Spain’s Opportunities

October 17, 2016 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP There is a LOT of bad stuff going on right now. As if the no-talent circus known as the US Presidential election weren’t bad enough, the US recently bombed Yemen not long after Saudi Arabia did so. Just found a new study that shows over 55,000 Americans were brutalized by police in just one year. “Stop complaining and do something!” Yeah, I’m not stopping the American military industrial complex. We aren’t all characters out of some Stan Lee comic book. Nor am I changing the tra … [Read More...]

Obamacare Creating Criminals Out of Thin Air

October 10, 2016 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP If there is ONE thing the government is good at, it’s exacerbating a problem and creating criminals out of thin air. One of the most effective ways of doing that is by an elaborate 75,000+ page system of codes known as taxes. It’s not just criminalizing you, there’s more to it. The stigma of being “non-compliant” with tax laws and codes can come with some heavy consequences. In some cases, your freedom to travel is on the line. Nowhere is this clearer than in observing the roll- … [Read More...]

Passports: Permission to Travel

October 3, 2016 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP It’s funny to think that had history taken just a slightly different turn, Global Wealth Protection wouldn’t exist in the form it does today. I imagine that could be said of everything and everyone to some extent. The purpose of Global Wealth Protection is really finding ways to live freer under the current circumstances which is why we highly encourage diversity in holdings, becoming location independent, and maximizing privacy. One such strategy in accomplishing those afore men … [Read More...]

Luxury Property Crackdown

September 26, 2016 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP So either money launderers are the new boogey man, the US government is desperate to control and monitor wealth, or both. Headline after headline talks about these money launderers as if they posed this existential threat to anyone. I think they are hoping that people won’t actually look into what a money launderer actually is, because once you know, you’re left wondering what the big deal is. I’m not suggesting everyone go out and launder money. I’m just saying it’s really no … [Read More...]

One Very Simple (But Often Overlooked) Asset Protection Strategy

September 22, 2016 By: Bobby Casey, GWP Managing Director One of the biggest issues I find with asset protection planning is that frequently people get overly hyped up about putting some exotic structure in place that they really don't need. I see it all the time. People read something on the internet saying they need this special type of trust structure that will legally allow them to both protect their assets from prying eyes while also hiding from the tax department. First of all, it is likely bogus. Secondly, in many cases the … [Read More...]

The Ripple Effect of the Panama Papers

September 19, 2016 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP When the whole Panama Papers “scandal” surfaced, I knew the purpose was to vilify and “crack down” on offshore banking. There is a cynical part of me that wonders if this wasn’t just more of a political strategy than an authentic leak. Nothing like rallying your voter base with pitchforks and torches to burn the rich! The Panama Papers in many ways is like the 9/11 of offshore banking. Once we have people worked up and angry, the government all but has a free pass with the full f … [Read More...]

Abolish Cash or Abolish Fractional Reserve Banking?

September 12, 2016 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP Opposition to fractional reserve banking can help to make money more sound, but a more concentrated central bank might still hinder things with the abolition of physical cash. Going cashless isn’t just some cocktail conversation heard in some random circles anymore. This is a very real idea that is starting to take root in the minds of very influential and powerful people. In fact, several countries are already putting a level cash restriction or limitation into place. It’s not th … [Read More...]

Post Brexit: Finding the New Normal

September 5, 2016 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP Despite the Brexit referendum passing, nothing has actually changed yet. It’s like declaring and agreeing upon getting a divorce: there’s still the business of moving out, splitting of the assets, and various other agreements moving forward. In terms of the UK and EU divorce, no one’s packed a single box yet. This is government we’re talking about here. While any normal human being wanting to get out of a bad marriage would have their stuff packed and out in a matter of minutes, g … [Read More...]

Divestment Part 2 – Where To Go?

September 1, 2016 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP Last time I talked about the DISINCENTIVES businesses have to stay in certain locations like the San Francisco Bay Area, California, or even the United States in general. This leads to divestment. But when there is divestment someone else, in turn, is the beneficiary of investment. Of course divestment can also include just shutting down and going out of business, which is unfortunate. There are still many others that simply relocate part or all of their businesses elsewhere. But … [Read More...]

August 29, 2016 Erica Blair interviews Bobby Casey to get at how he made the leap from domestic entrepreneur to digital nomad as part of a larger project she is compiling for a book down the line. Being a digital nomad isn't just a job.  It's a lifestyle choice for many people.  Everyone has a different story, but there is certainly some common ground too.  What is your story? Have a listen to this interview and see if you can relate!  Is the digital nomad life for you? … [Read More...]

Divestment Part 1 – Not Business Friendly

August 29, 2016 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP Regulations and taxes are economic mercenaries. They are employed for the sole purpose of killing economies, stymieing growth, and quelling competition. What is particularly sad, is all the innovation that might never surface because of the choke hold these policies have on our markets. The San Francisco Bay Area is quite possibly the best example of private sector success and public sector failure. The private sector success is despite the public sector failures, I might add. They … [Read More...]

China Experiencing Capital Flight

August 22, 2016 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP We’ve taken a keen and growing interest in China over the past few years, and with good reason! They are one of the most dynamic economies in the world. That isn’t to say they’ve not seen hardship or made mistakes. Indeed they have. What makes them dynamic is their response to what’s happening in the world. I mentioned before how the Chinese were buying up US properties, especially in premium areas like the San Francisco bay area. I can’t be entirely sure if this is attributable to … [Read More...]
