Five tips to help you find good offshore investment opportunities

by , 24 June 2015

If you're looking to broaden your investment horizons by putting some of your money to work offshore, you need to conduct your due diligence first.

You must do this before parting with any of your cash. Unfortunately there are some unscrupulous individuals out there trying to swindle investors out of their hard-earned money.

So what should you check out?

Read on to find out…

Investing offshore tip #1: Check the auditor

One check worth conducting on any offshore investment opportunity is who has audited the investment. If it’s a major accounting firm, this is a good sign.

If it’s an auditor you’ve never heard of or there is no auditor of the investment, it’s time to walk away.

Investing offshore tip #2: Check if the investment is regulated

When you invest in SA, you should check an investment is registered with the Financial Services Board or other relevant organisation.

The same stands for when you invest offshore. Find out the names of the regulatory bodies in the country you want to invest in and check the investment has the right accreditation.

A promoter of a particular investment should also be licensed or registered with the corresponding governing body, so check this out too.

Investing offshore tip #3: Check out how well-known the investment is

If an investment is legit, chances are you’ll find reference to it in respected financial media. If it’s a scam, you probably won’t.

It’s worthwhile searching online for mention of the investment.

Investing offshore tip #4: Only invest in transparent investments

You want a thorough understanding of what exactly a new investment is and how it works. If the provider is cagey about giving you any details you ask for, you should consider walking away.

Investing offshore tip #5: Check out the investment promoter’s reputation

Thanks to the Internet, it’s easy to check out so many aspects of investments. Just ensure you’re reading the websites of good sources.

This will also give you a chance to check that questions you’ve asked directly match up with your findings.

So there you have it. Five tips to help you find good offshore investment opportunities.
