He states that IRAs are the most common to take offshore and are least likely to raise red flags with the IRS. Larry defines offshore plans as actually having the assets, the investments and the custody of the assets outside of the United States. He also defines “Custodian,” “custody,” “administrator,” and many other technical terms associated with IRAs and pension plans.
Larry attempts to untangle the complicated web that is often the case with IRAs and pension plans, and talks about options people have for moving their retirement funds offshore, including some of the most popular places that assets are moved to throughout the world. Some of the options are quite interesting, including reforestation projects. Of course, real estate is a leading offshore investment.

Larry is the author of The Ultimate Retirement Protection Plan, published by The Sovereign Society. Larry’s has been called the “Pit Bull” of offshore planning by some of his colleagues. He is a Fox News Contributor and has written numerous articles, which have been published on the topic of why “Retirement Plans are Doomed!” Over the last several years Larry has focused on why he believes the government specifically has your retirement plan in its crosshairs.
He was one of the first to write about the secret government plan that, if approved, would force your retirement plan to buy treasuries. He has exposed their plans to make sweeping changes to the retirement plan system that possibly include confiscation or nationalization, reduction or elimination of the tax benefits, forced lifetime annuitization at retirement age funded by treasuries and “redistribution of the wealth”.
