A few days ago, in response to questions about how to get started with offshore asset protection, I mentioned Mark Nestmann’s book The Lifeboat Strategy. Mark is a trained international lawyer and one of the world’s top offshore asset protection experts. I own his book and think it’s a fantastic resource, especially for those looking for initial answers.
The number of questions I received from readers in response to the book was overwhelming, so as a special service to Notes subscribers, I decided that we should pin Mark down for an interview.
I called my partner Matt, one of the savviest, most intellectually curious global entrepreneurs I know, and asked him to conduct the interview… as you will see, Matt didn’t pull any punches.
Personally I think he caught Mark a little off-guard, so you’ll hear a lot of candor.
Mark and Matt cover a lot of ground in the call, including:
- Why demand for offshore asset protection is exploding
- The most important thing you should be doing right now to protect your assets
- Why politicians just don’t get it, and the future of currency controls
- Strategies that anyone can use to legally safeguard their assets
Some of my favorite quotes:
“Anyone who wants to make a serious committment to investing outside the dollar needs a foreign bank account…”
“If you do it in the right way, you don’t necessarily have to report any of it…”
“It’s very hard for the Treasury to tell you to repatriate a house…”
“This is something that anyone can do– it’s private, it non-reportable…”
You can listen to the unedited, unscripted call below. It’s about 35 minutes, and I think Mark’s valuable insight is well worth your time. He’s not a Chicken-little fear-monger, rather a common sense professional with first-class knowledge.

Let me know if you like this sort of thing and I can dip into the Rolodex a bit more to interview other experts in privacy, asset protection, investing, and lifestyle design. Also, if you have any specific questions for me or Mark that weren’t answered in the interview, please leave a comment and I’ll do my best to get an answer.
