You are faced with the huge task of saving for your future. Retirement plan options and mutual fund names are thrown around like mayflies and you are supposed to catch the best one out of the air. The restrictions put on these accounts are not for your benefit and you don’t have access to your cash. Andrew’s team can sift through the muck for you and help you to go where you are treated best. In the interview, Brendan finds friendlier people in Chiang Mai but he may still end up back in Australia. Finally in your questions, Marlo’s primary concerns related to  moving overseas are social security and healthcare. Currently in his 60’s, will he be able to get over the stigma that tv has taught him about offshore living and investing?
