Offshore Advisers

‘Legislation is constantly changing with the ages — and the argument for the offshore jurisdictions is to do with diversification, not to do with tax,’ says Julian Winser, chief executive officer of Cazenove Capital. ‘And any sensible client will diversify.’ With over 20 years’ wealth management experience and a spell in the private banking sector at Schroders, the former army helicopter pilot now focuses on advising HNW private clients on offshore taxation. He is illuminating on the changes to cross-border transparency standards: ‘Not a single [client] is worried by the changes with FATCA and CRS. They want to diversify their wealth — they don’t trust any government any more,’ he tells us.
