For the safest protection, you should keep a portion of your assets in
an international jurisdiction. International family wealth planning has
been popular for 2,000 years, originating with the Roman emperors who
relocated their fortunes to international lands to preserve their riches
for their descendants.
International wealth protection is far more popular today, primarily because
of our lawsuit explosion. Trillions are now protected in various international
financial centers (IFCs) whose Asset Protection laws attract wealth from
less-protective countries. Each year we find more Americans seeking international
Asset Protection and international investing opportunities. They realize
that ‘going international’ can be the safest place for their
money in these unsafe times.
Unfortunately, one of the impediments we have to sound Asset Protection
planning is the client – or their ill-informed advisors –
who nonsensically believe shifting wealth internationally is somehow illegal,
unsafe, or only for tax evaders, money-launders or other assorted criminals.
That’s why we frequently have to re-educate our clients or their
advisors on the benefits of international planning. That is why education
is a major part of what we do.
