What makes the Best Offshore Bank Account?

At Skipton International we believe that the Best Offshore Bank Account is a function of a number of attributes. We specialise in providing some of the Best Offshore Savings Accounts available and support savers resident in over 100 countries. We understand the needs of offshore savers and streamline our processes to provide the best offshore savings experience we can. Please click here for our current offshore saving accounts.

Of course offering some of the Best Offshore Interest Rates is important and at Skipton International we often top the comparator charts for Offshore Interest Rates. However, being offered the Best Offshore Interest Rate is of limited benefit if it is quickly and quietly reduced. At Skipton International we are open and transparent, so will always write or secure message you to proactively communicate any interest rate changes. If your account were to no longer offer the Best Offshore Interest Rate, you can then make informed decisions as to the future of your savings.

Personal service is also important, we do not believe the Best Offshore Bank Accounts should rely on telephone call automation. You will not find “Press 1 for savings” type messages at Skipton, but rather a friendly and experienced Customer Services professional answering your call. We also look to answer telephones quickly, we know how expensive and frustrating it can be to be listening to hold music, particularly whilst located overseas.

New customers can apply online, where we have taken care to make our application process as straightforward as possible (although proof of identity and documentation must be posted to meet regulatory obligations). Existing customers may open new offshore bank accounts, transfer money or make withdrawals to nominated accounts over the phone or by post. Soon we will launch an online portal enabling customers to make such transactions and view their savings account balances online.

Skipton International believes it offers some of the Best Offshore Bank Accounts, which is backed up by organisations such as Moneyfacts who at least Commended Skipton International every year from 2010 to ceasing offhsore awards in 2017. We won the Moneyfacts Best Offshore Account Provider award in 2017, 2016 and in 2013.

Another reason why we believe we offer some of the best offshore bank accounts is customer feedback, particularly evidenced through Feefo, an independent customer service measurement where we have received their Gold awards for Trusted Service since 2017.
