Are you a US citizen living abroad?
Did your US broker firm notify you that you have to close your broker account?
Do you want to have access to a US broker account in the future?
It has come to our attention that some US brokerage firms have notified US nationals residing in Europe, that they must close their accounts, because they can no longer be serviced from the US.
Global Financial Solutions (GFS) is happy to offer you a solution, if you want to hold assets in an US broker account.
Through our cooperation with National Financial Services, an affiliate of Fidelity Investments, we can service your US broker account.
After opening an account with National Financial Services (NFS) the positions in your existing US broker account can easily be transferred into your new account with NFS using a standardized procedure, (ACAT). A VISA card for your new NFS account can be issued.
