WHAT CAN YOU DO TO IMPROVE YOUR FINANCIAL SITUATION
In Europe, in America and worldwide, banks are essential, because if there were no banks your national or international business would be impossible. As a matter of fact banks save your money and make your payment cashless.
But you can do something not to be slave of the excessive power of banks. Worldwide banks, of course, safeguard their interests. And also you can do something to protect you against the dangers arising from a possible crisis of your bank.
First of all let’s speak about Ball-in. What is it? It is a measure taken from the European central Bank.
In the event of a crisis, the Bank makes bank creditors and shareholders contribute to solve financial crisis of a bank.
Ball-in forces shareholders and creditors to be aware of how their bank is managed and therefore to take specific decision about it.
This measure is the first step to restore a bank system in the hand of nepotism and to think more of personal advantages rather than public advantages.
WHAT CAN YOU PERSONALLY DO TO IMPROVE YOUR FINANCIAL SITUATION
A great deal remains to be done in order to improve your financial situation and begin to be personally responsible of your financial status.
First of all you have to investigate your bank. It means to examine new proposal, including the possibility to look at banks beyond national borders and also to diversify your bank deposits with safe assets as, for example, gold.
But you also need to bear in mind another fact. You need not only to diversify your money in national banks, but in international banks too. It is important that you have your assets in countries where different rules apply and that’s because with Ball-in measure the changes are caused by policy.
Governments always find an excuse (from terrorism to money laundering) to impose on you capital control.
If you have a part of your assets across borders, governments can achieve a more difficult asset freeze or confiscation of property.
HOW TO HAVE A SURE BANK ACCOUNT ABROAD
When you are going to open a bank account outside your country, do not forget these important points:
- If jurisdiction allows foreigners to open bank accounts
- Taxation of interest
- Deposit insurance
- Health of the bank
- Economical and political stability of the jurisdiction
- The level of bank service
- Foreign exchange risk
Of course, you have also to bear in mind that to open a bank account in another European or non European country is legal. On the contrary, what is not legal is to omit to declare in your own tax return that you have capital and income earned abroad.
The tax return is simple, but it is better that you consult your own accountant to be sure to present a correct tax return.
At this point, do not forget that in countries outside the European Union you can get interests higher than 10% on your bank account.
So, what are you waiting for?
