Hosted by leading international citizenship and residence advisory firm Henley & Partners, this annual event has become the world’s largest and most significant conference on investment migration, bringing together presidents, prime ministers, senior government ministers and officials, leading academics, experienced industry professionals, and top-tier financial and business media.

Dr. Christian H. Kalin, Group Chairman of Henley & Partners, says residence- and citizenship-by-investment programmes are very much the new frontier in terms of freedom, flexibility, and future-readiness. “The societal and economic value they are able to generate is truly extraordinary, which is why we are seeing such strong industry growth year-on-year. The industry as a whole, with residence and citizenship combined, is currently grossing roughly $18 billion per year, and we expect that we will hit the $20 billion mark very soon.”
