The reasons for opening a foreign bank account.
Any person may have a personal reason for opening an foreign bank account. Someone just wants to keep their savings in a more reliable than most of the local banks place, the other intend to invest in securities of foreign companies,the third will have a long business trip or will study abroad.
What is the difference between an offshore bank account and an usual foreign bank account?
An offshore bank account – it’s the same account as the account in any other foreign bank and its functionality it is no different from the usual account. The main difference that makes an offshore bank account attractive for the customer is increased level of confidentiality. Of course, we can not talk about the complete confidentiality of any data, but there are a number of banks, where the procedure of getting information from them is a difficult task for illegally operating persons.
Actually, such kind of the banks are most popular among customers who want to protect themselves from excessive attention.
Usually such banks are called “offshore”, although the use of this term not always correspond to the essence of the word “offshore”, because “offshore banks” are called both the banks registered in the classic offshore jurisdictions as well as banks of different countries, which are famous for for their reliability and confidentiality.
