you and your family have homes in different countries or frequently move internationally, offshore banking with Barclays has a number of services that may suit your needs. As well as international bank accounts, we offer financial planning services to help you manage and grow your wealth.
Do you feel confident about placing money in the UK or offshore?
Expat women and families are showing an increasing demand to ensure that their finances are looked after in a well regulated financial environment. You can save offshore in sterling, US dollars and euros with Barclays and we can help you access long and short-term investment solutions to help you grow and protect your wealth.
