Domicile: Isle Of Man

Lump Sum Investments
Cost: 8.4/10 - They are one of the better options in terms of overall costs.

Overall: 6.9/10 – Recently pulled out from many markets thus access is difficult now as is the paperwork requirements.
Main Positives: Their company strength as their main business is treasury services.
Main Negatives: Becoming rather onerous recently in terms of paperwork and source of wealth requirements.
Isle of Man based Capital International Group (CIG) offer their Trade Ex platform internationally, with low minimum balances and a huge range of tradeable assets it offers something unique in the international space.
Excellent online facilities make it very easy for clients to view and trade their investment portfolios.
The ability to add things like spread accounts to the trading platform to enable investment returns to be paid tax free are novel and a real move forward in the offshore market.
