The Marc M Harris Analysis
The Harris Organisation
Marc M. Harris graduated from North Carolina Wesleyan College with a 4.0 average at the age of 18. Shortly thereafter, while still only 18, he passed his Certified Public Accountant (CPA) examination and is believed to be the youngest person in the United States to accomplish this. He went on to Columbia University for his MBA with a concentration in Investment Finance.
About the Founder
After completing his formal education, Mr. Harris set out to apply himself in the business world. He found it difficult to secure a professional position because of his age and when he finally did, he found himself unable to realize his full potential. On December 2, 1985, with little more than pocket change, young Mr. Harris started his own company.
After substantial changes in the American tax law in 1986, Mr. Harris refocussed the firm's strategy in favor of international tax planning and legitimate methods for Americans to take advantage of offshore tax havens. In order to better service his growing international clientele, he relocated the center of operations to Panama. Today, with over 150 employees, The Firm of Marc M. Harris, Inc. has become the largest independent provider of quality international financial services in Latin America and the Caribbean.
Mr. Harris has not only built his company, but has personally received many awards which include the key to the city of Miami Beach and Most Distinguished Alumni at North Carolina Wesleyan College. He has established a personal foundation that contributes to Panamanian society by funding nutritional projects and helping needy families in the community. He is a much sought-after speaker on international financial planning and gives seminars throughout the world. Mr. Harris has assisted in drafting new financial services legislation for several Latin American countries and is a contributor to various financial journals and newsletters on a regular basis.
Panama is a country that has been discovered by the financial giants of the world. Most people are astounded when they find out that there are more than 140 international banks in the city of Panama. How many international banks do you have in your city? Panama has the most favorable commercial secrecy laws in the world. These ensure a client's privacy when dealing with The Firm of Marc M. Harris, Inc. There have been legal changes in the Caribbean and Europe which have caused a loss of banking privacy. Because of this, Panama is rapidly becoming the number one offshore financial center of the world. Panama is known as the "Bridge of the Americas" and "Crossroads of the World." It has become the prime location for financial migration between the two continents and the two oceans.
Panama has several other interesting attributes which make it the most attractive financial center for Americans.
- Panama's currency is the U.S. dollar, which is circulated freely and without exchange controls.
- Panama's time zone is Eastern Standard, ensuring our clients do not have to keep inconvenient hours to transact business.
- Panama has the second largest Free Trade Zone in the world, attracting international businessmen on a regular basis.
- With over 140 international banks, Panama serves as the financial center for all of Latin America and the Caribbean.
- In 1925, Panama was the first country in Latin America to enact a trust law.
- Panama has a modern airport, excellent telecommunications, and a state of the art financial infrastructure, ensuring individuals and corporations unparalleled financial service.
