Nestmann Library

Here’s why you can’t trust most so-called “offshore experts”

An important letter for anyone who is considering moving themselves or their money out of the US… or who already has.

The honest, no-BS view of someone who’s been in the business for 38+ years.

Dear Friend,

A man was considering our services a few days ago.

He was a blunt sort of man and asked blunt questions.

Specifically, he said,

“There are so many so-called ‘experts’ out there. How do I tell you guys apart?”

At first, I didn’t know how to respond.

Then I thought of something.

I opened up my computer and let him have a look at something no client has ever seen.

My private library of offshore information.

He signed right there.

38+ years in the business doesn’t mean a hill of beans if it didn’t result in this…

Our services tend to attract a certain sort of client.

They tend to be free thinkers.

And value freedom.

They tend to be skeptical too. They “trust but verify.”

If you verify us, you’ll see that we’ve been in this business longer than almost anyone else still practicing.

We’ve seen the industry change greatly in that time… and have had to adapt time and time again to a new reality.

But telling you this doesn’t mean anything.

Showing you is more important.

And having that client experience… of showing him the library instead of just spouting my credentials… gave me an idea.

Why don’t I give you the keys to my library too?

We use it when we…

… start working on a client file

… prepare for a client call

… brainstorm new articles, reports or white papers.

It contains the database of companies we’ve researched, referred to, and avoided.

And, for the first time ever, I’d like to open it up to you.

38+ Years in the Making

How do you tell a real offshore expert from a fake? (There are so many of those.)

Have you ever wanted to know how to get a residency in Bermuda? (It’s doable, but tricky if you don’t know what you’re doing.)

Have you ever been confused about the various Citizenship by Investment programs? (Most clients are at the beginning.)

So many questions.

Now all the answers are at your fingertips.

Easy to find.

Easy to use.

Blunt but balanced.

So that you can make an informed decision.

Have you ever wondered…

  • …How to buy real estate in Mexico?

  • …How to invest in international precious metals?

  • …Or which international asset classes don’t need to be reported to the US government?

Have you ever pondered…

  • … which country offers the best second citizenship?

  • … which second passport is the easiest to get?

  • … which popular second passport destination doesn’t actually give you a real passport?

Would it interest you to know…

  • … how to side-step the unwanted attention of the government?

  • … how to not accidentally have your assets seized.

  • … and how to avoid becoming a target in the first place.

Or perhaps you have other questions like:

  • … options if you’d like to have your money managed offshore.

  • … why so many offshore banks won’t work with US clients anymore – and which ones will.

  • … how our clients have escaped the US system once and for all.

The Nestmann library contains all these answers… with many more being added every month.

Here’s a sample of what you’ll find once you enter

2nd Passports & Citizenships

This the largest section of the library at the moment and includes everything you need to know on dozens of countries, including the most popular ones for American expats. That includes:

  • Antigua & Barbuda
  • Argentina
  • Belgium
  • Belize
  • Brazil
  • Bulgaria
  • Cambodia
  • Canada
  • Cayman Islands
  • Chile
  • Colombia
  • Costa Rica
  • Dominica
  • Dominican Republic
  • Ecuador
  • Egypt
  • Grenada
  • Italy
  • Jordan
  • Malta 
  • Mexico
  • Moldova
  • Montenegro
  • New Zealand
  • Nicaragua
  • North Macedonia
  • Panama
  • Paraguay
  • Portugal
  • St. Kitts & Nevis
  • St. Lucia
  • Thailand
  • The Bahamas
  • Turkey
  • Uruguay
  • Vanuatu


Expatriation – the giving up of your citizenship – is the only legal way to break free of Uncle Sam once and for all. It’s a major step. It’s also very popular among our readers.

This area of the library gives you everything you need to understand before you get started. From the broad overview to the details. Both written law as well as “interpretations” that immigration officers can use to either help or hinder your efforts.

Precious Metals

Gold and silver have had a rough stretch. But in times of stress, they are a proven asset class. However, keeping them all at home in the US can be risky. This section will explain how to move them offshore (or, if you’re getting started, how to buy them offshore in the first place.)

You’ll learn:

  • How much gold you should hold offshore… and how much to keep close by just in case.
  • Reviews of the major dealers out there, both domestically and offshore.
  • The all-important terms that can increase the risk to your holdings. Or reduce it.
  • Our preferred precious metals dealers too…

And plenty more…

Privacy Protection

It can be easy to ignore our loss of privacy over the past few decades. And when you think it couldn’t get any worse, it does.

Uncle Sam is rolling out face recognition systems nationwide and tracking our location through smartphone 24/7.

And Fortune 500 companies are making a fortune off this surveillance.

That’s why it’s so important to do what you can to keep what little privacy you can. This truly is one of the best all-around ways to protect yourself because it makes you less likely to be attacked in the first place.

