A Special Invitation for Sovereign Man E-Letter Subscribers....
“Join my Inner Circle...and get my most valuable actionable advice for building and preserving your wealth -- and protecting your privacy -- offshore.”
--Simon Black, Editor, Sovereign Man
Dear Notes from the Field Reader:
In the last 18 months, I’ve personally visited over 60 countries.
While there, I did business with a President and an ambassador, met with several diplomats, briefed sovereign fund managers, flew an aerobatic stunt plane, started several companies, hitchhiked in Bogota, trained with professional Thai boxers, took a train across the Orient, and made several lucrative, invitation-only private investments.
I also met with bank presidents in Switzerland and Singapore, lectured on entrepreneurship and free market economics in Eastern Europe, visited a Hollywood celebrity at his home in LA, personally provided venture capital to new start-ups, and learned about several exciting new opportunities to plant more flags and make even more money abroad.
For example, a few weeks ago you may have read in my “Notes from the Field” about a program the Latvian government recently unveiled to stimulate foreign investments: If you buy qualifying real estate, you can obtain Latvian residency leading to citizenship, and get a passport that gives you carte blanche to travel throughout Schengen, the borderless area of Europe.
This unusual shortcut to obtaining a Latvian citizenship is nice to know about, but what if you want to take action and actually make it happen? That’s where my premium membership service, Sovereign Man: Confidential, comes in.
Each issue of “Notes from the Field” contains a few hundred words you can read in 5 minutes. It tells you what to do, but not how to do it. Plus, my private contacts don’t like having their personal contact information publicly broadcast on the web.
Sovereign Man: Confidential goes in depth into the specific how-to details on our investment and business opportunities that “Notes from the Field” doesn’t have time or space for.
On the Latvian real estate opportunity, I introduced my Sovereign Man: Confidential subscribers to my friend Peter Morris, who is the founder of the largest real estate company in the Baltics. I grilled him mercilessly about the Latvian situation. And as a result my subscribers and I learned: what properties qualify … what loopholes we can take advantage of … how much you have to spend on a property to be offered Latvian residency … where to find the best properties in Latvia at the right prices. Peter Morris has even offered to serve as a real estate broker to Sovereign Man: Confidential readers who want to buy property in Latvia, and I included all his contact information in my article about him.
I simply can’t do that in “Notes from the Field”, which goes out to over 70,000 people each day. The response would totally overwhelm my trusted contacts and sources, such as Peter, who are already busy running their own successful businesses.
Travel is the greatest teacher, and the lessons I’ve learned make me uniquely qualified to help you plant multiple flags, take advantage of profit opportunities across the globe, and gain independence from any single sovereign state seeking to exert greater control over your fate and your fortune.
How Will You Thrive in The Age Of Turmoil?
What's happening right now in the world, what I call the Age of Turmoil, is going to last for a long time. There is no short-term solution; it will take many years for the world's major economies to hit the reset button.
Once the dust settles, I want you to come out on top.
One thing's for sure -- the old system is gone forever. The way to be prepared, the way to survive and thrive, is to become self-reliant. This means planting multiple flags, building trusted networks, achieving economic independence, developing valuable skills, and more...
As a subscriber to the Sovereign Man E-Letter, Notes From the Field, you know that the information we discuss is unlike anything else out there. I write to you from around the world about my own personal experiences, all with the goal of helping you achieve your own self-reliance.
Gathering all this intel isn’t cheap and it sure as hell isn’t easy, but I'm absolutely committed to the mission. Our new premium service is designed to up the ante like never before.
Your Instincts Are Telling You There's Something Wrong.
Fortunately, You're Ready To Act...
If you've ever been on a safari or studied animals in the wild, you've probably noticed that they have razor sharp instincts. For animals, sometimes their lives depend on their sense of awareness and instinct.
Whether it's a deer in the forest or herd of wildebeest in the Serengeti, animals have a highly attuned sense of danger. They don't know why, they don't know from what, but they can feel it... something out there threatens them.
Their survival depends on how closely they listen to their instincts...and on the actions that they take to prepare in those precious remaining moments before danger strikes.
