The St Kitts and Nevis Citizenship by Investment Programme was awarded the title of ‘World’s Most Innovative Investment Immigration Programme’ at the Russian Global Citizen Awards Ceremony, a prestigious initiative of the Moscow Family Office Forum, now in its seventh year.
Delivered on 15 November 2017 at the Ritz Carlton Moscow, the coveted award recognised St Kitts and Nevis’ drive to lead the citizenship by investment market and pioneering work. Among these is the implementation of the first-ever online Citizenship Application Management System (CAMS) for citizenship by investment, and the launch of a premium Accelerated Application Process (AAP). This year, St Kitts and Nevis spearheaded the industry’s response to unpredictable natural disasters, establishing a Hurricane Relief Fund fully dedicated to reconstruction and rehabilitation in the face of the 2017 hurricane season.
CS Global Partners has been collaborating with the Government of St Kitts and Nevis to promote its Citizenship by Investment Programme across the globe, and our Russia team has played a key role in ensuring that St Kitts and Nevis’ journey to excellence has become known across Russia’s industry professionals and high net worth individuals. Indeed, it was a panel of such individuals that nominated, evaluated, and finally selected St Kitts and Nevis – the ‘platinum standard’ of citizenship by investment.
“It is a point of pride to be working with St Kitts and Nevis, particularly as it continues to make a positive contribution to the market by its ability to combine innovation with quality. Since 1984, St Kitts and Nevis has set the standard for citizenship by investment, and, still today, it does not shy away from its role of industry frontrunner,” says our CEO, Micha-Rose Emmett.
The Awards Ceremony provides the opportunity to applaud individuals, businesses, and governments that significantly contribute to freedom of movement, investment, and residence, that excel in their industry, and that assisted individuals in their quest to become citizens of the world. Other award categories included Best Offshore Law Firm, Best International Family Office, Best Residency Programme, Best International Education Advisor, Best Global Private Banking, Best International Aviation, Best European Citizenship Adviser, Best Real Estate Development Europe, Best International Health Care Provider, Best International Luxury Product, Best Real Estate Development International, Best International Financial Centre, Best International Wealth Manager, Best Caribbean Citizenship Adviser, and Best Citizenship Programme.
