Offshore mutual funds are securities domiciled outside one's country of residence and typically under the laws of a foreign country which offer certain tax benefits to eligible investors. Further, J&T Funds are structured to provide international investors access to the investment products and services of internationally recognized investment managers that they may not have access to from their jurisdiction of residence.
The reasons investors choose offshore funds vary with the individual, but the principal advantages of offshore investing include:
- Potential for higher performance based on access to a broad range of global investment vehicles managed in the context of a disciplined, long-term investment philosophy, featuring international diversification, style allocation and asset allocation,
- Enhanced portfolio diversification and risk reduction,
- Privacy and confidentiality can be assured with a greater degree of confidence in a well-regulated offshore financial centre than in the larger over burdened money centres,
- Financial and estate planning flexibility,
- Asset protection.
In addition, the J&T Funds Family of Funds offer:
