A unique new analytical tool to assist international companies, entrepreneurs, and investors make strategic choices about where best to locate their headquarters, executives, employees, and themselves in a pandemic world.
The Best Residence-by-Investment Cities for Business Index features 25 capitals and other major cities of countries that host the world’s most important residence-by-investment programs, which are ranked in the Global Residence Program Index (published in Investment Migration Programs 2021).
The framework comprises 10 top-level categories representing the factors most important to high- and ultra-high-net worth investors and business owners who are considering investing in residence-by-investment programs.
Each of the ten categories above consists of a matrix of between one and ten quantitative and qualitative sub-parameters that relate to the specific topic, analytical focus, and end-point of their parent category. Quantitative parameters are numeric and are obtained from a variety of reputable, publicly available sources of data. Qualitative parameters are descriptive, non-numeric, and cities are assigned values ranging from 1 to 0, representing its performance in a specific parameter.
The index utilizes a combination of publicly available databases (including but not limited to indexes and region statistics), as well as manually curated and researched quantitative data obtained using search engines, media, international organizations, and governmental reports. By adopting this approach, the present analysis attempts to find an optimal balance between using maximally transparent and reliable sources of data and including data that are only obtainable from expert consultation.
Every category calculation is constructed in such a way that a higher value is associated with more favorable conditions:
