Citizenship and Residency
A growing number of countries now offer immigrant investor programs, exchanging residence rights or citizenship for a sizeable investment in their economies. From "cash-for-citizenship" to incentives to invest in private sector businesses or property, the market for investor immigration has become increasingly diverse.
Residence planning and related tax planning for private clients involves finding solutions for individuals and families who move internationally, own property in different countries and who often have complex international situations and requirements. It is clear that obtaining citizenship or residence rights in one or more countries, combined with the ability to quickly leave one country and settle in another, is becoming increasingly important, both politically and economically, for high net worth individuals.
For many individuals the option of a second or even third citizenship is very attractive. The freedom which is afforded them is unparalleled. When one considers the reality that, due to the nature of their business, many international entrepreneurs will not spend more than six months a year in any one country, the benefits of citizenship by investment become more apparent.
