  • Q: I live in Toronto Canada. Want to open a savings account in Argentina for 1 yr. how do you do it? The procedure? Should I go through the Argentina Embassy in Toronto?

    Reply Adugna from Scarborough, Canada
    • R: The interest rate may be high, but that inflation is crazy and it could easily go much higher within one year and potentially leave you with a loss at the end of one year. You still have to get your money out of the country at the end of the day. :-)

    Q: I have heard that these rates seem ultra-attractive. But the devil is in the details! Inflation at 22% and above each year; and restrictive clauses in the fine print of the Account Contracts (for example, regarding withdrawals/repatriation of funds) and, and 'unusual' (but secretly planned) government legislation restricting repatriation of these Accounts' funds outside the country or into US dollars (for example) will mean that you will average a LOSS on such 'investments.' IS THIS TRUE?
