Three years ago this week, an unexpected virus wreaked havoc around the world and caused a global pandemic to be announced.
People were locked in their homes.
Jobs and incomes were lost.
Fortunes were (temporarily) wiped out in the stock market.
Businesses were brought to a standstill without a supply chain.
Governments responded, forcing lockdowns at home and even lockdowns of entire countries.
Passports often became practically worthless (if your country even allowed you to leave), with travel options shut down for many, especially Americans.
Some governments have even engaged in revisionist history, claiming they were more open than they really were. (For example, when Florida was still locked down, Malaysia was re-opening).
Three years later, the pandemic is all but over, and so are the lessons most of us learned during it.
These last few days brought about a new panic: about our wealth. The same wealth that took a volatile turn during the pandemic alongside our freedoms is now in play as stock markets and regulators respond to three bank failures in the US.
Just as with the virus, these bank failures and the panic that followed happened basically overnight for most people. In some cases, the writing was on the wall in hindsight, but it’s too late for hindsight.
I’ve spent more than a dozen years personally exploring some of the world’s best places to diversify wealth and personal freedom so when things like this happen, I have diversification and I have options.
When something bad happens, there won’t be months or years to respond. There will be hours.
That’s why you need a Plan to protect yourself before it’s too late.
Have a “Plan B”
When the worst comes to the worst, you need to be able to pack up and leave in a hurry.
Having a Plan B means you have a backup plan for your life, family, finances, and future.
It means you have options when things go wrong.
At Nomad Capitalist we specialise in holistic Action Plan creation; plans that encompass everything from second citizenship to overseas property and asset protection.
This is because we know how interconnected the world now is, and how complicated your finances can be, so it’s vital that everything is planned out right down to the tiniest detail.
It’s not about grabbing a backpack and dashing to the airport in a panic, it’s about carefully planning out everything from travel arrangements to offshore banking solutions so that, whatever may come, you have the option to reboot and start a new life overseas, with most if not all of your assets intact.
Step 1: Obtain Second Citizenship
You might have the nicest penthouse apartment in the world, but do you want to be stuck there if another lockdown comes, or would you rather be someplace warm and spacious with a lovely pool?
During the pandemic, those who had second citizenships often found it easier to travel than those who were subject to just one country.
Having more travel rights, and more rights in general gives you more freedom so that, if things go wrong, you have the right to travel overseas and live and work someplace else.
Nomad Capitalist specializes in helping you obtain a second citizenship, ensuring that you are fully prepared to face any challenges that come your way.
Step 2: Buy Overseas Property
I also recommend maintaining various properties around the world that you can escape to in times of crisis.
While second citizenship gives you the right to travel, even at times when travel is restricted, having a second home means you can travel to that home.
This gives you options and flexibility and can comfort you when things get tough.
It helps that many countries offer flexible residence and citizenship by investment programs with additional incentives for real estate investment.
Done properly you can cross off both step one and two in just a few months; obtain a second citizenship and passport while also purchasing property which you can either keep as a second home or sell on later for a profit.
And because we’ve already done the research for you, there’s no need to spend months and months looking at different options. Get in touch today and we’ll find the best option and get the wheels turning right away.
Step 3: Offshore Banking
Having fully legal offshore banking is a must for hedging against risk. Recent events, such as the Silicon Valley bank collapse, have shown that US banks are not as safe as we’d like to think.
I recommend offshore banking in secure countries like Switzerland and Singapore, which offer many benefits and are an excellent way to diversify your assets.
Plus if you’re going the residence or citizenship by investment route you’ll need to to set up a bank account in your chosen country anyway, in which case get in touch with us and we’ll be able to advise on the best options available, in whichever jurisdiction you prefer.
Step 4: Asset Protection
The pandemic proved, once and for all, that the idea of “that could never happen over here” is an illusion.
Governments shut down entire countries. And if they can do that with minimal resistance from the general population that begs the question – what else can they do?
Listen, we have zero time for conspiracy theories at Nomad Capitalist but we certainly take a keen interest in history.
We’re not preppers, we’re pragmatists.
And history has shown again and again, that with emergency powers comes the ever-present danger that those powers can be abused, while the general population sits idly by.
Protecting your assets by diversifying your portfolio across international borders is therefore a wise strategy, and we specialize in that here at Nomad Capitalist.
Our highly specialized services can help you secure your financial future by safeguarding your wealth and ensuring its growth across the globe.
Step 5: Diversification Of Assets
Having all your eggs in one basket is a recipe for disaster. Diversification of assets is essential for minimizing risk and protecting your wealth.
There’s a lot of interest in buying gold right now from investors, from governments and from the Chinese government in particular.
That makes gold interesting from an investment perspective. And it’s a popular “safe-haven” investment in times of crisis. But does that mean you should invest all your money in it? Of course not.
I have gold storage in different locations, but I also have real estate, stocks and various other assets – the important thing is to have a broad portfolio of assets that’s also geographically diverse.
This way, when the next big shock comes, sure, you might lose some of your wealth, but not all of it, because you’ve got it more carefully spread around.
Look, these shocks aren’t stopping any time soon, whether its political shocks like Brexit, societal shocks like the 2020 pandemic, geopolitical shocks like the war in Ukraine, or the growing potential for economic shocks caused by high government debt, the climate crisis, or disruptive technologies.
Diversification of options, citizenship, ways to travel, places to travel to, second homes, banking, and asset protection, the key point is to tie it all together so you’re fully prepared for whatever comes your way.
At Nomad Capitalist, we’ll do all of that for you. With an Action Plan for you and your family, our team of experts will create a holistic Plan B that’s specially tailored to your specific needs and circumstances.
I urge you not to waste any more time. The world isn’t going to slow down, so neither should you. So get prepared, and contact us today.
We can help you create a Plan B to give you peace of mind and protect your business and family’s future.
Don’t wait until the next crisis hits. It might be too late.