In this section, you’ll learn how to protect your personal privacy, your medical records and, especially in today’s digital dependent world, your online footprint as well.

You’ll learn:

  • How to set up your smartphone to maximize privacy and security out of the box.
  • How to make your smartphone virtually invisible. (It sacrifices some of its functions, but it really minimizes surveillance.)
  • Which healthcare providers aren’t obligated to share your electronic health records with Uncle Sam. Especially if you have a high-deductible health insurance plan (or no insurance), you can save a lot of money using this strategy.
  • The biggest accidental ways you give up your privacy and make yourself more of a target.

Lawsuit Defense

Millions of lawsuits are filed each year. Some are valid. Many are not.

And the truth is, in a system shown to prey on people with savings, it doesn’t take much to deprive you of a nest egg that took you years, or even decades to build.

In this section, you’ll learn:

  • How to avoid a lawsuit in the first place.
  • What to do if it’s likely you will be sued.
  • How to protect yourself if someone comes after you.

Knowing this – and putting together a few simple steps – will help you sleep better at night.

Understanding Civil Forfeiture

Most people will never need to know about this. But if you’re one of the unlucky ones who will, you’ll be very glad you did.

This section shows how the government can legally seize any (or all) of your property, how to limit the chance it will happen to you, and how to fight back if it does.

Incidentally, I was actually a victim of civil forfeiture many years ago, or more precisely, the threatened victim.

In the late 1980s, I lived in Florida. My wife and I bought a house there. When I got a job in Chicago, we turned the house into a rental property.

We made the mistake of renting it to teenage drug dealers. Of course, we didn’t know they were drug dealers, but it didn’t matter.

We flew down from Chicago to clean up the mess. We booted them out of the house. Then we started to clean up.

The next day, two cops showed up at the door. They told us they planned to confiscate our house because of the drug dealing that was going on there.

It turned out they made an empty threat. We didn’t lose the house.

But for me, the incident started a lifelong obsession with what I believe is the most evil legal procedure in America.

This section will show you everything I’ve learned. And you can build your own civil forfeiture defense in advance so you can prove you’re innocent.

On the Ground Resources

Some of our customers come to us to become better informed. But many also want to be able to act on that knowledge.

That’s where the resource directory comes in. We’ve compiled hundreds of resources – from lawyers to accountants to international real estate professionals and offshore banking – all in one convenient place.

You’ll still need to do your homework and make sure the people you choose are the right fit for you. But having a list to start with already saves you a ton of time.

With New Content Added Every Month

New entries. New resources. Sometimes entirely new topics too.

Every month, we keep adding to the library.

After all, I’m sitting on 38 years’ worth of files. All of those have to be verified and updated before they are shared.

That will take some time.

But it’s all coming.

For now allow me to take you on a tour…

Here’s What You See When You First Sign In

The first thing you see when you log in is this:
Within each session are multiple areas. It looks something like this:
Then, when you click on any section, a list of relevant articles pop up. Here’s what comes up when you click on the “Further Information” section of the second passport & citizenships section:

Each article then contains all the information, including perhaps the most important part, when the information was last updated.

All of this is designed to make it really easy to find the information you need without any fluff.

But there’s more…

The hardest part of learning what option is best for you is getting the right information.

We often get emails and phone calls from people who have read about some “amazing” offshore strategy and want us to help them implement it…

… only to learn that it doesn’t actually exist… or is illegal.

Either they got the idea from really old information prior to a rule change.

Or they got suckered into something that won’t work for them.

Or in a few rare cases, it’s a plain ol’ scam.

The Nestmann Library makes this a thing of the past.

First, all of our content is regularly reviewed for accuracy.

Some things need to be updated often. But others only once in a while. We have a different update schedule for each.

Second, every article is marked with the last time of update.

That gives you confidence that the rules haven’t changed since the last time the document was updated.

Because, at the end of the day, the goal is to give you a fair picture of what’s actually possible and what’s not. Blunt but balanced perspective on what’s possible, what’s not, and what’s likely to work in your situation.

You certainly don’t want to take action based on false information that’s not going to work out for you.

But that’s not all. Here’s what else you get with the Nestmann Library:

Hundreds of articles over dozens of topics… with new content every week

Every week, you’re getting more and more valuable content from all over the world of offshore (not to mention the best of domestic asset protection planning and privacy strategies). It might be about banking, or trusts, or privacy or second residencies.

Either way – whatever’s new — we’ll regularly let you know (by email.) Or you’re welcome to check in with us directly.


All of this is in addition to the hundreds of entries you’ll find in there already… from big picture strategy to dozens of prospective resources to help you put your plan in place.

A view from 38 years in the business.

It’s hard to walk around without tripping over an “offshore expert” these days. Some know what they’re doing but most don’t have a clue. (Some don’t even seem to have a passport and have never travelled. I realize how crazy that sounds.)

