Session 10: Panel Discussion–What Exactly Makes the Caribbean Attractive to Wealthy Americans?
Panel Objective: As world economies undergo massive changes, there has never been a better time to secure second citizenship that can protect the wealth and family from financial and political turmoil, as well as give visa-free access to a lot more places. The industry is witnessing a surge in the number of HNWIs looking for a Caribbean passport. This panel navigates how investors in America make a strategic choice that offers key financial advantages and relief from global taxation, under the ongoing great reconfiguration of the investment immigration market.
Key Points to Address: •What are the biggest recent changes in the citizenship-by-investment industry in America since the global health crisis and what are the key drivers of industry growth?
•What factors have affected the American investor migrants’ decisions on seeking second citizenship plans and eyeing the Caribbean, despite the concerns?
•How to consider a holistic plan that fits every aspect of the personal and financial portfolio of the investors when the opportunities in the Caribbean are examined?
•How does taxation play a role in the Caribbean options under the current economic landscape, whenever taxation implications act as a primary motive for such a decision or as a direct consequence?
•How could advisors help investor migrants scan the challenges and risks, particularly those associated with the real estate in the host countries to acquire citizenship or the ones related to program administrators?

Session 13: Panel Discussion–Investment Opportunities and Strategic Choice in Europe for Plan B
Panel Objective: Americans have been considering Europe as the salvation to escape from the uncertainties. Partly as a result of that, the investment immigration industry in Europe has grown immensely in recent years and there is no doubt it will exponentially develop in the near future. This panel explores the residence measures not only for greater mobility but also for safer livelihoods and better financial freedom that has become the long-term practice of wealthy Americans.
Key Points to Address•What are the changing mindsets of wealthy individuals who have been considering a plan B that would help them and their families become safer amid the current situation?
•How have these resulted in their relocation plans or residence plans and more careful decisions than ever?
•What needs to be taken into account in terms of the new domicile destination or program option when the individuals are open to new possibilities?
•With the complexity of how citizenships or residences will affect the basis of the wealth management and tax planning that the HNW clients have to face, how about the strategic choice to be employed?
•With the complexity of more stringent global regulations, how are the clients ensured compliant with new policies and scrutiny processes, when their assets are more diversified and more exposed to worldwide volatility?
