WHAT ARE OFFSHORE INVESTMENTS?

PSG Online brings you offshore investments that give you access to international markets through our online trading platform. You will be able to invest offshore in shares in real time on 25 major international stock exchanges through our online international trading desk.

Clients can choose to invest offshore on major international exchanges by either using their own foreign investment allowance or by using our PSG institutional asset swop facility.

We give you easy access to international markets, allowing you to construct a portfolio of shares, exchange traded funds (ETFs) or exchange traded notes (ETNs) to benefit from offshore investment opportunities. If you do not know how to invest offshore and are not comfortable with making all the offshore investment decisions on your own, we suggest that you contact a PSG Konsult financial advisor who will be able to manage a portfolio of offshore investments on your behalf.

You will receive an offshore investment trading account with the same flexibility and benefits as a local portfolio after completing a simple online registration process. If you are an existing PSG Online client you will not need to reregister your FICA documents. You can manage your offshore investment account on your local share trading platform, combining easy access to your local and offshore investment accounts as well as your derivative and currency trading accounts.

WHAT OPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE FOR OFFSHORE INVESTMENTS?

PSG Online provides two options in order to access offshore markets in order to gain offshore equity exposure.

Offshore allowance account (Individuals)

The following allowance options are available in order to move your cash overseas:

Offshore asset swop account

The PSG Offshore asset swop account permits a range of entities for example individuals, trusts, companies, partnerships and joint account holders to invest offshore without making use of their foreign allowance.

The benefit of this offshore account is that account holders do not require South African Reserve Bank approval as PSG's institutional asset swop facility and not a personal allowance is used. This account empowers you to invest offshore without the SARB administrative requirements normally required for offshore investments.

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF OFFSHORE WITH PSG ONLINE?

RISKS OF INVESTING OFFSHORE

Trading shares offshore carries extra risk as traders have to take possible currency valuation  changes into account when buying shares.

No one should trade shares unless they have instituted risk control measures such as putting 'stop loss' controls in place. Share trading requires a high appetite for risk, time to watch the markets and an expert knowledge of the markets and trading process.

In addition, clients should evaluate whether trading offshore is appropriate for them in light of their circumstances and financial resources.
