Open any newspaper any day of the week and, unfortunately, you will see it: A political crisis is in the news. Sometimes it’s happening in a far off land.
And sometimes it hits you right where you live.
A political crisis causes more than just uncertainty. It can threaten you, your loved ones and wealth you’ve built. Warring political factions may freeze bank accounts, destroy the economy and cause widespread panic, chaos, destruction and death.

Problem: Jose lives in a Latin American country which is going through a political crisis because its president has cancer and is not recovering from his last surgery. His country is splitting in two as the political right wants new elections while the leftist government wants to remain in power without a new presidential election. Jose fears this may lead to a civil war or a military coup which will freeze all bank accounts, destroy its economy, and lead to death and destruction in all parts of his country. What can Jose do?
Solution: We can help Jose in several ways. Jose needs to get his money out of the country. We can assist Jose with setting up legal entities in tax haven countries in order to transfer his bank accounts to these safe havens which also have the benefit of not paying taxes on the earned interest and having anonymous ownership of the bank accounts.
Jose may also consider moving to another country to protect himself and his family from political upheaval. We can provide Jose and his family with Relocation Services. He may qualify for immigration to other countries in which we can investigate and present him with options for migration to a safer country.
