Barclays Wealth International Launches iInvest

by Barclays Wealth International on April 20, 2011

New investment facility through Barclays

Barclays Wealth, a leading global wealth management firm and the UK’s largest, has announced the launch of Barclays Wealth iInvestTM, a new international investment service for Barclays Wealth International clients. Barclays Wealth iInvestTM enables clients to invest in products across a range of global markets and asset classes, from one single investment account, in GBP, US or EUR currencies.

Barclays Wealth iInvestTM is available to UK non-domiciles, UK expats, foreign nationals and residents of Jersey, Guernsey, the Isle of Man and Gibraltar, who have a minimum of £50,000 to invest.

International investment advisers will provide clients with expert advice to help them build bespoke portfolios that are tailored around their individual investment profile.

Barclays Wealth iInvestTM clients can place money in products that invest in:

  • shares
  • bonds
  • commodities
  • exchange traded funds
  • managed funds
  • structured products

Commenting on the launch of this new offering, Mark Richards, Managing Director, Barclays Wealth International and Wealth Intermediaries, said: “In this current environment where interest rates are lower than the rate of inflation, investors are seeing savings being eroded in real terms. With little expectation that interest rates will rise higher than inflation any time soon, Barclays Wealth iInvestTM provides an opportunity potentially to boost returns through diversification. There is a strong case for investing across geographies and the launch of Barclays Wealth iInvestTM is in direct response to client appetite for access to products that provide returns from shares, bonds, exchange traded funds, managed funds and structured products across the globe.”

Please note the value of investments can fall as well as rise and you may get back less than you invested.
