As current expatriates, the founding members of Beacon Financial Education have a firm understanding of the financial concerns, questions and uncertainty of business people who live and work abroad. Who should you trust with your money? Where do you go to get correct answers about the current financial climate? What are the tax laws of the country you live in? Fortunately, we’re here to help.
We aim to help anyone living outside their home country in need of financial education, and provide additional financial educational services to Americans, individuals with a U.S. nexus as well as (former) British expatriates (with or without a U.S. connection).
Our management team consists of leaders with deep financial planning, education and training experience; all of whom have lived and worked overseas.

Financial Educational Services
Beacon Financial Education – part of Beacon Global Group Europe Ltd – is uniquely positioned at the center of a series of global relationships with banks, accountants, lawyers, tax specialists and international financial planners, all with the desire to grow their businesses through serving the unique needs of American and British expatriates wherever they are in the world.
Beacon Financial Education regularly hosts free financial education seminars in The Netherlands, Germany, the UK and Switzerland, but we are still expanding our network across Europe! Starting this Autumn we will also introduce webinars, to help even more expatriates become more financially literate, so they can make the well-informed financial decisions they deserve.
Topics that may be discussed at these seminars and webinars are:
- Lifestyle Financial Education
- Retirement Planning Education
- Tax Planning Education
- FATCA Compliance Education
- Protection Planning Education
- Inheritance Tax Planning Education
- Investment Strategy Education
We are more than happy to link you to partners from the Beacon Preferred Partner Network for a free consultation: independent financial advisors across Europe who know what it means to be an expat, and the financial challenges expatriates face when living and working abroad. They will discuss your personal financial, tax and/or legal situation with you, and can help you create a financial plan that meets your future requirements and personal preferences.
Failing to plan = planning to fail
