We’re thinking of traveling to different countries for extended period of time while working as expats. We’re looking for a bank / brokerage to manage our finances while overseas. The qualities we’re looking for are:
- We’ll be making frequent wire transfers between US and other countries while abroad. The wire fee doesn’t matter too much, but we want to be able to wire-transfer large chunks of money (e.g. $100k).
- We won’t have an official address in US as we’ll be abroad. Are there any restrictions in doing so?
- We’ll also be trading stocks + ETFs.
I understand some banks offer private banking if your overall balance exceeds certain amount. Just wondering if y’all had better experiences with certain banks, etc. Thanks!
