Offshore banks

There are tens of thousands of offshore banks all over the world as far as by definition the offshore bank is a bank located outside the country of residence of the depositor. However the actual number of these banks is lower, because many banks are limiting the account opening to resident customers thus these banks provide no offshore banking services. The most popular offshore banks are banks typically located in a low tax jurisdiction in politically stable region and that provides strong privacy and easy access to deposits. Some offshore banks are located only in one jurisdiction, or they are initially perceived as the banks of one particular jurisdiction, however there are many international banks working globally and providing offshore banking services from many offshore jurisdictions.
