Ted Baumann


South Africa

Ted is a long-time expat. Though born in Washington, D.C. and raised on Maryland’s eastern shore, Ted moved overseas to South Africa as a young man, where he graduated from the University of Cape Town with postgraduate degrees in economics and history. He had a long international career, most recently as a market analyst and investment advisor. But for decades before that, he worked as a consultant, researching and writing extensively on finance, housing and urban planning issues for clients as diverse as the United Nations, the World Bank, the South African government and European grant-making agencies. Ted has one primary mission: to help people better understand (and sort through) the best ways and places to diversify their lives internationally—so they can better secure their assets, grow their wealth, and protect their freedoms. Opportunity abroad isn’t limited only to the lifestyle perks you’ll find. You can reduce your taxes, invest outside the dollar, gain greater freedom and flexibility in how and where you spend time, and that’s just for starters. With this in mind, Ted has created IL’s The Global Citizen to help you do just that.
