10th Global Residence and Citizenship Conference

The event will gather over 300 world leaders, entrepreneurs and academics at the Savoy to discuss attractive citizenship programmes to increase HNWs' global mobility.

Registration has opened for the 10th Global Residence and Citizenship Conference, which will take place this year at the iconic Savoy Hotel in London from 9 to 11 November. Hosted by the leading international citizenship and residence advisory firm, Henley & Partners, this annual event is the world’s most important investment migration conference, bringing together presidents, prime ministers, senior government officials, leading academics and industry professionals, as well as top-tier financial and business media.

Dr. Christian H. Kälin, Chairman of Henley & Partners, says this year’s conference provides delegates with an unrivalled opportunity to engage with the leading minds and ideas driving the current global trend towards greater mobility and global citizenship.

'Alternative residence and citizenship programs offer many exciting opportunities and have become a significant aspect of international private client planning. In many respects, citizenship has become a valuable and strategic asset for talented and wealthy individuals and their families who want to operate globally, reduce their exposure to external threats, increase their international flexibility and open up new opportunities for growth,' explains Dr. Kälin.

Highlights of the two-day conference program include:

  • Opening Cocktail Reception at the National Gallery of London
  • Europe’s Future for Global Citizens
  • Quality of Nationality: a Fresh View on Nationalities
  • The Good Country
  • Grenada’s Unique Citizenship-by-Investment Proposition and E2 Treaty Visa Access to the USA
  • What Malta Can Teach the World
  • Benefits of European Residence and Citizenship Programs
  • Caribbean Evening and Government Roundtable
  • UNHCR Gala Dinner featuring a special private jazz performance by internationally acclaimed operatic soprano Barbara Hendricks and Global Citizen Award Ceremony

Some 300 delegates from around the world are expected to attend the conference, including government officials from eleven different countries as well as the presidents of Cyprus and Malta, the prime ministers of Saint Lucia as well as Antigua and Barbuda.

Other keynote speakers include journalist and former member of the UK Parliament, Michael Portillo; the Deputy High Commissioner of the UNHCR, Kelly T. Clements; Founder of the Migration Policy Institute in Washington D.C. and President of MPI Europe, Dr. Demetrios G. Papademetriou, Philosopher Alain de Botton, Good Country champion Simon Anholt, and internationally acclaimed private client lawyer and author Philip Marcovici, among many others.

Dr. Kälin says the need to develop a diverse citizenship portfolio alongside the traditional investment portfolio is being seen as an increasingly important part of the growth and sustainability strategies of wealthy families and individuals. 'At the same time, the number of investor migration programs available has steadily increased over the last five years and is expected to continue to do so. More and more governments are seeing these programs as an innovative way of driving economic growth, securing much-needed foreign investment as well as enriching their own nation by attracting people to their shores that have proven business success, many talents and valuable networks. For the world’s elite, they provide something that is less tangible and more desirable than any material object – ensuring personal mobility and security,' concludes Dr. Kälin.
