The Privacy & Financial Shield LLC (“PF Shield”) prides itself in practicing cutting edge asset protection planning, business entity structuring, risk management, and financial privacy consulting.
Our methods are easily integrated into most estate plans.
There are many asset protection companies in today’s market. Many of their techniques are effective.
What makes PF Shield stand out from the crowd?
PF Shield is unique as we are the only company providing cutting-edge asset protection.
PF Shield employs techniques using inexpensive legal entities that are every bit as effective as their more expensive counterparts. The main legal entity PF Shield utilizes is not widely known or used in the asset protection industry simply because it is so new to the United States. That legal entity is the Limited Liability Company (LLC). LLC’s are more versatile and easier to maintain.
The first state to pass a Limited Liability Company Act did not do so until 1977, and many states did not follow suit until the 1990’s.
Prior to numerous state LLC Acts being passed, many businesses moved to Nevada in order to provide Nevada Corporations for asset protection purposes. Hence the heavy marketing all of us see referencing Nevada Corporations. The businesses are now committed to an inherently more cumbersome and expensive asset protection system.
Therefore PF Shield is able to provide a complete and effective asset protection plan often for a fraction of the price of other companies.
We do not use “cookie cutter” asset protection plans. Instead, we customize each asset protection and privacy solution for the client. LLC’s are not the solution by themselves, but they are a part of a larger custom-tailored plan.
PF Shield, depending on the client’s goals, will set up an asset protection system so as to maximize privacy. Some states do not require the owners or managers of an LLC to be listed on any public record.
About W. Ryan Fowler
A graduate of Brigham Young University, Mr. Fowler is the founder and managing member of The Privacy & Financial Shield LLC (pfshield.com), and has trained, mentored, or consulted for dozens of attorneys and other professionals nationwide in regards to wealth preservation matters.
Mr. Fowler originally began researching asset protection in an attempt to rectify the many differences of opinion, both within and without professional circles, as to which asset protection strategies worked and which didn’t. In order to separate fact from hype, Mr. Fowler would only support a strategy if he could prove its efficacy via a thorough analysis of statutory law, case law, and other relevant data. The results of this research has made Mr. Fowler a pioneer in some of the most advanced asset protection strategies available, such as equity stripping via obligation-based liens, UFTA Section 8(a) defense strategies, and the use of disregarded entity multi-member LLCs (DEMMLLCs).
Mr. Fowler currently resides in Salt Lake City, Utah.
