Every country in the world wants to increase its flow of foreign direct investment to support economic development goals, and with the explosion in global wealth we have witnessed since the great recession of 2008, more and more of those high net worth individuals and families reviewing their global lifestyle, security and wealth protection options each year.
The competition between countries to attract immigrant investment and knowledge is bound to grow further and as you might expect, we are seeing more and more on the supply side of the Residency and Citizenship by Investment Industry. The market has grown so much the last ten years, that investing in a residence permit or a passport is quickly becoming ordinary and unremarkable.
What are the options for alternative residency by investment?
Greece (set to become the world’s #1 program in 2019 by applicant numbers)
Many of these can lead to citizenship in due course after time spent in the country and other qualifying criteria.
What are the options for alternative citizenship by investment?
Caribbean – Antigua & Barbuda (best value), Dominica, St. Kitts & Nevis, Grenada and St. Lucia
Europe – Malta, Cyprus, Montenegro, Bulgaria
Prices for these international programs vary from hundreds of thousands to many millions of dollars. As specialists in the Caribbean for the last ten years, we believe more than ever that the region offers priceless value for financial and personal security, and also the immediate and tangible rewards that have brought the world’s elite to these islands for generations.
Antigua & Barbuda in particular, in our many years of experience in the islands, presents a very special opportunity particularly well suited to those not seeking an immediate move of their family. Citizenship or residency in Antigua & Barbuda can be an essential component in an international wealth preservation strategy, and the lifestyle benefits are priceless.
