    Client Comments 

    "I've been with you since 2013 and still feel I made the right decision to take my IRA offshore through an LLC. It was a very scary prospect but you made it easy and affordable." - Dan M.

    "Larry Grossman of Sovereign International Pension Services is a Wharton School of Business graduate and often referred to as the Pit Bull by his peers, in regards to his persistent pursuit of opening up offshore opportunities for clients. I found the pit bull to be a perfect gentleman. Larry and his team always found the time to listen to my concerns and kindly replied in a courteous, prompt and professional manner." - B. H.

    "I have known Larry for over 20 years. He has spoken at dozens of my seminars for more than a decade and I have referred readers to him and written about him hundreds of times. I continue to refer readers to him and years ago also referred him to an associate publisher Sovereign Society where I understand he has a large number of satisfied clients". - G. Scott
