Financial Advice for Expats Living in Italy


Italy is one of the most desirable countries to move to in Europe thanks to its warm climate, welcoming culture and favourable tax regimes aimed attracting professionals, entrepreneurs and retirees.

The majority of financial advice available in Italy is not independent. Typically, people use a bank or an asset manager who sells a limited range of products with their remuneration coming from the product rather than the client directly. The nature of this model means that the financial advisor is working for an institution rather than working for you.

At Valiant Wealth we take the opposite approach and work for our clients to provide tailored financial planning that is 100% independent, transparent and fee-based.

If you’re an expat looking for independent financial advice in Italy then we can provide you with the right support and guidance to optimise your long-term financial planning.


If you’re a British expat in Italy with assets in the UK then you need a clear picture of how to manage them. Living overseas presents complications with investment management, generating income, managing currency fluctuations, protecting capital and understanding tax obligation both in your own lifetime and when you pass them on upon your death.

We provide UK-regulated advice to assess all of your assets and the optimise them to manage all of the concerns mentioned above.

If you’ve spent a significant part of your career working in the UK then it’s probable that you’ll have accumulated pensions either in the form of defined contribution pots or defined benefit final salary pensions.

We give the best UK-regulated advice on UK pensions for British expats in Italy. Unfortunately many British expats in Italy have been badly advised in the past and transferred their UK pensions into Qualifying Recognised Overseas Pension Schemes (QROPS) in jurisdictions like Guernsey, Malta and Gibraltar. The majority – probably 99% – of these were done unnecessarily and could actually leave you worse off from a tax perspective.

US Expat Financial Advice


US expats and US connected persons face challenges with regard to their investments as many financial institutions simply won’t allow U.S. connected persons to hold investment products and increasing numbers of U.S. financial institutions are closing brokerage accounts for U.S. connected persons with overseas addresses.

The U.S. Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) has paved the path for subsequent and more global regimes, notably the Common Reporting Standard (CRS).

Providing correct advice to US expats is just one area in which we specialise. For a free and confidential meeting about your situation, please contact us via the form below.
