Banking Services

We work with Standard Bank Isle of Man to help crew through what sometimes might seem an impossibly complicated process of setting up an offshore bank account.

International Multi-currency Offshore Bank Accounts

We signpost you to Standard Bank Isle of Man and their established multi-currency banking services:

  • Personal banking facilities without a regular administration charge for eligible crew (i.e. ‘expats’)
  • Multi-currency bank accounts – bank in the currency most convenient for you
  • Online banking, 24/7 – access to your accounts, regardless of time zone
  • Telephone banking – a convenient alternative way to bank
  • International VISA debit cards – Sterling, Euro or US dollars
  • Domestic and international payments – transfer funds worldwide
  • Direct and personal access to a Customer Service Relationship team
