Protection of wealth and assets through structuring and international asset transfers
Political and economic situations in some world regions compel wealthy individuals and companies to protect their assets. Moving or totally relocating far from home is not always desirable. But many of our clients want to minimise risk and increase security by diversifying asset locations. In some especially troubling situations, this is not about gaining security but about preventing total loss of assets.
De Micco & Friends helps you with this problem.
Our clients open up world market opportunities for their businesses with their presence in Spain! Some clients furthermore use this platform to legally relocate their assets or parts thereof to a safe and stable business location. De Micco & Friends will support your efforts with tailor-made solutions.

We safeguard the funds and assets of individuals, families and companies. De Micco & Friends creates the underlying concept and structure for the implementation of any kind of asset relocation worldwide.

I.) PROTECTION OF WEALTH AND ASSETS FROM CRISIS AREAS
Why international asset transfers fail
In most cases, asset transfers fail due to faulty or missing preparation. When funds or deposits are transferred, for example, these transfers can be denied in the receiving country. As a result, both the sender and receiver of payments involving banks, central banks or other authorities are placed on “blacklists”. This frequently leads to investigations by anti-money laundering institutions.
This is the reason why all payment transactions between differently regulated economic areas must always be properly prepared! We offer secured individual solutions that take legal and tax implications into account even for lower-volume transfers.
DE MICCO & FRIENDS DESIGNS AND STRUCTURES ALL KINDS OF ASSET TRANSFERS AND IMPLEMENTS THESE WORLDWIDE.
De Micco and Friends not only offers you individualised and
creative design for your asset transfer but also actively implements the agreed strategies.
In most cases, we represent our clients by proxy, eliminating the need for their presence in the implementation of the various activities and procedures.
In contrast to traditional consultants or banks that concern themselves with optimising added value and tax situations, De Micco & Friends goes a step further to serve our clients in special and personal situations.
Of course, tax aspects always play a role! But our clients’ priorities involve security and asset mobility - and in some cases also protection for the family, its health and its future.
