I believe responsible people want safe, honest, legal ways to regain control of their personal and financial privacy. They don’t want to break the law – they just want to be left alone.
But the powers-that-be don’t want that, so they won’t let you… unless you take these steps…
What if everything you’ve worked for suddenly becomes the target of government confiscation?
What if the immoral fans of Liberal politics get their way and make everyone pay their “fair share”… taking your hard-earned money and giving it to those who don’t pay taxes at all?
What if a greedy, contingency-lawsuit-taking, green-eyed lawyer sets their sights on your “low-hanging” assets with a mind-numbingly high-claim frivolous lawsuit?
That’s when you’ll wish you had taken the “little” steps to protect yourself.
Because the authorities have pushed government confiscation to heights thought impossible even 10 years ago.
The immoral fans of Liberal politics are getting their way. Hard working folks are being forced to pay their “fair share.” (No matter how unfair that really is.)
And the lawsuits are flying. Millions every year. Ruining lives. Good people who did nothing wrong other than be in the wrong place at the wrong time… and perhaps being unprepared for such a problem.
(After all, 70% of the world’s lawyers live here. They need something to do with their time and there just aren’t enough proper cases for all of them.)
Make no mistake: If you have a net worth of at least $100,000 – like one in every three Americans – you are a target.
And if that’s the case, this letter will be the single most important thing you read this year...
Because it shows you how to avoid becoming one of the victims.
Rather, it gives you your power back. It lets you take back the rights “they” have stolen.
That’s where I come in.
My name is Mark Nestmann.
For the last thirty years I’ve helped more than 15,000 concerned Americans protect their wealth from growing government cash grabs in a number of ways...
Including the use of international wealth protection strategies.
Why is this so important?
Because it’s now obvious if your wealth is within reach, the government thinks they deserve a cut.
And they’re getting grabby...
A couple years back, the IMF specifically recommended Cyprus-style wealth confiscation to advanced economies as a way to improve public finances.
In their words...
The appeal is that such a tax, if it is implemented before avoidance is possible and there is a belief that it will never be repeated, does not distort behavior (and may be seen by some as fair). [Emphasis mine.]
They go on to recommend a 10% overnight haircut to all households with “positive net wealth.” Not just the rich – anybody who’s not broke or in the hole. And this isn’t an income tax – this is a total tax on everything you have. (Or at least, everything they can get their hands on.)
Not only that, the Feds expect your fellow Americans to support them! They’ll get it, too… All it takes is a look at the “99%” movement to see how much the rich – or anybody with money – are hated in our growing welfare state entitlement culture.
So they’ll come like a thief in the night...
The IRS is laying the groundwork right now. Starting with making sure they have tabs on every bit of money Americans have around the globe – not just in the US.
Take FATCA – the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act – which went into effect in July 2014.
It’s the IRS version of the NSA’s spying – but they’re doing it in broad daylight, and they’re doing it to YOU, a law-abiding American.
If you want to do business overseas...
If you want to have a second home overseas and get a mortgage to help you pay for it, or keep cash in a local bank for convenience while you live there...
If you want to do anything outside the United States that requires you to have any sort of relationship with a financial institution based outside the US...
The IRS now has surveillance measures being put in place to track where every dollar you have goes around the globe.
And their message to the world is...
If you don’t tell us where Americans are keeping their money, we’re going to steal – ahem, withhold – 30% of any and all money transferred out of America.
Banks based in America have been forced into compliance...
Banks and other financial institutions outside America are taking sides...
Either comply with the Americans in a global financial surveillance program, or...
Simply refuse to do business with law-abiding, upright American citizens.
I’m even seeing expat clients (folks who have always been very careful to stay within the law in their use of offshore strategies) having their foreign mortgages called in by banks who are simply cutting off all relationships with Americans.
So, if you care about preserving wealth…
If you believe that it’s the government’s role to serve, not to meddle...
And if you want to protect your hard-earned money and not give away the fruits of your labor to support the growing United Welfare State of America...
Then this is beyond urgent…
This is the single most comprehensive collection of every fully legal trick and strategy I’m using to help my clients go offshore. 400+ pages.
It’s what former presidential candidate Ron Paul told his followers to read, saying it would be the…
“Single most effective step you can take to ensure your personal and financial privacy.”
