Andorra for traders and personal wealth management
Do you trade with equity, commodities, forex or even cryptocurrencies on your own account ? Whatever you are trading you will be bound to your screen and may work from home or from multiple locations as you have the flexibility to work from anywhere. If you are more tied to the opening of the markets than a physical location why not consider Andorra for your base of operations and as a choice of lifestyle.
Andorra has much to offer despite being not exactly easily accessible. However this is relative if you don't mind driving. The country is quiet, and the hustle and bustle is more than 2 hours away in cities such as Toulouse and Barcelona.
There is advantages for lifestyle, taxation but also for practical reasons. The country has some of the fastest internet in the world helping the infrastructure for your trading activity. Running IT structures with electricity consumption is possible with important cost-savings given the price of local electricity.

You may consider the set up of a wealth management company to manage your own funds and act as director on behalf of the company. However it may not be the best scenario depending on your personal circumstances and preferences.
