This week, CS Global Partners was present at the Emigration Expo, which took place at The Capital on The Park in Sandton, Johannesburg. Our firm showcased how South Africans can secure their businesses, wealth, and family futures in uncertain times through citizenship by investment opportunities. The two-day event was attended by individuals – families, entrepreneurs, students, and job seekers – looking for alternative investment options and a Plan B.
Citizenship by investment (CBI) programmes offer investors the opportunity to legally acquire a new nationality in return for an investment in the host country’s economy. These programmes confer citizenship status without causing major disruptions to an investor’s life, provided they pass all the stringent due diligence checks first and make a qualifying investment.
CBI offers greater security for individuals. The wide variety of benefits allow applicants and their families to take control of their futures by gaining further opportunities outside of their home countries. These opportunities include ease of global mobility, political and economic stability, asset and wealth diversification, and improved lifestyle, better healthcare and access to quality education.
The Caribbean is known as the cradle of citizenship by investment programmes, with fourteen countries in the region offering CBI solutions – the highest concentration in the world.
In 1984, the government of St Kitts and Nevis created the world’s first CBI programme which is now regarded as the Platinum Standard and offers reputable investors from all over the world the chance to get the full benefits of citizenship of the twin-island Federation.
The programme was ranked first by The Financial Times’ PWM magazine among 14 jurisdictions worldwide and offers investors a safe and secure route to second citizenship once they contribute to the Sustainable Growth Fund.
Established in 1993, Dominica’s Citizenship by Investment Programmeis one of the world’s most efficient and transparent options. It offers applicants two investment opportunities: buying into Government approved real estate or a one-time contribution to the Economic Diversification Fund.
The programme has been ranked as the world’s best programme for second citizenship for the last six years in the CBI Index, an annual independent study published by the Financial Times’ PWM magazine.
