As part of my work for Your French Matters
I have the opportunity to work with many interesting clients and
on their behalf I often likewise meet many interesting professionals
with different areas of expertise.
have recently been invited to meet with a group of people, many
of whom I have known for some while through my work anyway, who
offer opportunities for better investment coupled with tax reduction
advantages, hitherto offered to their French clients. It was working
with one of these professionals - a Notaire, on behalf of one of
my clients that we got talking and the invitation arose.
Their point was that traditional investment
opportunities such as a Livret A or Assurance Vie have only offered
minimal returns for some years now which is unlikely to change anytime

The scheme is based around investment
in society and people rather than some large banking organisation
which returns little to the individual. I should say at this juncture

investment go directly into developing social and health projects
and areas like approved new businesses, thereby helping the Government
to regenerate the economy but they also give a better return to
the investors thereby helping to reduce the pension 'time bomb'
partly caused by poor traditional bank returns, which is an issue

If you pay over 1000 € per year
in income tax in France (excluding social charges ) and would like
to reduce or eliminate this tax OR if you wish to change your livret
A or savings account to a product with a higher rate of return OR
you have money you wish to invest efficiently and securely with
a decent return then I can arrange an appointment in which I will
happily act as a translator - at no cost to yourselves. My cost
is paid as part of any development costs within any scheme - should
you decide to proceed.
If you have any questions
or would like to arrange a meeting , please don’t hesitate
to contact me.
