Expat investment services
Investing with Barclays international banking
Through the Barclays international banking investment service, we have developed a three step process that allows us to offer the most accurate investment advice we can to our clients.
1. Exploring your needs
First we need to understand your financial personality – how you react to and handle financial decisions, and what you want to achieve with your investments.
2. Assessing your attitude to investment risk
We have developed a new approach to fully understanding our clients’ attitude to investment risk. By completing a short and easy to complete questionnaire, we are able to grade your risk tolerance according to one of five categories.
3. Selecting the right investments
Having gained this insight, our experts would be in a position to recommend a selection of investments to build the right investment portfolio for you.
There are several product categories from which we can choose investments including those listed below.
Global Beta offers a range of globally diversified portfolios that consist of exchange traded funds. These funds provide low-cost, index-tracking returns.Find out more about Global Beta portfolios

These are fixed term investments that can offer a degree of certainty. They offer a variety of risk and return profiles. For example, they can return a fixed interest payment or be linked to assets, indices, interest rates, equities or commodities.Find out more about structured products
However, please bear in mind these are medium to long term investments, that is five years or more, and that their value and any income from them can go down as well as up. So you might not get back what you originally invested.
