Non-US Citizen Solutions

Assets and Income of the wealthy are being targeted to fund government fiscal problems

In places like Argentina, Mexico, China, and Venezuala, assets of the wealthy are being targeted to fund government fiscal problems. Citizens of these countries are looking for investments and assets that keep their wealth out of reach of their local jurisdictions. One Innovative Strategy is to use a Permanent Life Insurance policy from an A-Rated, Offshore-domiciled insurance company. These policies are denominated in US Dollars and the cash value earns a competitive interest credit. Additionally, US tax law does not govern these policies. The cash value is creditor protected and beyond reach of most jurisdictions.
