EB5 INVESTORS M AGAZINE UGLOBAL.COM 50 net-worth-individuals (HNWIs) make a sizeable economic contribution to a host country in exchange for full residence or full citizenship rights. The benefits of investment migration for individuals are well established: more freedom, the peace of mind that comes with having an alternative place of residence in an increasingly volatile world, and greater access to business, education, and travel opportunities. However, investment migration does not just offer benefits to HNWIs. Foreign direct investment (FDI) increases the value of the receiving state, bringing in capital to both the public sector — in the form of donations to the government, tax payments, or treasury bond investments — and the private sector — in the form of investments in businesses, start-ups, or real estate. Around the world, states are learning that prudently managed residence and citizenship programs with proper due diligence on applicants and clear, transparent structures are able to drive investment that meets the needs of countries, without adding to the burden of debt. Increased investment drives employment opportunities for citizens at all levels, from architects and construction workers, to manufacturing and technology companies, and to the tourism sector and other service industries. A recent report estimated that investment migration has brought approximately 25 billion euros in FDI into EU countries since 2010, and it is widely understood that residence- and citizenship-by-investment have been fundamental to these countries’ economic recovery following both the global financial crisis and the European sovereign debt crisis. Take Malta as an example: Just years after the launch of Individual Investor Program in 2014, the country has one of the highest growth rates and one of the lowest unemployment levels of any European Union member state. It is now the best performing economy in the European Union by almost any measure. It is no surprise, then, that Moldova has adopted a form of inbound investment that has already had such markedly positive effects for dozens of sovereign states around the world. 47 EB-5 ANALYICS We are completely independent and impartial.
