Panama City is a place full of opportunity for the offshore investor and the expat.

Panama Has Investment Opportunities In Spades For Expats

Get In With The Right Crowd

Last week, I sent you early notice of our ninth Live and Invest in Panama Conference.

Now, I know what you may be thinking… Ninth conference? Haven’t all the good opportunities in Panama been snapped up already?

The answer is a resounding no.

While many of my colleagues have been living here in Panama a decade or longer—witnessing the brick-by-brick transformation of the city (and beyond)—I’m a recent blow in.

I came here from Paris, France, just over a year ago. And, still, I’m amazed by the energy and pace of progress that continues here today. To me, it’s the antithesis of Paris—a city that’s appeal is largely built on its historic and romantic past.

Experiencing Life In Panama

I’ll admit I knew little about Panama before I arrived in the country—and not even about that guy who faked his death in a canoe. (If you haven’t heard that one, don’t worry—I’ll share more details later.)

I’d heard, of course, about the furious pace of construction in Panama City over the past decade and a half. So I expected to land on a building site surrounded by incredible noise.

My point is: no matter how much you read up about a place in advance, being on the ground is entirely different.

I’ve been getting a lot of queries on Panama these past weeks—both in connection with Continue reading