I'm a strong believer in instincts. Human beings have incredibly carnal, intuitive reactions which have been developed over millions of years of collective experience. And though we are not wildebeest in the Serengeti, we, too, have a strong sense of awareness. We can feel danger.
We might not know when, or how, or who, but we know that something out there is threatening us. I feel it, and I'll bet you feel it too. And, like animals, the actions that we choose to undertake in the precious time we have remaining may seal the difference between destruction, surviving, and prospering.
No one has a crystal ball; no one can say exactly what will happen or exactly when it will happen. But I think, without a doubt, the world will look like a completely different place 10-years from now. I also believe that the majority of these changes will take place much sooner than anyone realizes.
One of the primary elements of true turmoil will be a collapse of debt-laden fiat currencies. Frankly, this is something that requires time, and a suitable replacement. China is already taking its renminbi for a test drive as a new reserve currency, and as China’s economy morphs into the world's largest, its currency will become the most dominant.
Consequently, this will cause a substantial decline in the US dollar, euro, yen, and pound, resulting in massive governmental interventionist policies. We have only scratched the surface of the types of measures that will come.
We don't need to look much farther than Argentina for an example; 10-years after its economy collapsed under the weight of an unrealistic currency peg, Buenos Aires went from being the brightest capital in Latin America to among the most disastrous.
The majority of this transition took place in the first few years after the collapse. Today, Buenos Aires is a different place altogether (despite what you might hear in other publications)... with crumbling infrastructure, blackouts, high crime, and an interventionist government that wants to control everything.
The Clock Is Ticking...Will You Be Ready?
In my assessment, we producers of the world have little time remaining.... Everything is accelerating, governments are getting desperate and the window of opportunity is clearly closing.
Fortunately, if you take action now, you can secure the future of the ones you love. In a short time, you can make all the preparations you need-- building your wealth (and I mean REAL wealth, not worthless paper), an escape pad offshore, a network of like minds, second citizenship, tangible skills, protected assets, and more.
I'd like you to join me, risk-free, by becoming a Member of SovereignMan: Confidential. Each new member who comes on board makes our action-oriented community stronger. The value that members have received thus far have saved them thousands each. I've found opportunities to open account without leaving home, back doors to accomplish more efficiently, and even exclusive substantial discounts for members.
Plus, your membership goes to support my commitment to deliver the types of contacts and information needed to survive and thrive this Age of Turmoil. So, if you like what I'm doing and want more, I'd like you to become a Member today.
The ultimate offshore tax and financial privacy haven
You might be comfortable living, working, and investing in the United States, the UK, Australia, Canada or wherever your home country is. But beware. As a “Notes from the Field” reader, you know there are many traps lurking in western nations that threaten both your wealth and your financial privacy. And do you really want to keep all your financial eggs in one sovereign basket?
When all your investments are located in U.S. banks and brokerage accounts, it’s just too easy for them to be seized by the IRS, the courts, or the plaintiff of a successful lawsuit against you.
Income taxes bleed away a third or more of your business and investment earnings each year. During high-inflation years, you may earn less, after taxes, than you lose in purchasing power.
Estate taxes can take up to 50% of what you leave and up to 75% of the money you earmark for your grandchildren. The damage to your family’s welfare may be even worse if a crushing bill for estate taxes forces you to sell off U.S.-based investments.
Plus, the near-impossibility of financial privacy leaves your wealth visible – and you vulnerable – to government bureaucrats and lawsuit predators. If a lawsuit is pressed, thousands of people may read the story of your financial life in the newspaper.
Sovereign Man: Confidential is the solution. It’s your guide to the best places on Earth to safely protect your life, your liberty and your assets.
According to a study by the Boston Consulting Group, $7.3 trillion is stashed in offshore banking centers. I continually travel the globe – and consult with my worldwide network of financial experts -- to get the inside story on which nations are favorable to not only Americans but anyone seeking asset protection and financial privacy, and which nations are indifferent.
We investigate opportunities in all corners of the world to find you the most compelling business, property, and investment deals. Frequently, we locate for our members investments and opportunities whose returns far outpace those of their American counterparts.
