Global Residence and Citizenship Programs 2015 provides a comprehensive, systematic analysis and benchmarking of the world?s most relevant investor immigration and citizenship-by-investment programs. A distinguished panel of independent experts ? immigration and citizenship lawyers, economists, country risk experts, academic researchers and other specialists ? have created the Global Residence Program Index and the Global Citizenship Program Index as part of the Report. These two Indexes gauge and reflect the relative worth of residence and citizenship programs around the world. They analyse a broad range of factors to produce an overall global view and ranking of the different investment migration programs on offer. These Indexes are highly relevant to all those interested in alternative residence or citizenship options, but also for industry professionals, private client advisors and others with an interest in the subject, as well as governments of countries who operate such programs. The Report includes systematic analysis of factors such as immigration law, tax, quality of living, as well as transparency, risk and compliance issues.