Except now it’s expanded and updated with new and highly practical how-to information.
It shows you exactly what to do right now to protect your wealth from the threats you’ll face this year.
They could be from the government.
They could be from criminals and thieves (who, thanks to the internet, are literally a click away).
Or they could come from the super-hyperactive legal industry that makes a living by separating you from your hard-earned money through the so-called “justice” system.
In other words, it’s is a comprehensive blueprint for financial survival in a hostile environment…
Hundreds of hours have gone into the current version. Some pages have taken an entire day to do. (I kid you not.)
After all, it’s not just about the writing – there’s the research and verification too, the sorting through often-conflicting governmental gibberish to find the facts and develop the solutions.
In many ways, it’s like a movie: It can take months (and sometimes even years) to put out a fully polished cinematic masterpiece.
Even more, this resource contains the lessons learned from 30 years in the business, something few so-called “experts” out there can match.
In other words, there is literally a lifetime of experience of doing the grind each and every day. That was my price of development, but it certainly doesn’t have to be yours.
Quite the opposite. In fact…
It drives me crazy when industry folks make things difficult for their customers to understand. While it might make the experts sound smarter, it’s not particularly helpful.
The Lifeboat Strategy is different. As much as possible, I limit the use of jargon. I try to present things as clearly as possible so you can get the answers quicker.
That way, you can enjoy the benefits quicker. You can expect to cut your learning curve down to half or even a third of the normal time it takes to learn how to protect yourself.
In fact, if you’re really serious, you can read the whole thing in about a weekend.
And – if you’re anything like the thousands of Lifeboat fans from the past – you’ll soon know more than most high-fee tax planners, investments advisors, and lawyers in practice all over this country.
So, that preamble aside, let’s get into the meat of this opportunity.

(Almost) everything you’d ever need to know about keeping your offshore activities 100% legal and above board.
Here’s what to do if you ever accidentally become “non-compliant.”
I could go on, but you get the idea. 400+ pages of that covers pretty much anything you’d ever want to know about asset and privacy protection. Built specifically for unstable times like now. Where black swans seem to be landing left and right.
It really is a full-course, 5-star meal – yet somehow available at a greasy-spoon price (more about that later).
Indeed, if there were ever the ultimate reference guide for the “Plan B,” this is it.
For more than thirty years, I’ve helped 15,000+ customers and clients all looking for their Plan B – just in case things go bad... personally and/or for the country as a whole.
That includes top lawyers, accountants, and executives of large and small companies. But it also includes retired grandmothers, upcoming entrepreneurs, and highly paid employees who could see the writing on the wall.
Needless to say, that’s a lot of real-world, “in the trenches” experience.
And that’s exactly what you’ll find in The Lifeboat Strategy.
It gives you everything you need – in one convenient place. And with only one simple goal:
To give you full freedom, full power, and full control over your financial future. Period.
If you've spent any time researching the offshore world, you've probably heard of Bob Bauman. Now the legal counsel to The Sovereign Society, Bob was a pioneer in what we now refer to as the “offshore education industry.” He’s written of me:
I’ve known Mark Nestmann for more than 15 years and have to say, when it comes to protecting your assets, privacy, and personal freedom, he’s one of the best in the business. His track record speaks for itself.
More importantly, though, he truly cares about the people he works with. He goes the extra mile to make sure that anything he does really benefits his customers and clients. It’s why I’m happy to recommend him and his products to anyone looking to go offshore the right way.
Simon Black of industry leader SovereignMan.com says:
It is definitely worth the price if you are serious about saving your ass and your assets.
And former Congressman Ron Paul has written:
I found it to be very well written and informative, and it should be very beneficial to its readers.
And while such professional comments are appreciated (and great for the ego, I should add), it’s the readers who actually use the techniques who really get me going:
“Mark, again you blow me away with your awesome way of explaining things. You give me hope that maybe Big Brother won’t win this one.” – V.S.
“This information you share with your readers is very informative and helpful for those of us who wish to diversify our financial and offshore needs.” – J.V.
“I could not be happier with the results your guidance has produced for me.” – C.J.
“My head has been spinning after reading your books. I feel like I’ve stepped out of the Matrix into the real world.” – M.L.
“This manual clearly identifies the steps required to do everything AND keep it legal to prevent entanglements with the IRS, Homeland Security and other Fed agencies.” – J.P.
