What does offshore mean?

20


20 simbi per session - Virtual OK

If the Panama Papers have made you curious I'd love to share some details and basic background on why people go offshore in the first place. Yup, some people do it to cheat on their taxes and launder money but the vast majority do it to protect their assets, maintain privacy (for non-nefarious purposes) and to conduct international business in a tax-neutral jurisdiction.

Training & Qualifications


I've been working in the offshore hedge fund industry and living in a so-called "tax haven" since 2001. My own work has been primarily focused on investment vehicles but I've worked with corporate and personal structures as well.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

About Gordon Casey

I'm based in Vancouver with my family - a 7 year old daughter and a wee baby boy. We building a platform coop that will create a way to send urgent, hyper-local requests for help - whether you need so...meone to carry your groceries, have a conversation or give you CPR, we believe that the help you need is already here and that technology can help us make real-world connections. I worked as a lawyer and entrepreneur until the end of 2015, primarily in financial services (mostly setting up offshore hedge funds and other structures). The world is an abundant place: it's filled with people trying to do the right thing. Most of us have the best intentions - even those whose actions I can barely understand - and the more methods there are for us to demonstrate our underlying faith in humanity, the more likely I think we are to end up "okay" in the long run. I'm a professional amateur - always trying to learn some new thing that strikes me as essential. I've managed to get basic competence at a bunch of things and there are so many that I still want to try: drums, flying, sky-diving, Mandarin, Arabic, coding, free-running...show more
