Re: Interactive brokers in Switzerland

I have a question about IB. For a non US citizen with investment of over $60,000 USD asset in US, he/she is subject to estate tax. I think there is a potential that since IB LLC is a US company and its assets are held in US you will be subject to this tax. When I opened my IB account, I was directed to IB UK. I am unclear on where the assets are held when you use IB UK. I would like to avoid any possibility of having to pay estate taxes (not that it is a likely event) but why not be more cautious on the up front.
