A growing number of “global citizens” seek to protect their wealth and security by diversifying their investments, businesses, and personal lives outside their country of residence and/or citizenship. Numerous advantages exist for those who do so:
- Reduced portfolio risk through geopolitical diversification.
- Possible avoidance of foreign exchange controls.
- Legally guaranteed residence in a secure second country in the event of political or social unrest in their residence country.
- The potential for deferring or eliminating taxes on income generated internationally.
- Access to investment and business opportunities not available in their residence country.
- Enhanced protection from professional liability and other claims.
- Investment continuity in the event of disruptions in domestic markets.
- Increased personal and financial privacy.
Unfortunately, a great deal of misinformation exists on how and why you should “internationalize” yourself. Politicians and the mainstream media often portray those who invest or do business internationally in a negative light. Tax codes and securities laws impose numerous traps for the unwary. Even the most reputable accountants and attorneys often fail to realize that there are creative and safe ways to diversify outside your own country.
