By Abbas Somji Budgeting – it seems so simple in theory. You say how much you want to spend and don’t spend anymore. Easy? Well, yes, in theory. The bigger question is: how do you budget? Do you put a number to each and every category? Do you have one large number and forget the […]

Who We Help
All of our financial advisors are American citizens living in the UK. They have a lot in common with you and inherently understand what it means to live a trans-Atlantic life.
We understand what being an American living overseas is like. Whether you came over to the UK on a two year rotation and never went home or the love of your life turned out to be British and there was no way you were going to settle in the USA; we all have something in common. No matter how many years you have spent outside the USA you will always be a US taxpayer. That brings it’s own complications and burdens, not least when it comes to financial planning.
Read here to learn more about how we help overseas Americans living in the UK.
Whether you are a US-based trustee with international settlors and beneficiaries or a non-US trustee who has beneficiaries who are US tax payers Tanager Wealth Management can advise on and implement tax efficient investment strategies and multi-jurisdictional reporting to assist you.
Read here to learn how we can help US and non-US trustees.
Legal and regulatory changes in the USA has meant that more and more American banks, custodians and investment houses are freezing or closing accounts held by non-US citizens with foreign addresses.
The biggest impact we have seen so far is on British nationals who spent a period of their working life in the USA and as a result have a US pension. Many US companies are no longer willing to work with such individuals.

The chances are you have become, either intentionally or not, a US taxpayer. You may have lived in the USA for a sufficient number of years, you may have become a citizen or you may simply have a Green Card. It is likely you have no plans to return to the UK, but you left behind a panoply of pensions, ISAs, investment accounts, maybe a property or two.
No one tells you this – when you cross-over your assets are likely to become subject to US tax.
Read here to learn more about how we can help people like you.

Who We Are
Americans Advising Americans
We are proud that our team of dual qualified financial advisors are also Americans living overseas. We want to help fellow Americans plan for a successful financial future rather than worry about US/UK financial issues. Call us on +44 (0) 20 3965 6330 to speak to one of our advisors.
We are here to help. As fellow American expatriates we understand the hurdles you need to clear to find peace of mind about your financial situation.

We focus on the positive and work with you and your advisors to map a path to financial success.
