History of Offshore Bank Accounts.

What is an offshore bank?

Offshore Banking Myths

What is bank account?

According to a study by consulting firm McKinsey and Company published in January, 2007, the value of total global financial assets, including equities, government and corporate debt securities, and bank deposits, expanded to $140 trillion in the 12 months to the end of 2005, an increase of $7 trillion from a year earlier. That is a growth rate of 5.3%.

There are no consolidated figures for the growth in offshore assets - many jurisdictions simply don't release figures. But for those that do, it is clear that the rate of increase in banking, trust and fund assets dramatically outpaces McKinsey's global figure. In Jersey, for instance, banking assets were GBP159bn in December, 2004; by September, 2006, they stood at GBP188bn. That is an annual growth rate of 10.2%, roughly double the global rate; and Jersey banking is by no means untypical of offshore performance. Indeed some other jurisdictions have shown higher growth rates; and fund assets have grown faster even than banking ones.

With 'onshore' high-taxing countries chopping finer and finer in order to remove tax loopholes, and imposing ever more stringent anti-money-laundering rules, it is no surprise that more and more people move their assets offshore, if they are able to.
These type of facts, of course, are very rarely ever reported by news and print media, or by the jurisdictions that are frankly quite embarrassed by these astonishing figures.

There is a staggering amount of money in the world, and more and more of it is in offshore jurisdictions.

Confidence in the safety and integrity of the Swiss financial and judicial systems.
