U.S. Expat Essentials

Explore Schwab’s services for U.S. Expats

We understand that, as an American living outside the U.S., you face some difficult challenges, such as finding accommodations, settling your kids into schools, and adjusting to a different culture.

That’s why Schwab aims to make your financial transition as smooth as possible. We can help you invest in U.S. markets while living abroad, access U.S. dollar–based accounts, and provide reporting for U.S. tax filing.

  • Local and U.S.-Based Professional Support

    The U.S.-licensed Financial Consultants in our London office can help guide you through the account opening process and answer your questions. Just call and schedule an appointment. You’ll also have access to:

    • U.S.-based client support and specialists to discuss specific investing or trading needs through a toll-free phone service, 24x5.
    • London-based branch and online workshops showcasing Schwab’s platforms, market insights, and trading strategies.
    • An international wire team to facilitate quick and efficient currency exchanges and money movement.

    Not only can we assist with your US investing needs while living abroad, we can also help you with account transitioning if you decide to move back to the U.S.
