We can recommend several Monegasque banks and help you in setting up such an account. This article is introducing one of the most attractive options.
A minimum deposit of 500,000 EUR/CHF/USD is required to open the account. You do not need to come to Monaco, the account will be opened remotely after a telephone interview.
This type of account is not intended for active business, it is focused on wealth management, protection, and savings growth. By opening an account with external asset management in Monaco, you will have access not only to all products and services of the bank but also to all the advantages of working with an external asset manager.
What advantages does an external asset management account offer?
An external asset manager (also called an independent asset manager or a wealth manager) is an independent expert who communicates with the bank on behalf of the client and resolves any issues in the client’s interest. The external asset manager is not affiliated with the bank in any way and is not interested in selling any banking products or services to you as a client. On the contrary, if it is in your interest, the external asset manager will recommend another bank or external service provider.
The client holding such an account receives the following benefits from the fact that the external asset manager communicates with the bank on his/her behalf:
- all issues related to cooperation with the Bank are resolved promptly and professionally
- the process of passing the Due Diligence procedure and other bank inspections is simplified
- the external manager assumes some responsibility for the client’s compliance with anti-money laundering legislation
- the customer can open accounts with other foreign banks remotely, quickly and at a reduced price
- the customer can quickly close an account and redistribute assets to other jurisdictions in the event of an unfavorable situation
- the banking status of the client gets upgrading
- the account maintenance costs get reduced
- the client gets exclusive access to additional products, services, and bonuses.
As the client gets the maximum access to the banking expertise, including advice provided by the external managers and private bankers, this twofold service – from the bank and the external manager – generates very favorable opportunities:
- the client gets simultaneous access to research results and analysis from two parallel sources of expertise, thereby being able to form a holistic picture and make well-balanced investment decisions
- the risk of error is kept to a minimum thanks to the double verification of each transaction
- the service is available even outside the bank’s working hours
