Spend the week exploring Panama residency, taxation, incorporation and investment opportunities with local and global industry experts. There are significant opportunities to invest and to make money, but finding these requires finesse and a good understanding of Panama.

Immerse yourself in Obris — Get to know like-minded investors from around the world. Hear world-class speakers on a variety of topics.

Why Panama?

  • Amazing sunsets
  • A near-perfect tropical maritime climate
  • Caribbean beaches & deep-sea fishing
  • Rivers, lakes & waterfalls
  • Tropical rain forests & dormant volcanoes

We chose Panama for several reasons, one of the most important being that a number of our members call Panama home, and they are all exuberant about the reasons to domicile there.

The financial and banking infrastructures parallel Singapore and are growing even more advanced every day.

Panama is a great place to live.

  • One of the best countries for residency or a second passport
  • Optimal tax & corporate jurisdictions
  • Undervalued investment opportunities
  • No taxation on foreign income

As a resident, only your Panama income will be taxed. All foreign sourced income is exempt from taxation.

Deals, Deals, Deals…

Investment deals are a key offering of Obris. We source, vet and craft unique deals from around the world.

You will be introduced to several investment opportunities that will be offered for the first time at the Panama event. You will also hear from our existing investments with whom we are raising a new round of financing.

Most important, you will spend time with the principals of these investments, learn why we have brought the deals to our investors, and what are our expectations for the companies.

“If you’re interested in finance—if you’re interested in the international globalized world—then by far and away you need to at least check out what Obris has to offer. If you don’t you’re doing yourself a disservice.”

Jason, At the Obris Investor summit Budapest 2018

Residency, taxation, and how best to structure companies in Panama

Global macro engagement, and geopolitical risk assessment

How to improve your prowess as a Global investor

Why is an obris summit special?

Eight years after the first Obris Investor Summit in Mongolia, our core purpose is the same.

We choose unique locations to gather our members and guests. We stay in great hotels and resorts, eat amazing food and explore exotic and exceptional surroundings and scenery. We introduce a wide range of speaking and discussion content from industry and regional experts. We explore local, regional and global topics that help each of us further develop our prowess as global investors. We introduce carefully vetted deals and spend time with the principals of prospective and existing companies in which we invest.  We get to know amazing people.

Truly, the best way to get to know Obris is to join us at our Investor Summit.

What exactly is Obris?

Obris is a membership-based, private global network of individual investors and family offices dedicated to growing their wealth exponentially by investing in a diversified portfolio of asymmetric global opportunities, including: private equity; real estate; forex; cryptocurrency; precious metals and more.

Are you going to sell me on joining Obris?

No. Again, all are welcome to attend these Meet-Up events. No sales pitch here, that’s not why we throw these things. We simply want to grow our network and that means meeting interesting and engaged people like you. By the end of the meet up though, we hope that we have shown the benefits of being a member and you apply to join.


No. All are welcome to attend Obris Meet-Up events. Frankly, if you are the type of person who would be interested in attending then you are probably the type of person we’d enjoy meeting.


You’ll get the full-on experience of what it’s like to be a member of Obris and that’s something that only a select few ever experience.

By a full experience we mean we are going to give you access to some of the exact same deal flow that Obris and its members are investing into. 

We will give you access to our personal network.

We can’t tell you right now if an Obris membership is right for you, and we don’t expect you to join just because you attend this Investor Summit. That’s not what this is about.

But we CAN tell you that there is absolutely no downside to spending a few days in an exotic location, with some of the best and brightest innovators, investors and entrepreneurs around!
