The Association of International Life Offices (AILO) is a trade organisation comprising international life companies, based predominantly in financial centres within the EU and UK Crown Dependencies, marketing products internationally cross-border.
Member companies offer multi-currency, tax-efficient products aimed at the international investor and medium to high net worth clients whose needs cannot be fully met by domestic providers.
AILO aims to promote the cross-border life industry and to encourage professionalism and high standards amongst its members through the provision of market, regulatory and taxation information and liaison with regulators and local trade associations.
The association's origins are rooted in the provision of financial services to international expatriates, a group whose needs, by definition, lie outside the constraints imposed by indigenously-based social security structures, currency restrictions and taxation systems.
This demanding and geographically wide-spread market has posed, over the years, every imaginable challenge to AILO's member companies, thus enabling them to gain invaluable experience in a wide range of product structures, methods of distribution, regulatory regimes, languages and cultures.
