ABOUT NOMAD CAPITALIST
What Does Nomad Capitalist Do?
Nomad Capitalist is the world’s most sought-after boutique consulting firm advising legal offshore tax planning, international relocation, second citizenship, and global citizenship.
We help seven- and eight-figure entrepreneurs and investors “go where you’re treated best” by providing holistic planning and implementation services to reduce their taxes, diversify and protect their assets, and increase their freedom and options with global backup plans.
We’ve also spent ten years producing free content to help and inspire people to become Nomad Capitalists themselves. You can learn more about our mission on our About Page.
Do You Sell Any Products?
We provide services, not products. We do not sell online courses, e-books, videos of our live events, or other information products. We’re a boutique consultancy that serves clients; learn more about our services here.
Do You Host any Live Events?
What is the best way to start learning more?
Since 2012, we have created thousands of articles, videos, podcasts, and interviews to provide how-to advice and ideas for free:
Additionally, Andrew Henderson has written a book – Nomad Capitalist – which aggregates our best information, ideas, and motivational strategies along with humorous anecdotes you can’t find anywhere else. You can buy the book on Amazon for your Kindle or as a paperback.
Is this stuff legal?
Yes, we take great pride in upholding the highest legal and ethical principles and all of our strategies are 100% legal. We work with a broad network of tested and trusted accountants, lawyers, and other professionals with expertise in the areas we work to help us create and implement fully compliant plans, as well as to identify any areas where you may be currently out of compliance.
Can I Ask a Specific Question?
We provide a lot of free materials on our blog, videos, podcast, and elsewhere that may help you if you wish to “do it yourself”. Due to the volume of inquiries we receive, we are not able to answer questions until and unless you engage us. (You probably shouldn’t accept free specific tax advice, anyway.)
We do offer a tried-and-tested service for those who want a plan of action for their needs and help to implement it. This is a paid service, and it’s not cheap (although for the people we help, it’s far cheaper than staying where they’re at).

Who Do You Work With?
We work with seven- and eight-figure entrepreneurs and investors who want a premium, ROI-positive solution. We are proud to have served 1,000+ clients from e-commerce millionaires to celebrities to billionaires. You should generally have a pretax annual income of US$500,000 or an investable net worth of US$1 million or more to qualify for our services. There are no such requirements to attend our live events.
How Much Does It Cost to Work With You?
As with any custom service requiring proper diagnosis, it is impossible to predict what your service will cost without proper diagnosis. Consider that any fixed price solution will be “one-size-fits-all” and can not be tailored to your needs. Many people come to us only after learning this the hard way.
Our service includes three elements:
- Creating a holistic Plan of action, so that every detail is taken into account.
- Executing that Plan for quick results, while avoiding the mistakes often made when “DIY-ing”.
- Providing ongoing support to help you keep things going long-term and stay compliant.
Generally speaking, our services start at US$25,000 and increase from there based on your needs.
You may also choose to pay more for an exclusive level of service or to work with Mr. Henderson and our senior team in person or at your location. Learn more about our services.
can i get a price quote?
Due to the bespoke nature of what we do, we don’t offer price quotes; each Plan is unique. We focus on creating value rather than selling you stuff you don’t need. Despite being a premium service we end up saving our clients money in the long run.
Our standard fee to start the process is generally $25,000, and we will work with you throughout the Plan creation process to advise you on the various costs and benefits, as well as ways to reduce costs by choosing less expensive options of higher quality, during our multi-week engagement.
Why do you have a minimum income or net work to work with you?
In order to fully tailor our services to our clients, we focus on high earners and high net worth individuals. It’s expensive to manage a global team of 50+ researchers, strategies, and do-ers who stay abreast of the latest trends in 100+ countries, and we want to only serve clients who can get a positive ROI by using our services. The high cost and knowledge required to run our business cause us to focus our efforts on those who can most benefit from it.
Why don’t you offer a service to middle class clients?
