In today’s volatile world, having multiple options in terms of residence and citizenship provides high-net-worth families with greater global mobility, increased security, improved access to premium education, and more extensive business and investment opportunities. At the same time, sovereign states recognize the innovative financing opportunity that such programs present: sovereign equity is clearly the better alternative than sovereign debt, especially for smaller nations.

Join us at the Global Citizenship Conference and benefit from high-level, interactive discussion sessions, presentations, and participative workshops featuring pre-eminent thought leaders, government decision makers including several prime ministers and senior government ministers, leading academics, and investment migration experts from around the globe.

The 17th Global Citizenship Conference will give the latest insights into worldwide residence and citizenship options from the global leader in the sector, as well as encompassing key themes including:

  • The present and future of global citizenship
  • The global economic and political landscape: where to be and where not to be in the future?
  • Wealth planning for global citizens
  • International perspectives on well-being, family life, and longevity
  • The best real estate-linked residence and citizenship options on every continent
  • Trends in due diligence and regulatory frameworks
