About the webinar

To truly diversify your assets, you should be investing in the global economy. 

You can have breakfast in Cape Town this morning, dinner in London this evening, and all the while be online, buying something from New York – South Africa as a financial destination is merely less than 1% of the global market place. INN8 brings the offshore world to your clients.

Many investors have the misconception that investing offshore is too complex. We can help demystify this popular topic.

This webinar attempts to unpack the most important considerations you should be mindful of as a wealth manager when investing your clients offshore. Grant of Probate, situs taxes, intestate succession, executors’ fees, and estate duties are all concepts we will tackle which will help you understand offshore investing a little better.
