How to structure your portfolio to include passports?

Here is an example of structured portfolio that is balanced for risk, that includes gold (10%), real estate (20%), equities (10%) and fixed income assets (10%) .

Passport in a Portfolio

You can include your passport under the real estate. This is because you invest in a real estate you get a passport free, under citizenship by investment programs. Note there is additional government fee applies if you want passport.

We do not recommend donation option for careful investors. This because under the donation option offered by citizenship by investment programs, you basically donate $100,000 to the state and your money is GONE when you take the passport. Some CBI programs do offer you a provision for investing or financing Government bonds.

Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies are high risk investments. You should not include more than 1% of these asset classes in your portfolio to minimize the risk.
