Planning for the future doesn't stop when you move abroad. I provide retirement savings solutions and will work with you on planning for short-term and long-term goals and expenses.
Investment firms are closing their doors to Americans overseas. At EurekaWealth Management, I use a global investment platform which allows for professional money management while you're abroad.
It can be challenging to find the insurance you need while abroad. We research broker health, life, and long-term care and will help guide you to make the decisions that protect you and your family.
Financial planning for expats
Comprehensive planning around your goals includes an understanding of your assets, liabilities, income, and expenses. There, I can determine your path to retirement or help implement strategies if you’re already in retirement.
Net worth & cash flow analysis: This may include debt payoff strategies or strategizing the sale of assets in order to purchase real estate. I will review ownership of assets as this impacts your estate.
Retirement planning: Calculate how much you need to save to reach your retirement goals. Strategies may include using tax-advantaged accounts, such as IRAs. This also includes a Social Security analysis.
Investment planning: Analyze your current portfolio and prepare an investment plan that meets your risk tolerance, time horizon, and compliance requirements. This includes semi-annual reviews.
Tax & estate planning: I coordinate with your tax and legal professionals and illustrate strategies that may improve your tax and estate situation. This may include charitable giving strategies or funding a trust.
Insurance planning and strategies: Expats often find themselves without adequate insurance. After determining your protection needs and potential gaps, I do the research to see how you can get covered. This includes health coverage, life, disability, and long-term care.
Small business: Strategies may include setting up a retirement plan to reduce your tax obligation, a review of business risks, and planning for succession.
More and more investment firms are not allowing expats to own mutual funds. Investing offshore is expensive and complicated. Not notifying your financial institution of your non-U.S. address may result in the liquidation of your account, causing a tax nightmare. We are an expat-friendly investment firm with the mission and capabilities to keep you compliant and have peace of mind.
