  1. Thanks for your thoughts. will keep the money in the coffe jar
  2. Hi everyone, Given the rates for saving accounts offered by high street banks I am thinking of setting up and off shore account where I can keep some of my savings. I would appreciate if any of you have some thought on this and what bank they recommend. Regards Yassen
  3. Thanks a lot Euro for the article but I am not subscribed to FT. I will look for the article somewhere else. So is there any Austrian bank that is safer? Somone gave me the followings names but need to find out more about them. ErsteBank, Raiffeisen, Bawag and Volksbank but don't know anything about them but I am told the Austrian gov guarentees up to 100K deposits! I have chosen an Austrian because it will be easier for me to open an account with them. Any thoughts are very much appreciated.
  4. Thanks SaintJay for your thoughts, might try another bank then.
  5. Have some saving in a Spanish bank account and keen to move them somewhere else. The situation isn't''t looking at all promising in that savers could easily have their accounts blocked and end up loosing their lsavings as happened when Argentina defaulted on its debts. A friend of mine suggested opening an account in Bank Austria (a unicredit group) as it will be safer. Does anyone have any thought on this?
  6. Thanks stainless sam and I agree with you. What I was also trying/hoping by me posting the thread is to find out in which (currency) in short term I should keep my savings. I am keen to move whatever I have to GBP but again looking at the tones of overwhelming financial news and you think none of the currencies are safe. I am told QE2 will not be of much help either.
  7. I am back in the UK and feel that the savings (in €) that I have in Santander, with all the problem in the financial market, will soon disappear. So my plan is to move them to my account in the UK. I spoke to someone in my branch and was told that this will incur a charge of 0.68% plus a 15€ for swift, which I think is a bit expensive. Has anyone used any online currency exchange dealer, and what is the best way to transfer the money without incurring all these charges. Thanks in advance

  9. I am not sure in which forum to start this thread, so if there is a more appropriate one, please do change it. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ I am back in the UK and feel that the savings (in €) that I have in Santander, with all the problem in the financial market, will soon disappear.