Look, I don’t want to pick on anyone, but it’s simply the truth: there are a lot of crooks and fakes in this business.

We’ve been at this for 38+ years now. You don’t last this long unless you know what you’re doing.

You get the benefit of that experience with this service.

You can ask us questions.

Most offshore experts serve you up a newsletter or two and leave you to it. But what if you have trouble finding something you read about months or even years ago?

Although we’ve made it as easy as possible to search the library, maybe sometimes you just won’t be able to find what you’re looking for.

As part of this offer, our customer service team will be there to help you find the right information.

With no additional fee.

Reviews of the most important companies in this space.

It’s very common to have someone write to us sold on a strategy but not sure where to turn to implement it.

There are certain things we do in-house (economic citizenship programs especially), but for the most part, we rely on specialists in different areas to help clients put the solution together.

Over nearly four decades, we must have met them all.

And every time we want to work with someone new, we create a file on them. We research and add notes.

As part of the library, you’ll have the opportunity to look up those companies.

As you can probably guess, this is a very labor-intensive process. We haven’t got them all in there yet, but we’ve already got quite a few… and will continue to add more as time goes on.

Here’s what happened when we first introduced this to clients.

We first started working on this in the spring. By summer, we had developed enough of a prototype to start showing a few clients and get feedback.

For the most part, they were quite happy. But they also gave us some really useful feedback that’s now built into the library.

Through this process, they asked us a lot of questions. I picked a couple of the most common ones in case you have the same questions too.

“What if I have a question you haven’t answered?”

That’s easy! Simply let us know and we’ll address it in an upcoming library update.

“How hard is it to find what I need?”

We’ve really tried to make it as easy as possible.

But if you can’t find what you want for any reason, just get in touch and we’ll track it down for you!

“How is this different than what’s offered by the other offshore experts out there?”

Well, there are three big differences.

  1. This is based on 38 years (and counting) of experience. Almost no one practicing today can say that.
  2. It leverages our global network of contacts to give you accurate, on-the-ground perspectives that the many “arm-chair experts” can’t match.
  3. It’s not like a newsletter or book that gets old and outdated. We regularly review and update the entries to make sure that the information you get is current and correct.

“How can you be sure the information is up to date?”

Our company has a dedicated research department that keeps track of such things and schedules our library for review on a regular basis.

Not only that, but you can see – in every article – when the last update took place.

“Is there a guarantee?”

Yes. 60 days full money back.

“How much will this cost?”

How do you value someone’s life work?

It’s not easy. But here’s how we figured it out.

My standard hourly billing rate is now $750 per hour.

It’s taken me hundreds of hours to put this together. Now, yes, I am supported by a really good team, but still, there’s a lot of time here.

And it still takes hours every month keeping it up to date.

The price needs to reflect that… without being out of reach.

And after some intense discussion around the office, we agreed on a price of $1,500 for lifetime access.

That’s two hours if we were to sit together here in Phoenix.

But instead, you get access to ALL of my knowledge… plus ALL of the updates, forever.

Is that too high for some? Yes.

But the truth is, if you’d struggle to pay for something like this, you probably can’t afford to do much planning either.

I’m sorry to be blunt about that. But after 38 years, I’ve learned most clients prefer I’m straight forward. That saves them time and energy that could be spent elsewhere. 

Protected by a full money-back guarantee

You’ll have up to 60 days to try it out. If you aren’t thrilled with the quality of our product, simply let us know and get a full refund.

To get started, simply click the button below:

Could this be the most comprehensive work I’ve ever done?

You might be able to call this my magnum opus – my best work.

Now, I like to think my work can always get better but I will say this: it’s certainly the most comprehensive.

It combines a lifetime of experience with nearly four decades in this business to bring you an ever-current view of every topic important to American clients who want to go offshore.

Investments. Precious Metals. Banking. Second Passports and Residencies. Expatriation.

Privacy Matters. Civil Forfeiture and Asset Protection.

With resources to help you get it done.

Lawyers. Accountants. Investment Advisors. Storage Solutions. Real Estate Advisors.

And so much more.

This Library gives you something so (unfortunately) rare in this space – the truth.

Not just the Pollyanna version but the real truth.

The good. The bad and yes, even the ugly sometimes.

We’ll tell you what’s safe to consider… and what might land you in hot water.

Now I’ll admit – it’s not cheap. But it’s forever… The library as it is now. As it will be tomorrow. Or a year or two or three from now. You get lifetime access with your purchase.

It’s also without risk. You’re protected by our no-hassles 60-day money back guarantee – if you don’t love it, you get a full refund.

There’s really no way you can lose here.

Well, maybe one way. By not at least trying it.

I don’t think that’s a mistake you’ll make though.

Mark Nestmann

Founder, The Nestmann Group

P.S. Just a few of the comments we’ve collected over the years from happy customers, clients and colleagues:

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 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.

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.
