About Offshore Living Letter

Offshore Living Letter is a publication of Live and Invest Overseas, coming straight from the desk of international investor Lief Simon. For nearly three decades, Lief and his colleagues have been providing in-depth, first-hand information on living, investing, and diversifying around the world. His twice-weekly free newsletter, Offshore Living Letter, covers these topics with direct and easy-to-understand language.

We will let him tell you a little more about himself and what you can expect from the Offshore Living Letter.

Lief SimonFirst, Lief Simon is my real name (you wouldn’t believe how often I get this question). Nothing that you will read about in the Offshore Living Letter involves shady dealings.

I’ve never done anything to break U.S. law — or the law of any other jurisdiction either, as far as I know. As much as I love spending time overseas, I like to be able to return to the United States to visit friends and family. My aim is to expand my options, never to cut any off. And, if you follow my lead, you’ll be able to come and go as you please, as well.

Second, yes, this stuff takes some figuring out…but it’s not as complicated as many in the business like to make out. The biggest challenge you’ll find is that the targets are always moving.

Over the last 30 plus years living and doing business around the world, I’ve built a network of reliable and expert contacts I trust — attorneys, bankers, tax consultants, and other advisors, both Stateside and in the jurisdictions where I spend time and money. These are the people who keep me up-to-date on important changes…as they happen. I know of no other reliable source where this kind of from-the-scene intelligence from the world’s top offshore havens is shared in real time by someone with real world, first-hand experience at all this.

Third, you don’t have to be a millionaire to take up the idea of banking, doing business, or investing offshore. There are different levels to this game. Only you will know what makes sense for your circumstances and what’s within your comfort zone.

Your strategy might be as simple as opening a bank account in another country. (You don’t even have to leave the United States to do this. You can open an account with a Belizean bank from the comfort of your own home– and without any minimum deposit.)

Or you can get more complex and diversify into real estate, precious metals, form an offshore corporation, move overseas, even acquire second citizenship, as I have…

Either way, the Offshore Living Letter will help get you started on your path to relying on yourself for your future’s prosperity…not some government.
