Big Commissions Still Make Offshore Financial Products Inflexible & Expensive
Unfortunately, life insurance companies don’t have a great record when it comes to driving change. This is why governments stepped in to regulate them as self regulation just didn’t work. The issue for all expats is that this regulatory process is at very different stages around the world. Another issue is that even when it is at an advanced stage, expat communities aren’t a major priority for most regulators. Finally financial products that are designed for the local market just don’t have the portability that most expats need.
Even now most expats get lumbered with inflexible offshore life insurance products. They offer no transparency and tend to be very expensive in part due to the commissions that get paid out upfront. Even when regulators have made moves to control these commission payments the impact is negligable. The fees are just the same, commissions are still paid out only this time it is spreadout over 12-18 months.

Unfortunately, most international financial advisers have either forgotten the importance of providing advice on protection benefits or just ignore it. Too much work and not enough reward. Subsequently over the last decade the choices available have shrunk.
Expats generally don’t have access to a benefits system so protection is extremely important. Portability is even more important with protection benefits. A change in your circumstance can lead to a change in insurability. So if you’re policy isn’t global you may not be eligible for cover.

We’ve already mentioned the importance of portability when it comes to financial solutions for expats. For investments it is a matter of continuity and convenience, if you move, you’re investments don’t have to.
