    I found this post to be very fascinating and helpful for considering moving abroad. I expected to see Switzerland and Finland on the list, but I was surprised to find Guatemala. I had no idea that it was popular with off shore banking. I was actually surprised to see Chile on the list too, and it is neat to hear that it ranks at the top for Latin American countries.

      Thanks, Leah. Yes, a lot of people find it staggering to know that some banks in Latin America are doing so good.

    As you as I opened your post, the first thing I did was to scroll down to see where’s Swiz! Haha.
    Yeah, it is infamously known in our country, India, for all the money laundered by corrupt people….
    While I can imagine how the Scandinavian countries, Germany or Luxembourg are super safe, I didn’t know about the Central American countries. Good to know.

    Now, this is an interesting list. I have so often read about the safest countries for travel but never anything on the countries with the safest banks. I must say I was surprised to see Guatemala, Belize, and Panama on that list. But as you rightly mention, isn’t that why Panama is such a tax haven!

    Well this is definitely an unusual subject for a post! It’s honestly something I’ve never thought about when traveling, but this has been a real eye opener. I’m not surprised one bit that Scandinavian countries are on this list, it’s super safe in general. Very surprised about Guatemala!

    Well I’m proud that my home country is number 1 on the list!! But I was surprised some of other countries on the list. Some are countries I didn’t necessarily think that would be on top but good for them I guess. Also view countries are missing that I thought might make it to the list. Interesting post!

    I expected Switzerland and Germany to be on the list. I was surprised to see some central American countries on the list though. This is really helpful to know. I lived abroad in Russia and had problem after problem with my bank there. It’s really something people should consider before moving to a new country.

      Totally on your side Elizabeth and what surprises me the most that not all people who move abroad considered or even bother knowing about the banks.

        I already knew that countries like Switzerland, Hong Kong and Singapore would be on the list. I have visited Singapore before and it is really one of the safest country I’ve been to so its not a surprise to see Singapore on the list. I didn’t know about other countries though, glad to know about these. Thanks for sharing this!

    I always have heard about Swiss banks and known as it is the safest banks. But good to know the list of other safest banks in the world. Surprised to see that Guatemala and Chile would also be in this list. Norway and Luxembourg are the safest places, so I guess there banks too are safest.
