Residency and citizenship assets are an alternate asset class that rewards individuals (and their families) with the sovereign residency rights required to live, work, invest or retire in a wide range of attractive destinations around the world.
Sometimes referred to as RCBI, residency-by-investment or citizenship-by-investment, the asset class, though often negatively depicted by the media as being only for jet-setting billionaires, is increasingly being considered by mainstream American investors.
The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in severe international travel restrictions for those who solely possessed residency in their home country.
Travel restrictions were especially bad in the United States, where by September 2020, a U.S. passport holder could only travel visa-free to 86 countries — down from 171 countries the previous year.
U.S. citizens from every walk of life are growing increasingly concerned about the overall state of our union. Factors like political instability, social unrest and access to affordable healthcare have many Americans strongly considering a Plan B strategy.
