France: the compelling nature of assurance vie

Every country has its own tax advantaged investment regimes to encourage savings and investments, and France is no different. There, assurance vie is a compelling solution with unique advantages. As well as being tax efficient for the policyholder in their lifetime, it can facilitate French inheritance planning, and at the same time overcome the Napoleonic code in terms of heirship laws that someone from the other side of ‘la manche’ would rarely contemplate. Listen to David Denton’s presentation to learn how to explain the wide ranging benefits of our fantastic new solution for your English Speaking Expat clients in France.
