  • In an uncertain world, wealthy individuals are seeking an insurance policy for themselves, their families and their money
  • Rich people like to have options, whether these relate to where they and their families live, or where they do business to benefit from global opportunities.
  • Other countries often offer a better living environment in terms of climate, personal security, healthcare and transport systems, among other factors
  • Many wealthy individuals are also increasingly attracted to the concept of relocating for the sake of their children, perhaps to get access to higher-quality education in places like the UK or US, for example
  • An increasingly popular driver for looking at other ‘safer’ countries is the search for personal security. – which can also mean more privacy
  • Relocating might also be an effective (legal) way for someone to reduce tax burdens
  • HNW and UHNW individuals are also looking for citizenship in some countries, to get their passport
