Investment Migration — encompassing both residence- and citizenship-by-investment — provides a route to greater safety and security as well as greater travel freedom. Individuals and families who have multiple passports or residence permits benefit from each country’s best practices and are less vulnerable to the shortcomings associated with a single nationality. The more jurisdictions a family can access, the lower their exposure will be to both sovereign and global risk.
As the pioneer of the investment migration industry, Henley & Partners envisioned and created the concept of residence and citizenship planning in the 1990s. The objective of a residence- or citizenship-by-investment program is for a country to attract much-needed economic contribution and investment, in return for which it grants residence or citizenship status to carefully vetted applicants. The firm was the first to globally specialize in this area, at a time when most international lawyers and wealth-planning professionals did not consider it to be of much relevance.