“The Lifeboat Strategy is an excellent resource, and it should be in the library of anyone who is serious about financial security.” – S.L.
… and this is a tiny sample of the many, many positive comments I’ve received over the years.
When you try out The Lifeboat Strategy, here’s what you can expect:
Hefty 400+ pages of asset- and wealth-protection strategies.
Accuracy Monitoring Service
One trouble with any resource like this is how fast it can get out of date. Ten years ago, things didn’t change so much from year to year. Nowadays, they seem to change on a month-to-month basis.
That’s why, starting back in 2011, I made it a habit to go through the entire manuscript at least once a year and painstakingly update everything important.
I’ll continue doing that here as well.
At least once a year or as market conditions require, you’ll receive an updated version of the Lifeboat Strategy to incorporate these newest relevant threats, strategies and opportunities, too.
This report delivers the most up-to-date facts, figures, and on-the-ground intelligence from the best asset protection jurisdictions out there – the same ones I recommend to private clients and use myself. You’ll learn:
The 11 best countries for wealth protection and preservation
How to disconnect yourself from the United States in just 4 steps
The surprising yet subtle difference between legal systems – and how not knowing the difference could put your wealth at risk
Which asset havens are likely to survive – and which will probably fade away
Over the last few years, I’ve received a ton of questions about the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (aka FATCA) – and how it affects offshore freedom seekers.
In the simplest terms, it makes any semblance of financial privacy a thing of the past.
It’s simple extortion. Offshore banks are now required to report all American clients’ transactions, or get a haircut on any money transferred to them. Banks inside the US are being forced into compliance to stay in business. Banks that don’t comply – inside or outside the US – face draconian penalties.
Needless to say, that would be a bad business decision, so banks have either dumped all their US clients or signed up to exchange that information.
Talk about an invasion of privacy!
Thankfully, there are still a select few ways to hold assets offshore without triggering reporting requirements – neither the automated ones that FATCA requires of the banks nor any personal ones.
This is a strategy a number of my clients have already taken to store as little as a few thousand to, in one case, more than a half million dollars offshore.
It’s 100% legal.
It doesn’t involve any complicated and hard-to-understand “financial gymnastics” (which often involve trying to trick the IRS on a technicality – and can be a legal minefield).
It’s highly flexible. This is a viable strategy no matter whether you’ve got $5,000, $500,000, or even $5 million in assets you want to keep private.
Now, there is one downside: It’s not as convenient as an ATM card. Rather, this strategy is best designed for wealth you want to protect long term – at least 5–10 years.
And quite honestly, I don’t know how long this loophole will stay open. But if you’re serious about keeping some of your wealth offshore – in a 100% private way – it’s worth a very close look.
To help you do that, I’ve put together a report called How to Stay FATCA-Free. Inside, you’ll discover exactly how to free yourself from this privacy-invading legalese – and how to get started in as little as 30 days.
It’s yours free exclusively as part of this offer. (In other words, you can’t buy it – it’s available only in this offer).
Something Special for Action Takers
If you’ve read this far, there’s a good chance you’re quite serious about protecting your assets, family and personal freedom.
The fact that you trusted us with your attention confirms this. And I’m sincerely grateful that you’ve invested your time into reading my materials.
But I also wanted a tangible way to thank you. Only action takers have this opportunity.
So, when you choose to invest in The Lifeboat Strategy today, I want to give you these 3 extras:
Action Taker Extra #1:
Special Webinar with me (Mark)
Earlier this year, I hosted a very special webinar that served as a companion to The Lifeboat Strategy. We called it “Launching Your Lifeboat”. During the session, I:
Dug deep into 3 topics new to this edition of The Lifeboat Strategy. (Retirement Protection Planning was one of them.)
Took listeners through 2 case studies from my Private Wealth clients – so you can see real life examples of how my higher-level planning works. You should be able to take some lessons to apply to your own situation.
Answered a bunch of questions from those on the call.
Well, we recorded it. You’ll get full access as part of this special package.
Action Taker Extra #2:
The Top 10 Asset Protection Mistakes
I’ve spent 30 years in the asset protection business. And from helping thousands of clients, I’ve come to a startling conclusion: People keep making the same mistakes – mistakes that are costing them money.
