Australian Expat Frequently asked questions

We understand that when it comes to learning and improving your level of financial literacy as a Australian expat, whether you are just about to move overseas, living the expat life or about to return to Australia, that there are always a lot of questions which is why we have setup the Australian Expat Frequently Asked Question section.

Here we outline some of the most commonly asked questions about obtaining Australian expat financial advice. If the answers below doesn’t cover your question then please head over to the contact us page to submit your question.



How Do I Become a Client?

There are a number of ways you can become a client of Atlas Wealth Management. You can either:

  • Contact our office to find out when an adviser will be available in your region to meet in person; or
  • A Meeting can be conducted over Skype; or
  • We can arrange to meet when you’re next in Australia. You are welcome to visit our office or we are more than happy to come to you.

In order to correctly understand your financial position and the requirements you have, we recommend a complimentary meeting to discuss your personal circumstances.

Why Would I Pick an Australian Based Adviser over an Offshore Based Adviser?

Australian based advisers are licensed and monitored by the Australian Securities & Investments Commission (ASIC) unlike many offshore advisers who operate sometimes with little to no regulations.

Australian advisers not only understand your needs as an Australian expatriate but understand the relevant regulatory issues that are faced by Australian expats. Quite often offshore advisory firms manage clients of many different nationalities so their advice is directed at expats in general, not how it affects you as an Australian expatriate in particular.

Due to the regulations, our advisers must undertake continuing education that ensures their professional knowledge and skills are always at the highest standing.

How Secure Are My Investments?

Atlas Wealth Management only works with Australia’s leading financial services companies. These companies pride themselves on maintaining their integrity and are subject to some of the world’s toughest financial regulations.

By utilising our services, you will always have the peace of mind knowing that your account is being operated under the jurisdiction of the Australian Securities & Investment Commission (ASIC).

What happens when I repatriate back to Australia?

We have many clients who come back to Australia to either continue working or to retire. They still utilise the services of Atlas Wealth Management because they still require someone to provide them with financial advice. As we have managed your investments over a number of years, we are usually in the best position to provide ongoing advice because no one understands your position better than we do.
