Where to Access European Offshore Banks

Europe is a unique banking destination because it has a wide range of account opening options available for non-residents. In some cases, these non-resident options are in traditional offshore banking hubs, while others are in private banking hubs that cater specifically to high-net-worth individuals.

In this section, we’re focused on account opening in traditional offshore banking hubs. But, because there is such a blurred line between offshore and private banking in Europe, we’ll also include a few private banking hubs below for you to consider.

Alternatively, if you are primarily interested in high-net-worth banking services, you can use the links below to navigate to our content hub for European private banking as well.

Now, lets take a look at some of the key offshore banking hubs in Europe:

  • Isle of Man
  • Jersey
  • Gibraltar
  • Guernsey
  • Cyprus
  • Malta

Here are a few of the European private banking hubs that are home to banks offering offshore banking services as well:

  • Andorra
  • Austria
  • Liechtenstein
  • Switzerland

Deposit Requirements for Offshore Accounts in Europe

The amount that you are going to be expected to deposit to open an offshore bank account in Europe will depend on the type of account you want to open and the country you’ve chosen. 

For example, most international clients can get started with an offshore bank account in the Isle of Man with an initial deposit of $3,000. On the other hand, the same client would be required to deposit $50,000 to open an account in Jersey.

Naturally, the service that you receive when depositing $3,000 is going to be different than the service you receive when you deposit $50,000. So, knowing your priorities in terms of service, account functionality, and deposit amount are all important factors to consider.
