Residency and Citizenship Programmes

Comprehensive Residency and Citizenship (R&C) Planning

Acquiring a second residency and/or citizenship provides individuals and families a broad spectrum of lifestyle, business, investment and tax benefits. When planned and implemented correctly, it also provides a solid foundation upon which to build a flexible international wealth management strategy.

No two clients’ requirements and objectives are the same however, meaning R&C planning must be approached holistically, not from the mindset that one or two solutions fit all.

Our extensive international network of offices, experienced local teams and professional service partners ensure we are best placed to assist clients with the identification, development and implementation of the most suitable overall R&C strategy for their needs.
