Family Led Overseas Investment
Businesses and properties as overseas family
Overseas investment is an incredibly lucrative way of developing your business acumen and building a business
empire and sense outside of your country of origin. However, it can be overwhelming at first, dealing with foreign
languages and regulations.
With that in mind, you could consider investing your money with family. Real estate is hot the world over and by building your investments with
family in mind, you can to the best of your ability guarantee that your investment will be protected.

One of the primary ways to invest in
property and make money from it is to rent to your own family. You can ensure that your property will be well
looked after and have a flexible way of collecting your money. Many companies provide specific mortgages for this
purpose, offering regulated family renting mortgages. The benefit here is that rent payments made by the tenant
can be offset against the mortgage. When paired with landlord insurance this can create a worry free asset. Be
aware of the specific rules and regulations around this type of arrangement, as there are tax rules for renting to relatives.
You could also see if any of your family have an interest in opening up an overseas business. This again centers
around property, where your money can be pooled into a solid asset that with careful planning will appreciate over
the years. If you are interested in opening up an overseas business, or handing it over to your relative for their
management, there are lots of options for overseas business investment.
Taking Advantage of Investment Funds
Outside of the family sphere, many huge investment funds take up considerable overseas holdings. The Ontario
Teachers Plan, for example, made the news when it hired a London based consultancy fund to manage its worldwide investments. Making
overseas investments is a case of checking the necessary regulation and barriers to your investment.
You can bring this back in with your family by investing inheritance, pension and school funds into divested
overseas investments and creating a plan for interest, dividends and other methods of cashflow.
There are many ways that your family and your wealth can help to build your investment base and make a real
impact for the future. A few have been covered here, but if you use this as a foundation you can create the perfect
plan for yourself.
