Unlocking the Potential of Offshore Banking


You don't need truck-loads of cash and shadowy third party associates to open offshore bank accounts, but the process does have to be planned carefully to ensure you get the best financial results. Offshore banking is now a legitimate and reputable business and most financial centres offering this facility are tightly regulated to ensure maximum security for investors. Even so, nothing is guaranteed in the world of investment so this is not an undertaking to rush into without researching it first.

Professional Expat Wife Syndrome

Robin Pascoe

“Ladies, I am here today to advise you about the many adjustments you will make when you move overseas with your husbands and become professional expatriate wives. I have been hired by the Corporation because I have extensive experience in this area, so feel free to raise any topic of concern.”

Tanja Wessels

Whether it’s a stopover or a destination, Hong Kong is not to be missed. Zig zag the city by train, tram, ferry or cable car but be sure to experience even a few of its must-do’s.