By diversifying our assets in multiple nations, we reduce the risk of the U.S. government (or any other) infringing on our freedom and confiscating our wealth. And we practice what we preach: We bank in Hong Kong … we own businesses registered in Singapore … the trust accounts are in Cook Islands … our e-mail servers are in Norway … credit card orders are processed in Singapore … web sites are hosted in Canada … and some domain names are registered in Switzerland. (Did you know that the Department of Homeland Security has commandeered a number of web sites?) No single government has control over our lives.
Here’s just a sampling of what you missed in recent issues:
Importantly, every one of our recommendations is strictly above board. Contrary to popular misconception, offshore investing is a legitimate activity and perfectly legal, as long as you follow all the rules. We lay out those rules for you and point you to professionals who can provide further help if you need it. So your sovereign diversification is bullet-proof and 100% legal. We even show you what records to keep!
As a Sovereign Man: Confidential Member,
Bonus #1: Opening an offshore trust - once difficult, now easy
Are you sick and tired of the IRS taking a huge chunk out of your paycheck – and every dollar your investments earn?
Now there’s an effective … and perfectly legal … way to fight back, protect your wealth, and keep your financial privacy safe from prying eyes: establishing your own offshore trust.
The benefits of having your own offshore trust are well known and thoroughly proven. Establishing your trust in an investor-friendly nation with low tax rates can save you a bundle in tax payments.
By restructuring your assets, you can protect your wealth. And many offshore havens have established strict rules for banking and corporate confidentiality, ensuring your financial privacy
Offshore trusts also offer protection against lawsuits, and make no mistake, a single lawsuit could wipe out every dime you’ve saved. It’s too easy for someone sizing you up for a lawsuit to learn the details of your bank account, your investments, and how you spend your money.
Now, if the thought of creating an offshore trust intimidates you, it really shouldn’t. For setting up your own offshore trust is surprisingly simple. You can do it without hiring a lawyer or spending thousands in legal fees
Of course, there are specific forms you need to complete to establish your trust – and they must be filed correctly. With your permission, I’d like to send you a FREE “Financial Offshore Trust Kit” that contains all the forms with clear, simple instructions for their completion – no special expertise or attorney required. Get the forms today, and you can begin enjoying the financial advantages of an offshore trust within a few weeks
In your Financial Offshore Trust Kit, you will discover:
With the Financial Offshore Trust Kit, you can file your own forms and establish your own offshore trust – on your own, quickly and easily – without paying a lawyer or financial advisor to do it for you. You even get an introduction to the number-one licensed trust company in Cook Islands, an ideal nation for your trust.
By using our Kit, you can begin enjoying the benefits of having your own offshore trust right away – including asset protection, tax reduction, and financial privacy.
What does it cost to establish an offshore trust? You could pay many thousands of dollars in attorney fees. Or use our Financial Offshore Kit. It regularly sells for $295. And it can save you 10X that amount.
But right now, a copy of the Financial Offshore Trust Kit is yours absolutely FREE … when you accept my offer of a risk-free trial subscription to Sovereign Man: Confidential, our new monthly advisory on offshore privacy and investing.
Bonus #2: Going Global - How to Internationalize Your Assets and Yourself
Doug Casey is a friend of Sovereign Man and his team of experts at Casey Research worked directly with Simon Black to put together an all-new report called Going Global: How to Internationalize Your Assets and Yourself.
In this report, they detail all the different ways you can protect your assets by moving them — and maybe yourself, too — out of the country. This is a comprehensive report covering many facets of internationalizing yourself and your assets. One of the important topics they'll cover is the:
Many mainstream investors think that buying a couple of stocks trading on Canadian exchanges or adding another mutual fund is diversification. They'll be the ones hurting the most when the full impact of the economic tsunami hits.
But this doesn't have to happen to you. So let me tell you about the five best ways to TRULY diversify your assets that you'll find in this book-length Going Global Report:
You see, most of these are opportunities your broker or financial adviser likely won't tell you about, simply because they're beyond his realm of expertise.
But diversifying in the way outlined above is now more IMPORTANT than ever.
