We don’t like to tell you what to do with your money, so we will never recommend one bank over another. However, we work with a number of banks and E Money Issuers worldwide, and our experienced team can review your requirements and help to narrow down your options and introduce you to the bank you prefer. Ou.



In addition to the AEOI, many international private banks are now refusing to take American clients or clients that have any dealings with America – this is causing a problem for businesses who have had good banking relationships for years, but now find themselves facing closure – all because of the US FATCA rulings.

Times are changing, almost daily, and getting bank approval is more and more difficult.

However, at Octopus, we pride ourselves on our ability to adapt, to find new banking solutions and to stay ahead of the game for our clients.

Our experienced File Managers, understand what the banks expect to see, by way of KYC documentation and hold our client’s hands throughout the application process. They have a one to one relationship with our clients, who prefer the single point of contact. This helps to keep the flow of information running smoothly, alleviating the stress for our clients wherever possible.

Our File Managers are also able to advise if a client’s business model does not tick the right boxes for the bank they may have chosen from our list of options – and offer alternatives.

With our clients input and our File Managers experience, the majority of applications go off to the banks within 24 hours of our team receiving everything back from the client. The banks response time then varies from bank to bank, but on average, an application that is detailed, low to average risk, and has all the required paperwork, is currently taking approx. 2 to 6 weeks for approval by the banks compliance teams…. Some faster than others.
