Financial Planning for Global Expatriates

Expatriates face a unique set of financial challenges, resulting from their global lifestyles and great opportunities too. Expats have to navigate an often complex and confusing regulatory and product landscape. Many people don’t even know where to start.

In a career spanning 20 years working with private clients in the world’s leading cities, Michele has acquired a deep knowledge of personal international financial planning. She uses this experience to help her clients optimise their finances to suit their needs and lifestyles.

Michele is always available to her clients – at the click of a button.

If that’s the kind of help you want with your financial affairs, get in touch with Michele.

International Investment

Partner & Senior Investment Strategist

Payal is a full Partner in the Michele Carby Practice. She works directly with clients on their investment strategy and personally manages over $130mn of client assets.

After graduating from the London School of Economics, Payal worked as an investment analyst at Goldman Sachs before moving to Dubai to join Holborn Assets.

Payal’s investment philosophy is not to attempt to outsmart the markets but to stay in sync with them. In practice, this means shadowing the market in terms of risk at any given time but looking for the additional value available by applying a blend of active management, detailed market analysis and knowledge. This strategy has been historically successful in providing our savers and investors with above average market returns that stay within their risk parameters.
