Offshore banking in Europe

Many European countries offer a wide range of banking and financial services to their international customers. Some investors will naturally be drawn to internationally-famous European countries like Switzerland or Liechtenstein, known for being financial centers. However, it is worth exploring what other jurisdictions have to offer in terms of privacy and asset management.

Banks will require a set of personal documents for offshore bank account opening purposes. These include, but are not limited to, a valid passport, bank references and proof of address. The personal presence in the bank may not be required in all cases.

Please feel free to contact our offshore company formation agents for more details on opening a European offshore bank account.
