Global Invest

"RF simplifies investing abroad with Global Invest, an investment management service that broadens clients’ investment options to overseas markets."


In 2018, the Central Bank reduced the premium for the purchase of Investment Dollars from 12.5% to 5%. As a result, Bahamians are now able to externalize their investments for a 5% premium and 1 ½% stamp duty, or 1.3% per annum, assuming a five year investment horizon.

For persons interested in further diversifying their investment portfolios, improving returns on their assets and holding foreign currency assets, Global Invest offers:

  • Free, seamless and efficient approach to Central Bank approval and purchase of Investment Dollars
  • Access to RF’s international broker relationships
  • Wide range of international investment opportunities
