Introducing the Citizenship by Investment Programme Report

Chetcuti Cauchi Advocates launches the first edition of the Citizenship by Investment Programmes Index (CIP Index). The Index, which highlights the Chetcuti Cauchi Advocates’ strength within the industry, serves as a guide to investors looking to invest in a second citizenship.  
In the CIP Report, each Citizenship by Investment Programme is analysed against key criteria including freedom rights and economic standards.  These features set the basis of the ranking of the 12 different countries analysed - Malta, Cyprus, Austria, Moldova, Montenegro, Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, Grenada, Saint Lucia, St Kitts and Nevis, Turkey, and Jordan. 

Key Features of the Citizenship by Investment Index

Apart from discussing the benefits, requirements and contributions of all Citizenship by Investment Programmes, the report also describes the lifestyle, economy, real estate, health, education, and security of the different countries.  As a result, the report serves as guide for investors in order to assist them in choosing the right programmes for their personal requirements based on these key features. 

The CIP Index

The CIP index is made up of four sub-indices - Programme, Freedom, Quality of Life, and Economy which in turn measure 15 different indicators that investors look at when investing in a Citizenship by Investment Programmes.

Whereas certain Citizenship by Investment Programmes ranked higher in some areas, such as quality of life in the European jurisdictions, other programmes, such as the Caribbean programmes, ranked higher in the Programme category, mainly due to the lower investment requirement and faster time to citizenship.
In this light, the index makes clear that no one programme can claim to be the right choice for all investors, but each programme must be evaluated with regard to each investor’s personal requirements.