The cost of maintaining a well-trained, global R&D, strategy, and operations staff that understands the intricacies of this industry and constantly tests new programs is very costly and requires a premium service.
How Does Your Process Work?
Once you have retained us, we will prepare for and undergo an extensive diagnostic process to understand all areas of your business, lifestyle, and investments. We will discuss what you have, where you’re going, what you want, and what you don’t want.
From there, we will create a holistic Plan that covers all aspects of your internationalization. During the process of creating your Plan, we will follow-up with you to verify every detail and seek yur feedback.
A key focus of ours is creating Plans, not options. We will work to eliminate all but the best options so you are left with the single Plan that serves all aspects of your situation.
We have also invested significantly in behavioral studies to better understand what makes people act on their Plans. Our entire process is based around creating a Plan you will implement and love… because we know that a Plan sitting on the shelf doesn’t help anyone.
Why Do I Need to Complete an Application to Work with You?
The nature of being a public-facing brand with 17 million readers and viewers people year requires us to ensure we are serving those who are qualified for and prepared to utilize our services. We’ve created a straightforward onboarding application to help us understand your needs and ensure we can serve you before speaking on the phone. This saves you time if we’re not the best fit for you, and we’ve recently streamlined this process to take about seven minutes because we know you’re busy.
This process also helps you connect with your needs and wants so that you’re best ready for help. Some people have told us that the application process uncovered deeper issues to address, while others determined that they’re not really that serious about going offshore and saving themselves valuable time and money.
Do You Offer Hourly Consulting?
We believe strongly in the need for a holistic Plan that addresses your entire situation. Most hourly consulting fails to do this, namely because the incentive is to reduce billable hours spent rather than doing what is needed to solve the problem while achieving an excellent ROI.
Instead, we create holistic Plans that follow a tried-and-true diagnostic process we have created after years of helping hundreds of people not just gather ideas, but get results. We charge a flat-fee for each Plan, so there are no billing surprises.
Can You Help Me With Just [Insert "Thing" Here]?
We believe strongly in the need for a holistic Plan that addresses your entire situation. Many people who thought “I only need XYZ” later come to us when they realize they missed a key piece of the puzzle and wasted time and money.
As a result, we don’t offer one-off offshore bank account openings, corporate formations, or other services until you have created a Plan with us.
Why Should I Work with Nomad Capitalist instead of a Lawyer or Accountant?
Lawyers and accountants play an important role, but they are specialists, not generalists. We’ve found that most professionals speak in vague terms to protect themselves, leaving you with little information and a large bill.
Our focus is holistic; we don’t just handle your home country taxes, but we create a global picture that coordinates your entire business so that every piece of the puzzle fits together.
Nomad Capitalist is managed by a team of entrepreneurs, and all team members are trained to think like entrepreneurs. We have spent years honing our knowledge based on real personal experience, not theory, so we know what works and doesn’t work in the real world. That practical knowledge will save you time and money.
Can you refer me to an attorney/accountant/real estate agent in another country?
We’ve spent millions on R&D over a decade and our trusted network is our most valuable asset. We don’t share it with non-clients, but we’d be delighted to help you as our client.
Are You Just a Consultant, or Can You Help Me Implement?
We help people implement holistic Plans every day – from opening bank accounts and companies, to obtaining second passports, to filing tax paperwork.
Our approach is simple: Ready. Aim. Fire. Many people going offshore skip the “aim” part and end up wasting time and money because they failed to plan. We believe in planning first, implementing second.
Once we have created your holistic Plan, we can help you implement it by acting as a general contractor that coordinates between the numerous lawyers, accountants, and other professionals you will need.
Because we are entrepreneurs ourselves, we understand that the best use of your time is focusing on your business… not waiting in lines or getting an accountant in Hong Kong to understand your lawyer in California. Our team offers a bespoke service that handles everything from scheduling appointments to filling out paperwork.
Do You Have any Client Testimonials?
While many people we’ve helped prefer to remain private, we do have a number of reviews on our Testimonials page.
