Absa Wealth International
You could be making your first move abroad to work; you could be retiring abroad or might want to become a long-term resident in a foreign country; or you could simply be looking to keep your money safe from political and economic uncertainty. Whatever your circumstances, we can help you through our wide range of offshore and international banking services.
Take advantage of our unrivalled international banking services and expertise. Through our links with the Barclays Group and Barclays Wealth International, we can provide you with world-class day-to-day banking, savings and mortgages in a range of currencies, allowing you to carry out transactions in more than 160 countries.
The level of services provided would depend on the assets you held with us. Customers with assets of £5,000-£50,000 have access to a team of personal bankers, as well as easy and secure telephone and internet banking which enables them to access our comprehensive range of products and services.
If you have £50,000 or more to invest, we offer a relationship-managed service with a more personalised experience and a dedicated Relationship Manager. This service is designed to help you manage and maximise your wealth, providing a comprehensive and personal approach that is built around you. Our Relationship Managers can introduce you to the many specialist services of the Barclays Group, and are assisted by a skilled and helpful relationship support team.
No matter what your personal situation, you need a financial base. Banking internationally with Barclays Wealth gives you access to a stable financial market to help protect your wealth, and access to an extensive range of banking, lending and investment products.
Our services are designed to provide quick and easy management of your day-to-day finances. You can access:
- cheque accounts in sterling, US dollars and euros as well as other currencies
- discounted international payments that can be made easily via phone or online
- International Internet Banking Service, for instant access day or night
- a dedicated telephone team focused on meeting everyday banking needs
- a choice of cards that enable you to make cash withdrawals and purchases worldwide (subject to application)
- foreign-currency exchange services to help manage the impact of foreign-exchange rates on balances held with us, and of course to make purchases and payments. If you are a relationship-managed client, you can also benefit from a pre-approved overdraft facility of up to £10,000 (or the equivalent in another currency).
Savings and Investments
An extensive range of savings options is available in sterling, US dollars and euros. We also offer sophisticated cash-management services to help protect and grow wealth. You can choose from advice-only or a fully managed investment service from a comprehensive range of investments, including structured products, single-asset-class and multi-manager funds, foreign-exchange-linked investments and share dealing.
We can help you meet a wide range of borrowing needs, from investment leverage through to world-wide property finance provided throughout the Barclays Group. We offer a world-class credit proposition to attract and retain our clients.
We help you meet your financial objectives and achieve your goals. Our aim is to provide wealth structures that preserve and transfer wealth. A trust is the most common form of wealth structure, and can be a powerful tool. In Wealth International, we have a range of trust structures that enable us to meet your needs.