I cover these top 10 mistakes with my private clients. But now, for the first time ever, I’ve compiled all of them into one convenient report for Lifeboat Strategy Action Takers. If you have at least $20,000 in assets, there’s a very good chance you’re making one or more of these errors.
Action Taker Extra #3:
The Lifeboat Strategy – Archive Edition
In previous versions of The Lifeboat Strategy, I spent a lot of time talking about the history driving us to consider stronger asset protection. We completely changed gears and got a lot more practical. Now there’s a much heavier focus on giving you the tools needed to win this game.
But that’s not to say the history isn’t valuable. I just didn’t want to have the Lifeboat reach 1,000 pages or more. So here’s what I’ve done.
You’ll get the previous version of The Lifeboat Strategy in digital format. It is NOT to be used as an active reference – too much is out of date. But if you’re interested in the backstory, you’ll find it all here.
In tangible terms, this “box of extras” is worth more than $700.00. But I want you to have it because you’re an action taker and people of action deserve just a little bit more.
The Lifeboat Strategy has always been a printed product. Because the world of asset protection tended not to change much, that worked well for a long time.
Sadly, those days are over. Important new developments pop up on a monthly or weekly basis… and it’s really hard to keep a printed product up to date.
I don’t want to send you something out of date.
That’s why I made the decision to stop printing the Lifeboat Strategy. Instead, you’ll get everything on a USB stick.
When you need to travel, it’s much more convenient than a big binder.
It’s viewable on your favorite device: PC, Mac, tablet computer or smartphone.
(Or you could print your own physical copy from any local Staples or Office Depot if you like.)
And of course, it ensures you get the most up-to-date version.
Clients routinely pay me upwards of $15,000 for a custom plan. And there’s usually a six-week delay to get an initial consult with me before such a service is even offered. My lowest-priced available comprehensive consulting service is $7,500… assuming you can get a spot.
And even though the current edition of The Lifeboat Strategy contains, in many ways, the same comprehensive strategies and recommendations that high net-worth clients pay me the big bucks for, it won’t cost you anything near $15,000 or even $7,500.
In fact, you can take home the entire Lifeboat Strategy package – including the extra report that goes in-depth on how to sidestep FATCA – for a very reasonable $397. That’s about less than the cost of just an hour’s worth of time from a middle-tier domestic asset-protection lawyer.
Why have I kept the price so low?
For two reasons:
First, because I’m able to spread out the cost of the hundreds of hours it took me and my team to create this product across thousands of customers, I simply don’t need to charge so much per unit.
Second, because this is important information and I want anyone who’s truly serious to be able to afford it. Does that mean that any old tire-kicker will think this is a great deal? No.
But if you’re an action taker like my best clients and friends, this is the best asset-protection investment you will ever make.
In fact, I guarantee it.
That’s a bold statement, I know. I have no trouble taking on the risk because I know – as do the many thousands of people who invested in the previous editions – that this is a highly practical, in-depth, and just plain useful program that will give you all the background you need to successfully protect your assets offshore.
But if you get everything and find you disagree, simply pack the materials up and send it back for a full refund, no questions asked.
“Wealthy Societies Are Never Prepared for a Radical Change for the Worse”
That’s what Ron Paul wrote back in 1990. More than a quarter-century later, we’ve started to see that radical change. We’ve seen our God-given rights taken from us as the United States slips into a police state.
We’ve seen it go from worse to worst.
And, quite honestly, I don’t know how long it will be before the Feds shut off all the avenues of escape entirely… Before the door slams shut. Every year seems to bring new regulatory restrictions that make it harder and harder to protect ourselves.
No doubt, there’s going to be wailing and gnashing of teeth when the average guy on the street wakes up to what’s really going on.
But I do know this: You won’t be caught up in the mess, because you’ll have taken the steps needed to protect yourself and your loved ones.
And The Lifeboat Strategy is here to guide you all along the way.
Reserve your copy today.
Founder, The Nestmann Group
P.S. To my knowledge, this is the most comprehensive asset-protection resource on the market. It has been for more than a quarter-century.
Join thousands of other freedom seekers just like you who have already benefited from the in-depth research and decades of in-the-trenches experience contained within.
But if for any reason, you don’t like it, just let me know and you’ll get a full refund. No questions asked.