Because what's hampering your ability to acquire wealth and keep it is the endless meddling in your life by the U.S. government... providing handouts and bailouts to the undeserving... raking up trillions of dollars in debt that can never be paid back... passing slews of new restrictions, regulations, and taxes... and in the process wrecking the U.S. economy and impoverishing the productive part of the population.
And it's only going to get worse...
What are you planning on doing to protect yourself, your family, and your assets?
Our readers say it best!
Just wanted to close the loops and say thanks. I went with ***** Bank. All that was needed was passport and proof of address and to fund the account, of course. My driver's license worked for me. It was very easy! I was in and out in 30 minutes.” - Ben R.

“Pre-Internet, those of us who felt that there was too much government in our lives were largely isolated...Simon, however, is an "aggregator." As an aggregator, he enables us to meet and compare notes. THAT creates a powerful passivist force for change (WITHOUT trying to change anything!)”
“To Simon, thank you for creating this resource.”

“I agree with what you said about SMC--pairing knowledge and passion is a great path toward a winning niche.”

Offshore independence for the price of a cup of coffee.
If you hired a lawyer to help you establish your offshore asset protection and tax havens, you could easily pay $2,000 for just one day of his or her time.
But with Sovereign Man: Confidential, your cost for offshore investment, real estate, business, and privacy advice all year long is around a dollar a day – less than you pay for your morning cup of coffee.
Not only can Sovereign Man: Confidential potentially save you thousands of dollars in legal, tax planning, and banking fees. But you also stand to profit handsomely from the business, real estate, and investment opportunities we make available to you. The money saved by taking advantage of just one of our discounts – or the money earned from just one of our investments – could easily pay back the cost of your subscription many times over.
For instance, a few months back I was relaxing in my beautiful apartment in Santiago. The city is so civilized and modern you could easily mistake it for Madrid. And so I wrote a brief “Notes” recommending Chile as a place to plant one of your offshore flags.
The next month, I dedicated a good portion of Sovereign Man: Confidential to showing my readers exactly how to profit by doing business in Chile. We published a review of the 10 most interesting business opportunities in Chile, with contact information for local experts who can help you get started.
Plus, I detailed a shortcut to obtaining Chilean residency that you won’t hear about from anyone else. “Notes from the Field” readers didn’t get these detailed guidelines on making money and planting a flag in Chile. But Sovereign Man: Confidential subscribers did.

Is the U.S. Economy Doomed?
As “Notes from the Field” readers have heard me say many times, the U.S. economy is in absolute turmoil. Moving your assets offshore is the only logical option for escape. As the American dollar collapses and the U.S. financial system falters, stashing your cash in safe havens offshore can help preserve your wealth while avoiding the American economic meltdown.
According to the federal government’s own accounting office, the 2009 government deficit was $1.4 trillion and its balance sheet net position is negative $14 trillion. In 2010, things got much worse and, given the level of state bankruptcies in the U.S., will likely continue to do so.
The Federal Reserve seems intent on inflating away the U.S. dollar. They need inflation to close the budget gap, recapitalize banks, close the trade gap, and reduce the real value of the national debt.
China is already fielding its renminbi for a test drive as a new reserve currency, and as their economy grows to become the world’s largest, its currency will become the most dominant. This will cause a substantial decline in the U.S. dollar, euro, yen, and pound, resulting in massive governmental interventionist policies.
The United States is essentially bankrupt. To solve the problem, the government will raise money with higher taxes. This takes money out of the economy and has a negative effect on corporate earnings.
The balance of economic power has shifted from the United States to the south and east – to Asia, the Pacific, Latin America, and Africa. It would be foolish to ignore the warnings signs that forebode significant danger ahead for America.
Planting multiple flags – investments, businesses, and real estate – in countries with growth economies will absolutely hedge your sovereign risks and help you protect what you have. Sovereign Man: Confidential can help you build your wealth (again, real wealth, not worthless paper), an escape pad offshore, a network of like minds, second citizenships and multiple passports, tangible skills, businesses, investments, protected assets, and more.
Sovereign Man: Confidential brings you ideas, strategies, and resources that can help protect you family, your health, and your existing assets. Nothing is more important than ensuring you rise tomorrow with these intact.
