There are many benefits to investing offshore with an IRA. It allows you to diversify your portfolio and can protect you from the risk of putting all your (nest) eggs in one basket (i.e., the U.S. economy) because the investment isn’t linked to the U.S. dollar or markets. In addition, many foreign real estate investments have lower investment minimums and management costs which can help you maximize your IRA funds.

But before you move forward with this strategy, there are things to consider such as performing the proper due diligence and educating yourself not only on the tax laws in the United States, but the tax implications, and transaction process in the country where you are investing. 

That’s why we’re bringing in the experts from Lifeafar to discuss offshore investing in Puerto Rico and Colombia. Join The Entrust Group’s Business Development Manager, Bill Neville and Lifeafar’s Director of Sales, Adrian Beales, and Senior Associate, Ankita Jain, on September 23rd at 11 a.m. PT/2 p.m. ET as they discuss:

  • Why Puerto Rico and Colombia present investment opportunities
  • The tax and opportunity zone incentives
  • Adrian’s takeaways from investing overseas

We’ll also be hosting a post-presentation Q&A session to answer all your questions.
