There are several reasons why one should consider investing abroad. Here are a few:

  • Diversification – International investing helps investors to spread their investment risk among foreign companies and markets. As a result, you’re money is not tied to one country’s economy.

  • Growth – Producing agricultural property is extremely expensive in the US. You can take advantage of the potential for growth and equity appreciation in these emerging markets.

  • Asset Protection – Transferring a portion of your assets to an entity that holds it outside of your home country can further help to shield your assets from predators.

  • Confidentiality – Many offshore jurisdictions offer the complimentary benefit of secrecy legislation. These countries have enacted laws establishing strict corporate and banking confidentiality. If this confidentiality is breached, there are serious consequences for the offending party.

Panama was chosen to become the coffee farming land not only because of its strategic geography, being home of the Panama Canal, but also because of it’s unique combination of altitude, fertile volcanic soil. It’s tropical climate with the right balance of sun, cloud cover, shade and rainfall allow the coffee to grow and ripen slowly. This gives the beans time to develop to their full potential.

Cacao is native to the tropical regions of Central and South America and is found to grow only in the area known as the  “cacao belt”. Belize happens to be geographically positioned in this zone, therefore having the perfect weather conditions needed for its growth. Another great reason why Belize is a perfect place to own land is it’s low price point as a developing economy.
