Here we all are roughly two years after the Covid-19 pandemic struck, and while things are getting slightly easier in some countries, business travel remains extremely difficult, while social and family travel is still hugely restricted, especially outside Europe. While the private banking and wealth management industry has managed to flourish amidst seeming adversity, another business encompassing the world of investment migration has also been thriving, turbo-charged by the uncertainties wrought by the pandemic.

To plot the coordinates of exactly where the global investment migration industry is right now, where it is heading, and what it all means to Asia’s private clients looking overseas and to global HNWIs and UHNWIs looking at Asia, Hubbis will hold a Digital Dialogue even on May 5th that will uncover the key trends and identify the most compelling opportunities.

The overriding narrative is that demand for global residence and citizenship alternatives from Asia’s private clients has never been stronger, and demand for Asian alternatives from global clients remains remarkably robust. In short, even more of the world’s wealthy see the value of these alternatives, and the investment migration industry is on a dramatic expansion trail.

There are nuances in the demand. Interest came historically from many emerging countries with weaker passports, but today demand from the wealthy in the US has been remarkably strong, with clients from the States sometimes even assembling a mini portfolio of residence and citizenship alternatives. The Middle East market is no longer just an exit launchpad – it has opened significantly for inward migration as liberalisation takes place there and as the economies diversify and expand, and some of the demand is already coming from Asia’s private clients, even some from Singapore and Hong Kong.

The Singapore market for inward migration of very wealthy clients, some establishing large single-family offices, is robust, although somewhat hampered still by tough pandemic restrictions. Hong Kong is a source of major outward demand, as the government keeps a very tight lid on mobility and travel in the (possibly vain) attempt to stamp out the virus. Demand from the more emerging markets of Asia continues to be strong, with clients eyeing an expanding world of opportunities in Europe, the Americas and the Caribbean, the Middle East and Australia/New Zealand.

The Hubbis Digital Dialogue event of May 5th will analyse the key trends in Asia – both for inward and outward-bound clients – and the panel of experts will survey the more interesting existing and upcoming opportunities.
