The days when banking secrecy was one of the strengths of financial institutions is part of a recent past that will never come back. Therefore, the farewell to anonymity is definitive. Today, opening a bank account abroad is very complicated, because countries that impose heavy taxes on their citizens have pushed to impose new global regulations that requires banks to verify the profiles of their customers and to repeatedly check where the saved funds comes from. Moreover, now that banks know they can be held accountable for the actions of their clients, they are much more cautious when identifying new clients and their activities.
International regulations provide huge fines to banks that don’t comply with the new established financial policies.
