Master Class in US Inbound/Outbound
Financial Planning Starts February 3rd

Learn the cross-border considerations needed to work with clients from international backgrounds living in the US or Americans abroad.


Message from our Founder:

The Master Class series in US Inbound/Outbound International Financial Planning is an advanced course for financial planners, wealth managers, private bankers, CPA/accountants, and other advanced financial professionals working with international and cross-border clients in the US and Americans abroad. It is a ten lesson program taught by a faculty of financial planners, accountants, tax, immigration and estate attorneys. 

Given the exponential complexity that exists when dealing with matters affecting the U.S. and residents of a specific foreign country, this is not a cross-border class where instruction is provided on how the U.S. works with specific foreign countries.

"After completing the GFPI Master Class, I know what questions to ask and specific areas to delve into that might be problematic. I also now have a ready list of trusted contacts I can tap into to make referrals for more complicated cases."
