I wrote a book once called the Invisible Investor which was right on this topic. You can buy it from me very inexpensively.
Here are a few tips from Invisible Investor, written under the pen name P. Trevellian.
- Hold all your investments or properties in the name of other people or innocuous corporations not bearing your name or anything related to you.
- Names like “123 Investments” are good. Use straw men (or women) to hold title where corporations, trusts, Anstalts or foundations can’t be used.
- Avoid publicity like the plague. Don’t accept any awards. Don’t be high profile. Avoid politics either as a candidate or visible supporter.
- Don’t have (in your name) a snazzy car, yacht or airplane. Never get or have vanity license plates.
- If you give to charity, don’t ever have anything named after you. Be anonymous. Use “pen names” to conceal your identity.
- If you must get a divorce, settle quickly, avoid publicity and/or lawsuits. Better to never marry.
- Dress like a slob, wear sandals & plastic wrist watches. Tell one and all you are so poor you can’t even afford to buy them lunch. Flaunt your poverty.
- Keep your mouth shut and don’t even tell your children (or any age) what you are worth lest they blab about it to others.
