Live And Invest In Panama

Welcome To The World's Top Retirement Havens

Aug. 10, 2011, Panama City, Panama: At this week’s Live & Invest in Panama Conference, we’ll discuss all the reasons why Panama remains the world’s top retirement and doing-business haven.

Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,

I'll be mercifully brief this morning, as I've got to run out the door shortly to make my way across town to the Sheraton Hotel, where, later today, we're kicking off this week's Live & Invest in Panama Conference.


Where To Retire Overseas

Go Local?

Aug. 9, 2011, Panama City, Panama: One of the most important choices you must make when retiring overseas is whether to settle in an established expat community or to go local, immersing yourself in the new culture.

Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,

As I prepare for my opening remarks at this week's Live & Invest in Panama Conference commencing tomorrow here in Panama City, I'm remembering the fundamental questions the would-be expat or retiree must consider, regardless where in the world he's planning to relocate.


Retire To Cebu, Philippines

One Woman's Adventures On Cebu

Aug. 8, 2011, Cebu, Philippines: Cebu, Philippines, is an excellent choice for a retiree on a modest budget.

Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,

"Most of the expats who live on Cebu, in the Philippines, are men, and many of them are retired military receiving military pensions and Social Security," writes Philippines Correspondent Victoria Clair.

"I am not in this category. I am a retired American woman who simply finds it advantageous to live in this part of the world.

"Do you think he'd take US$10,000?"

"Yes, I'm pretty sure he'd jump at that."


Global Property Investing

Distortion Investing

Aug. 5, 2011, Panama City, Panama: In the current climate, investing in property markets where a distortion means you can expect a net annual yield of 10% or better is a smart use of available capital.

Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,

This morning everyone was talking about yesterday's drop in the stock market. When I checked earlier today, the markets are down further.

The only reason I know this, though, is because I forced myself to focus on the hubbub. Generally speaking, I don't look at my stock portfolio but maybe once a month. I don't want to worry about "volatile" markets and day-by-day ups and down in stock prices, so I invest only in stocks I can ignore.

Readers Say

"I have to say that you seem to dig deeper into the feel of a particular place and to do comparative analysis between alternative places. Your approach is more sophisticated and thoughtful and therefore more useful than that of other information sources covering these same subjects."

— John W., United States
"I particularly appreciated your information today about the joys (?) of international rental property. What I admire is your honest, tell-it-like-it-is approach. A lot of people have been hurt by nothing but glowing reports about offshore living from various sources. Your honest, direct approach is a real service."

— Arlean K., United States
