Show Notes

In today’s episode, we had the pleasure of speaking with Andrew Hallam, a financial expert and author of many books of which “The Millionnaire expat”is at the center of our conversation.

Yet, you don’t have to be an expat, nor a millionaire to benefit from listening to this podcast, from which you’ll learn, as a starter, that some of the most reputable insurance companies in the world sell retirement plans that will leave you broke. Andrew will tell you who they are, and what you can do to avoid those traps.

You’ll also learn that in order to grow your capital over time, you won’t need a complex and time-consuming investment plan.

He spends on average 1 hour per year to balance his portfolio of low-cost index fund s and as a result he beat most actively managed funds, that come with astronomic fees.

We also touched on the current status of the global markets, and Andrew’s perspective is refreshing and somehow reassuring. 

There is a lot to learn and enjoy here…..Have a listen


Build your strongest-ever portfolio from anywhere in the world

Now in its third edition, Millionaire Expat is the world’s most trusted, bestselling guide for expat investors.  It shows readers how to protect themselves from financial sharks and build effective portfolios that maximize profits and tax efficiency. This updated guide includes model portfolios of ETFs or index funds.  It recommends subtle differences for investors based on nationality, while explaining why all-in-one portfolio funds are even simpler and more profitable than individual ETFs.  Millionaire Expat also provides investment models for socially responsible funds.

Best of all, this book is specific.  Author Andrew Hallam doesn’t just offer theory.  He shows you exactly what to buy and where to buy it from.  He explains how much you should sell each year, upon retirement, and discusses repatriation: showing how different countries deal with the taxation of portfolios that were built abroad.

 And if you’re looking for a hands-free approach, Millionaire Expat offers something for you as well:  lists of roboadvisors and full-service financial firms that offer guidance and build portfolios of ETFs and index funds.

But what if you started investing late and can’t afford to retire? In that case, Andrew Hallam has you covered.  He profiles several low-cost countries that are popular with expats.  He explains what countries are great for Global Nomads and for retirees looking for tax breaks, safety, solid health care systems and a low-cost, enjoyable standard of living.

Millionaire Expat (3rd edition) is an entertaining guide, showing readers how to maximize their money and their life satisfaction based on simple, smart investing and their choice of retirement destination.
