Personal financial planning is a process of making decisions about all areas of your financial life. The process includes gathering information about your assets, liabilities, spending, and income; discussing and identifying goals and objectives; modeling and presenting financial solutions; then implementing the plan recommendations.
If standard financial planning is complex, then international planning is even more so—the laws, rules, and regulations that apply in an international context may differ substantially in a purly domestic setting. In addition, a product, legal strategy, or structure that is perfectly suited in a domestic context may not be appropriate—or even legal—in the new foreign jurisdiction. Furthermore, coordinating planning between two or more jurisdictions with conflicting rules and regulations can be technically challenging and time consuming.
You will want to work with a planner who has the cultural background, experience, and expertise to efficiently address your needs and help you attain your goals.
