An offshore investment1  is the keeping of money in a jurisdiction other than one’s own country of residence, and is a common solution to reducing tax liability in one’s home country. International investment2  often allows an investor the opportunity to enjoy higher rates of return than would be available in the investor’s home country. Some offshore investment options include money market, bond and equity assets through offshore companies
