All About Asset Protection Planning

What do we mean when we say “Asset Protection Planning”? To answer that, we first need to understand to what “assets” we are actually referring.

When you are young and don’t have much to your name, you don’t spend a lot of time worrying about “asset protection.” But as you get older and start to accumulate some assets (and also realize how damn hard they are to accumulate), you have to start protecting those assets from being taken away from you!

How can my assets be taken away from me?

- by making really poor investment decisions where you lose money instead of making it - by getting sued and losing.

Other ways to lose your asset

1. In your personal life…

Largely this would include something “bad” happening at your residence, like your dog mauling the neighbor's kid. Or while driving your car, you hit and maim someone. Beyond that, you could perhaps get sued for slander or something weird like that.

2. In your business life… 

If you make your living as a freelancer, independent contractor, or own any kind of business, you are always more open to lawsuits.

Yikes! OK, so how do I protect my assets in regards to real estate investment risk?
