Asset Privacy & Anonymity 2020
Let's use the Oxford Dictionary to better understand our meaning of the ‘Asset Privacy' term.
Asset – “property owned by a person or company, regarded as having value and available to meet debts, commitments, or legacies.”
Privacy – “a state in which one is not observed, disturbed by other people,” or in legal terms, “free from public attention.”
Anonymity – “the state of remaining unknown to most other people.”
‘Asset Privacy’ means keeping the owners and the property itself anonymous & invisible from outsiders.
Business Trusts & Realty Land Trusts
As we begin this new decade the safety and privacy of your real property, business, or financial accounts are all at risk. Although the internet is a tremendous tool it can also provide anyone searching online with details of your high value assets. This visibility can lead to a wide variety of nasty problems such as unwanted publicity, records fraud and spurious lawsuits.
The purpose of this site is to raise your “situational awareness” about online asset exposure. Your corporation and LLC details are online with the Secretary of State. Your real estate holdings and mortgages are online with the County Recorder. Only an unlisted private trust can keep your assets off the public radar screen. Yet there's little information on this subject. More importantly, “how” to use a trust to get privacy or anonymity is scarce. Context is always a factor. If you are reading this, you're one of the few insiders who understand the need.
Our politicians in Washington DC now want photo identification of all your corporate stockholders and LLC members. Failure to comply with the pending legislation includes $10,000 fines and criminal penalties. Read what they have planned for you…

Asset Protection vs Asset Privacy
Asset Protection is poised for battle. Your Army of Generals, soldiers, armament, and horses. The phalanx is visible, front and center. You and your lawyers are fully engaged 24/7 mentally, financially and emotionally. It's about what does happen.
Asset Privacy is pure stealth. Nobody sees anything. Nobody knows what you have. Nobody knows where you are. It's about what doesn't happen.
Which one helps you sleep at night?
Anonymity Is Your Best Protection
An essential element of trust design is the “anonymity” that they can create for assets — in other words, privacy. A corporation or LLC is highly visible online and can only derive their privileges from state government permission.
And recognize that real estate owned by your Corporation or LLC is easily searched and found at the County Recorder. Calculating your equity is easy.
However, a trust derives their power from the actions of the individuals who form them. Trusts are private contracts and the constitutional right to create them belongs to all of us. As you will discover or might already know, asset privacy or anonymity is your least expensive and greatest form of protection. Be unlisted online. Stealth is your strategic advantage.
