About the Firm

Henley & Partners is the global leader in residence and citizenship planning. Each year, hundreds of wealthy individuals and their advisors rely on our expertise and experience in this area. Our highly qualified professionals work together as one team in over 30 offices worldwide.

The concept of residence and citizenship planning was created by Henley & Partners in the 1990s. As globalization has expanded, residence and citizenship have become topics of significant interest among the increasing number of internationally mobile entrepreneurs and investors whom we proudly serve every day.

Trusted by governments, the firm also runs a leading government advisory practice that has raised more than USD 8 billion in foreign direct investment. We have been involved in strategic consulting and the design, set-up, and operation of the world’s most successful residence and citizenship programs.

While its origins date back more than 45 years, Henley & Partners as it is today was formed in 1997 through the combination of a private client immigration consultancy and a fiduciary company. Today the firm is focused exclusively on residence and citizenship planning and is operating via more than 30 offices worldwide.

The companies of the group, as well as most of its individual partners, directors and senior officers, are regulated where applicable by the respective authorities in the countries where they operate. They are also members of various professional associations such as the Investment Migration Council, Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners, The International Tax Planning Association, International Fiscal Association, Fédération Internationale des Administrateurs de Biens Conseils et Agents Immobiliers, and others.

We provide a range of services which are essential to protect and grow your wealth. However, as we often act as close advisors to our clients, we intentionally refrain from offering investment advice or asset management. In these sectors, we work together with many of the world's leading banks and most successful investment managers.

Our vision

Making global citizenship a reality and supporting the development of countries and their people

We enable families to invest and live in countries of their choice and assist governments to create value for their countries and people. All that we do has a positive impact on the individuals we touch and the outcomes we create. We make life safer and more enjoyable for anyone we engage with, including those whose places of birth and citizenship have made them less fortunate.

Our purpose

Enhancing human potential through global citizenship

We work towards a world where a sensible flow of people and capital between countries — for trade, tourism, labor, and investment — contributes to global peace and prosperity and where people live in dignity and security in their countries of birth or countries of choice.

Our principles

Like our clients, we place particular emphasis on a practical approach and impeccable quality. To ensure that we consistently satisfy the high expectations of our clients, our firm is guided by four principles that form the basis of how we work:

  • To offer our services only if we can be of genuine assistance
  • To present our clients with a highly professional and personal service
  • To find the best solutions available by means of a rigorous and efficient approach
  • To base our business on honesty, integrity, and the highest ethical standards
