Henley & Partners Appointed Marketing Agent for Montenegro’s Citizenship-by-Investment Program

LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Montenegro?src=hash" target="_blank"gt;#Montenegrolt;/agt;–Henley
& Partners
is delighted to have been appointed as Marketing
Agent for Montenegro’s new citizenship-by-investment
program
.

As the global leader in residence and citizenship planning, Henley &
Partners is uniquely positioned to offer unparalleled value to both
sovereign states and wealthy families. The firm has over 20 years of
experience in strategic consulting and in the design, set-up, and
operation of the world’s most successful residence and citizenship
programs. With 30 offices worldwide, Henley & Partners’ reach and scale
gives sovereign states unrivalled access to a truly diverse global pool
of wealthy entrepreneurs and investors.

Commenting on the extraordinary potential Montenegro represents for
sophisticated investors, Dr.
Juerg Steffen
, CEO of Henley & Partners, says, “Montenegro is one of
the most beautiful and dynamic countries in Europe, and its
citizenship-by-investment program will unlock global mobility for a wide
range of wealthy investors. Currently ranked 45th on the Henley
Passport Index
with a visa-free/visa-on arrival score of 123, the
country has an admirable safety record and a strong commitment to the
rule of law. As well as being a NATO member, it is a recognized
candidate for future membership of the European Union, and is in the
process of aligning its legislation with EU law.”

The Montenegro
Citizenship-by-Investment Program
will be limited to just 2000
applicants and will offer individuals several options in terms of
investment, including a EUR 450,000 investment in projects in developed
areas or a EUR 250,000 investment in projects in less developed areas.
The government will, in addition, charge a fee of EUR 100,000 per
application. The compensation will be directed to a special fund for the
development of underdeveloped areas.

Montenegro has already had significant success in attracting the global
community of high-net-worth individuals, with the Porto Montenegro
marina now a highly sought-after destination for the global elite. Dr.
Steffen says, “We look forward to supporting Montenegro and offering its
program to our global network. We are confident the new citizenship
offering will create value well beyond the benefits enjoyed by
investors. The program will be a major provider of debt free capital,
which will both strengthen and diversify the Montenegrin economy and
create new employment opportunities for Montenegro’s people and enrich
its society as a whole.”
