With the surge of popularity of global mobility due to political and economic instability over recent years, and the rise in numbers of the global elite, it is evident that economic citizenship has a firm place in the market with huge revenue potential. Due to growing demand for dual citizenship programs worldwide, especially among Gulf region, CIS countries and Asia it’s the right time for picking up on this trend and to build a stronger presence in the marketplace. If you are in the business of offering Residence & Citizenship by Investment programs to HNWs individuals or serve HNWI clients with family office, legal, tax, or other wealth planning services and are looking to capture your share of the market, this article is for you.
Whether you are entering this highly competitive industry for the first time, and considering offering a particular program, or if you are an existing big player in the market, with offices worldwide and thinking of expanding your CBI offering to include new jurisdictions where your business currently has no presence or network, or simply if you are expanding your service offerings, we would welcome the opportunity of collaborating.
