We believe in tax-smart investing. Our strategies are based on
local tax regulations to maximize your after-tax profit.

The hardest thing in the world to understand is the income tax.

Only the after-tax profit matters

We keep in mind various ways to lower your tax bills. Different countries have different income tax laws, and we try to utilize them to provide each client with an optimal investment strategy that maximises their after-tax return. These strategies may vary country by country. In some of them, we are even able to ensure that our clients pay zero taxes on their achieved profits.

The tax regime depends on each client's individual circumstances and may change in the future.

We utilize all available
tax reliefs

Time test

Many countries reward their tax residents for long-term investing. That is, if you hold index ETFs for a certain period, your capital gains tax might be completely waived or significantly reduced.

Non-taxable minimum

We use this tax relief when clients wish to make early withdrawals or when their capital gains are below the thresholds defined in the tax codes. In this respect, if your net investment profits are low, they might be tax exempt.

Lower tax rates

Each country has its specific income tax rates for capital gains and dividends. We carefully analyze these rates and, based on our findings, select index funds for our clients. These funds either distribute dividends or reinvest them entirely, depending on which payout form is subject to a lower tax rate.

We seize every opportunity to lower your taxes

When constructing portfolios

We have a long-term investment strategy, favouring ETFs over individual equities due to their lower volatility resulting from mirroring the entire market. Our investment choices are guided by whether distributing or accumulating ETFs offer superior tax incentives.

When you request a withdrawal

If you decide to withdraw funds, we will warn you about potential tax consequences and attempt to advise you on how to reduce your tax liability or even avoid paying any tax at all.

When rebalancing

Regular portfolio rebalancing serves to mitigate risks and increase returns. During the rebalancing process, we carefully consider any potential tax consequences.
