January 21, 2016 marked the end of the NTL Caribbean Citizenship Summit held in Antigua, St. Kitts & Nevis, Grenada and St. Lucia, which recruited more than 50 attendees from 12 different countries, gathered major players in the Citizenship by Investment industry, and aroused great interest among offshore and immigration professionals. The next Caribbean Citizenship Summits are planned for November 3-10, 2016 in Grenada, Dominica and St. Lucia and May 1-8, 2017 in Antigua, St. Kitts and Nevis.
Lawyers, financial consultants, wealth managers, immigration agents, and individual investors had the unique opportunity to discuss developments in global markets concentrating on the new schemes and changes to the Citizenship by Investment Programmes (CIP) offered in the Caribbean.
NTL’s approach to Citizenship Summits is vastly different than most firms in that we offer a one-of-a-kind ‘boots on the ground’ opportunity for guests with a chance to learn more about second citizenships, international asset protection and wealth planning, tour the latest Real Estate Approved Projects for Citizenship… all the while enjoying an idyllic Caribbean experience. We promote the importance of the island countries and the West Indie cultures; not just sell passports. We feel that although the governments don't require it, it is better for investors to come and experience and see the islands, the people and the culture.
“The Summit offered a great variety of approved Citizenship by Investment developments, and at a variety of price points, from entry level to multi-million dollar investments. It was highly important for us to check the quality of real estate development we can offer to our clientele,” comments a wealth manager from Moscow.
Speakers at the Summit included representatives from all Caribbean Citizenship Programmes; the Prime Minister of Antigua and Barbuda, Honourable Gaston Browne; Prime Minister of the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis, Honourable Timothy Harris; Primer of Nevis Island, Honourable Vance Amory; and Mr. Thomas Anthony and David Holukoff, leaders of the Antigua and Grenada Citizenship Programmes, respectively.
“We provide important information to unanswered questions and show the distinctive flavours of the Caribbean as it is; each island has an active and involved Government, specialized real estate options with rising market conditions and trends, and the local lifestyle can’t be beat,” said Robert Martin, NTL Immigration Director. “The event was very successful, and we know how to make the next one even more useful and individualized. The West Indies has a vast array of opportunities to offer professionals in immigration and offshore industries, as well as HNWI from all over the globe. Due to the success of the January event, we have decided to hold the Summit twice a year so we can provide greater attention to each of the five jurisdictions.“
As the desire for freedom to travel, protection of wealth/assets grows, Citizenship by Investment Programmes have flourished around the world. The Citizenship Summit held in Grenada, Dominica and St. Lucia on November 3 - November 10, 2016 and in Antigua & Barbuda and St. Kitts & Nevis, May 1 - May 8 2017 will uncover the newest and most exciting opportunities for investors to network with leading immigration specialists and tour the latest approved developments offered for the CIP.
“The greatest advantage of attending the Summit was getting answers to my questions first hand and seeing things with my own eyes,” stated an attendee from Hong Kong, “I highly recommend visiting the Caribbean to anyone interested in the Citizenship programmes.”
