Off shore banking

Why do people use off shore banks? Is this practice legal? I am relocating to Malaysia for work. Plan to be gone for a minimum of three years. Is this a practice I should look into if legal.?

Gotcha. That's pretty cool. Malaysia should be a blast from what I've heard.

We're totally stoked. The country is beautiful. The beaches are first class. Great food. Scuba diving. I'm really excited for my kids. What an opportunity to grow up experiencing other countries!!!

I would have an account with a large US bank--BofA or Chase or Citi--whichever has the biggest presence there.

I would not be scared of Malaysian banks but I would wait till I had lived there a little while to pick one. You are going to need somewhere to convert dollars to local currency for "walking around " money. Any of the big US banks with a big presence there should be able to do that.

I bank with USAA. They are online. They pay for ATM fees. I'll have two CC I was going to live on and earn points. Both have zero international fees.

I'll do some googling and see what American banks are there.

Who do you work for? I'm also in the LNG field.

Perhaps Jack Lew will elucidate during his Sec of Treasury hearing.

Lew’s Cayman Islands Fund a Likely Issue at Confirmation Hearings
By JONATHAN WEISMAN

As recently as 2010, Jack Lew, President Obama‘s nominee to be the next secretary of the Treasury, had $56,000 invested in a CitiGroup venture capital fund based in the Cayman Islands’ notorious Ugland House, a building whose mailboxes are home to nearly 19,000 corporate entities, many of them tax shelters.
