WE LITERALLY WROTE THE BOOK ON GOING OFFSHORE
Nomad Capitalist is our best-selling business book that introduces readers to the concept of “go where you’re treated best”.
From legal offshore tax reduction to dual citizenship to frontier market business opportunities, author Andrew Henderson boils down to more than a decade of real-world, on-the-ground offshore experience. Chapters like “Do I Have to Become a Goat Herder?” make everything easy to understand. Chapters like “Choose Your Tax Rate” dive into specifics. And chapters like “The Nomad Code” teach you how the author lives this himself.
With 390+ pages, all newly updated for 2022, fresh with real-life anecdotes, wit, and wisdom, Nomad Capitalist is a must-read for any aspiring citizen who wants to start on the right foot.
STEP 1: ENHANCE YOUR PERSONAL LIFESTYLE
There’s no point in saving taxes if you can’t improve your lifestyle in the process. We dive into the basics of life as a Nomad Capitalist and how to create more freedom and happiness in your life.
It starts with the location-independent lifestyle covering how to break free from your home country and the excuses that hold people back, with a special focus on entrepreneurs who may think their business can’t be offshored. It continues to discuss how singles, couples, and families can move overseas or even travel the world, and how single people can even find better dating opportunities overseas.
The book also discusses tactical issues like second passports to increase your personal freedom and optionality and the oft-asked question about healthcare overseas, where Mr. Henderson offers witticisms from the road such as “just eat a Big Mac”.
STEP 2: KEEP MORE OF YOUR MONEY
Most people are paying far too much in taxes. That’s especially true if you’re a high-earner high net worth individual.
This section of the book focuses on how to reduce your taxes while protecting your taxes – “In other ways, just being smart” as one chapter describes – using tactics like offshore banking with a focus on legality and what actually works in the 21st century (hint: numbered Swiss bank accounts are out).
The book also discusses how to store assets ranging from precious metals to art offshore and welcomes readers to a world of international wealth and shares how they can take part. And of course, we share how to incorporate your business offshore and avoid common pitfalls.
STEP 3: GROW YOUR MONEY BY LIVING, INVESTING, BANKING, AND DOING BUSINESS OVERSEAS
Once you’ve optimized your taxes, assets, business, and lifestyle, it’s time to have fun and grow your wealth, and the third pillar of the book addresses just that.
You’ll learn how to have a home on every continent (“and a cattle ranch, too”) to not only enjoy what each part of the world has to offer, but to diversify your portfolio and increase your returns from rental properties, Airbnbs, and more.
Adventurous readers will enter the world of higher-probability frontier market entrepreneurship where the premise “if it isn’t risky, it’s too late” applies. You’ll also learn how to conquer dogma using witticisms picked up from years on the road like “the pigeons don’t speak English”.
This book was written to aggregate our best ideas and never-before shared stories into one place. It is designed not as a how-to guide but rather as a collection of insights, interesting stories, witticisms, and hard lessons learned from Mr. Henderson’s many years of living and traveling overseas.
Readers will enjoy a taste of the Nomad Capitalist Lifestyle, clear up common misconceptions, and get an idea of what’s possible (and what’s not) from someone who started from zero. It is not designed to replace a personalized client service nor does it share ever-changing specific details that would cause it to go out of date every other week.
FAQS ABOUT THE BOOK

Nomad Capitalist condenses more information from more than 3,000 articles, videos, and podcasts into one convenient place. It also adds the human element by telling stories and anecdotes you won’t find anywhere else.

Anyone who wants to “go where you’re treated best”. This book is written for beginners, so don’t worry if you don’t know much about global citizenship or going offshore.
However, the book is also designed to add depth to the knowledge you may already have by shedding light on common misconceptions and mistakes even experienced offshore gurus make. Therefore, it is suitable for any audience.
DOES THE BOOK OFFER SPECIFICS, OR JUST CONCEPTS?
The book discusses many specific topics, from second passport opportunities to specific offshore banking countries to use (and avoid), to specific countries Andrew recommends for business and investment. The book also provides context to situations that are usually discussed from a purely financial view, in order to give you the knowledge to make more informed decisions.
That said, no book written for the general public can or should provide you with a specific plan for going offshore. The book is not intended as a substitute for high-cost offshore planning services that are tailored to you. For more information on our customized services, click here.

No; while the book discusses specific tax concepts and benefits of living overseas, it is intended for anyone who wants to apply any global citizenship principles to their life. That could mean diversifying your bank account into another currency, buying a summer home in another country, getting a second passport, or simply dating people from other cultures.
WHAT FORMAT IS THE BOOK AVAILABLE IN?
The book is available in paperback and Kindle versions. While we do have plans to release an audiobook, it’s currently not for sale.
