Portable retirement planning 

International Private Retirement Plan, expats moving from place to place with this transient lifestyle goes very much against their retirement planning. It often prevents them forming coherent financial plans over the medium-long term. Offshore portable retirement plans offer a great solution to the transient contractor who, just like their local counterpart, wishes to invest and make financial plans for his or her future.
