Take the Heavy Lifting Out of Offshore Investing

By Andrew Brotchie, 2 October 2020

Traditionally, an offshore investment could require a large financial commitment, upwards of thousands of US dollars, which could equate to hundreds of thousands of rands.

The revised R100 000 minimum requirement for the Glacier Offshore Investment Plan brings investing abroad within reach for many South African investors.

Administration Infrastructure That Gets Things Done

The simplicity of the administrative infrastructure upon which the Offshore Investment Plan is built, also allows you to invest in the currency of your choice and depositing the investment couldn’t be easier. A South African bank account is opened where the forex administration is done for you if you so choose.

The Glacier Offshore Investment Plan ticks many boxes as part of your investment portfolio and offers:

  • portfolio diversification in terms of exposure to a variety of asset managers, countries, currencies and industries;
  • simpler take-on requirements than other international investment options;
  • lower investment minimums than traditional offshore options;
  • guided investment options;
  • taxable gains are calculated in foreign currency; and
  • liquidity – add to or withdraw from your investment at any time.
