Here's Your Live & Invest In Panama
Home Conference Kit

Congratulations on your purchase of the Live & Invest In Panama Home Conference Kit!

Panama is a little country in a very fortunate geographic position working hard to make sure the economic prosperity it has enjoyed over the past decade continues into the next. With strong economic growth, impressive advances in infrastructure, a seriously pro-business agenda, and the Panama Canal Expansion Project fully under way, there's every reason to believe the good times will continue to roll down here at the Hub of the Americas.

The world's top retirement, investment, doing-business, and offshore haven? That'd be Panama.

Its pensionado program of special benefits for foreign retirees is the Gold Standard. As a foreign resident, you can pay zero local tax.

Indeed, Panama is one of the best places in the world right now to start a business and one of the easiest places to obtain foreign residency.

Plus, outside Panama City, this beautiful country hides the smartest beach, river, and mountain property buys anywhere on the planet today.

Panama is a land where the cost of living is low...the standard of health care is excellent...and where the climate can be idyllic (outside the capital...in the beautiful mountains of the interior).

Panama boasts Pacific and Caribbean shorelines with wildflower-covered mountains in between...real-world infrastructure...the U.S. dollar for currency (since 1904), so Americans face no exchange risk...

The advantages, appeals, and attractions of Panama are many. But is Panama a place you want to spend your time or your money?

Our goal with the Live & Invest in Panama Home Conference Kit is to provide you with all the information you need to make smart decisions, whether you're looking to live, invest, or retire in Panama. The high-quality information and contacts we'll introduce to you below should give you complete confidence as you explore all your options.

The audio clips below are part of the complete collection of recordings and presentations from our recent Live & Invest in Panama Conference. To fully enjoy the audio presentations, we recommend wearing headphones.

If you encounter any difficulties with any of the programs, we're standing by to help any way we can.

Welcome To Panama

One Of The World's Top Lifestyle, Investment, Offshore, And Retirement Havens

From my vantage point here in the heart of Panama City, I can tell you that this is a moment of opportunity in this country that, more than ever, qualifies as the world's top retirement, investment, business, tax, and offshore haven.

In Panama you can find everything from posh new seaside condos to peaceful and affordable beach homes fit for hammock retirement...from big city high-rise apartments to getaway mountain villages where life centers around the daily market...

Here the long list of incentives, benefits, and advantages for the would-be retiree, investor, and adventurer is unparalleled:

  • First World health care at Third World prices...

  • A full range of 14 resident visa programs...

  • The world's Gold Standard program of special benefits for retirees...the pensionado (or Retiree) visa is easy to qualify for and offers generous discounts on everything from medicine to movies to airfare...

  • One of the world's few remaining offshore tax havens (meaning you can live here tax-free)...

  • A U.S. dollar-based economy (since 1904), meaning zero currency risk for dollar-holders...

  • The best place in the world right now to start a business...

The better acquainted I become with this country, the more convinced I am that this is the place to be (as a retiree, an investor, and an entrepreneur) for the coming decade.

Below you'll find ten resources that will help give you introduction to both Panama and the idea of an overseas lifestyle in general. The first nine resources are PDF reports that make up our Panama Starter Kit, while the final two are audio presentations from our recent Live & Invest in Panama Conference.

Your New Life In Panama
Is Panama A Place For You?

Panama could be the closest thing right now to a one-size-fits-all haven. Panama City is no longer a bargain retirement destination, but convenience for North Americans abounds. Elsewhere in Panama, specifically Las Tablas (on the coast) or Santa Fe (in the highlands), can be much more affordable.

Panama continues to make great sense for the would-be retiree abroad for many other reasons, as well, including:

  • Diversity of lifestyles...from cosmopolitan Panama City (the most developed metropolitan area in the region) to both Pacific and Caribbean coastal choices for all budgets and mountain towns where the climate is much more pleasant than down at sea level...as well as choices for the retiree looking to go local and one of the world's most established expat retirement communities (in Boquete)...

  • U.S. dollar as the currency...meaning no exchange risk for the retiree whose retirement income is denominated in Greenbacks...

  • International-standard medical facilities, including the Johns Hopkins-affiliated Hospital Punta Pacifica...

  • Low-cost health insurance (a local policy can be less than US$100 a month if you qualify)...

  • Stable government committed to continuing to attract foreign retirees...

  • Diversity of standards of living...from super-budget in the interior to fully-appointed in the capital...

Likely you knew most of that already. Panama is well recognized as a top retirement haven.

And I can tell you from experience...it sure can be a great place to call home. And it's one place in the world right now that's enjoying continued growth and prosperity, global financial and political meltdowns notwithstanding.

Below you will find presentations from our chosen experts in nearly every aspect of establishing your life here. In addition to their presentations, each PowerPoint presentation includes contact information. We encourage you to get in touch with any of the experts should you have any questions, or to employ of their services.

Banking And Offshore Resources
Accurate And Legal Methods For Banking And Asset Protection Are More Important Than Ever

Especially when you're just starting out, but even after you've been at this a while, buying real estate in a foreign country or setting up an offshore corporation...these are intimidating propositions. You don't want to worry you'll end up running afoul of some tax law you didn't know existed.

We're here to help.

Panama is home to the largest international banking center in the region. It's also a tax haven for anyone who derives their income outside of the country.

Whether you decide on Panama or not, the below resources include information on establishing a banking account in Panama and beyond. We've also included important presentations regarding asset protection and their accompanying IRC-compliant laws.

In addition to their presentations, each PowerPoint presentation includes contact information. We encourage you to get in touch with any of the experts should you have any questions, or to employ of their services.
