Why Canada is attractive for investors

The economic and political situation in Europe, as well as the issues of climate change and peace, are prompting more and more people to diversify their assets. Whereas in the past people had invested their assets classically in real estate and shares in Germany, there is a clear trend towards investing abroad. The geographical allocation of assets, even beyond the borders of Europe, is becoming increasingly popular with many investors. The aim is to secure one’s own assets in the long term and at the same time make them independent of the political situation in Europe. Aspects of tax law play just as important a role as looking ahead to retirement and staying in retirement. Many Germans and Europeans are longing for opportunities to invest their hard-earned money in a future-proof way withoutnegative interest rates and investment pressure.

Canada is interesting for investors from Europe for several reasons. From a political point of view, Canada is a stable and democratic country that has its cultural roots in European socialization by the English and French. The national languages English and French enable investors to communicate easily and directly with local banks and authorities . The customs as well as the legal framework are comparable to European standards and many banking transactions can be conveniently handled from abroad from the PC at home. The country’s own currency, the can-dollar, is considered stable in value and, unlike the U.S. dollar, is tied to physical commodities.

Particularly interesting for investors from Europe is the fact that, in addition to the fact that an account can be opened easily without residency in Canada, there is still a usual credit interest rate of%-3% on savings and assets in Canada. It is also possible for non-Canadians to purchase land and cultivate it as needed. Anyone who has come to know and love Canada with its untamed nature appreciates the opportunity for a retirement home with investment potential.
