Financial consultant Hoyt Barber is a tax-haven guru and offshore-funds protection specialist. You can use his hands-on methods to reduce or even eliminate your US taxes by moving your capital to Belize, the Cook Islands, St. Kitts-Nevis, Panama, Dominica or other tax havens and by relinquishing your US citizenship. Despite his solid financial counsel, Barber takes up a lot of space with discordant political predictions of America’s fiscal doom that may strain your patience, credulity and patriotism. getAbstract finds his asset protection strategies potentially interesting, but we'd point out that as usual the opinions expressed in the abstract are those of the author alone.

In this summary, you will learn

  • What pitfalls to avoid when adopting an offshore capital protection and preservation strategy.
