Why foreign nationals married to Americans can be a way to advertise - Foreign National Market

This segment of our society is the easiest entry point into the foreign market and a huge opportunity to advertise an adviser's practice online.

You can gift the annual exclusion, currently at $14,000. But it's relatively small (some planners call it the amount that doesn't count.) A relatively unknown financial planning concept is called the "super annual exclusion" is $145,000 from non resident aliens to their American spouses. Many planners in this arena use the $145,000 to leverage the amount to the spouse to purchase life insurance because there is no unlimited martial deduction. This is a planning tactic worth exploring.
