LONDON – (BUSINESS WIRE) – July 29, 2021–

Henley & Associates The President, Dr Christian H. Kaelin, said that the significant global expansion of investment migration, whereby affluent individuals invest in other countries to acquire residency or citizenship, is simply unstoppable. Speaking to Gala dinner The World to Come hosted by The Economist in Athens last week, Dr Kaelin said countries around the world have realized the importance of residency and citizenship in attracting much needed foreign direct investment, debt-free capital, talented entrepreneurs and investors experienced.

Dr Kaelin, who is widely regarded as the pioneer and one of the world’s foremost experts on investment migration, shared the stage with Irish Finance Minister and Eurogroup Chairman Paschal Donohoe and the Greek Minister of Finance, Christos Staikouras, at the annual conference event to discuss the coming year with government and business leaders.

Accelerated by the need to alleviate the financial distress following the Covid-19 pandemic across the world, Dr Kaelin pointed out that more and more countries are offering investment migration programs or introducing new options in order to ” attract highly sought-after talent and capital. to support their economies and strengthen their “sovereign equity”. Dr Kaelin coined the term ‘sovereign equity’ in Davos 2019 to describe how investment migration has the capacity to endow nations with sustainable investments in a relatively short period of time without them having to go into debt and to weigh on future generations – while gaining highly skilled skills. and experienced entrepreneurs and investors as new residents or even citizens.

Dr Kaelin stressed that, especially in Europe, there is also an urgent need to introduce much more positive migration policies to constructively manage the global refugee crisis while attracting international investors and talent. He acknowledged that although politically difficult, it also represents a tremendous opportunity for the EU. “We need more, not less immigration of people who make a positive contribution to society,” he told the audience.
