St Kitts and Nevis: Michael Martin- the Head of the Citizenship by Investment Unit (CIU) of St Kitts and Nevis, has been adopting strategic goals to rebrand and refocus its CBI programme. Under his leadership, the unit charted a path towards ensuring that its economic citizenship programme is sustainable as the platinum brand, for which it has become renewed for many more years.
St Kitts and Nevis have been the pioneer of the global investor immigration industry for nearly 40 years, and CIU Head has been working to thrive the programme so that it could touch the heights of development. With a clear focus and full determination, he has been working to enhance the programme so that it continues to be the benchmark of the investment migration industry.
In order to meet the needs of high-net-worth individuals and investment-minded people looking for an enriching base for their families and businesses, Michael Martin has taken concrete steps to update and enhance certain aspects of the Citizenship by Investment Programme of St Kitts and Nevis.
One of the efficient steps taken out by the CIU was the introduction of the Limited Time Offer applicable to the Sustainable Growth Fund investment option of the Citizenship by Investment Programme of St Kitts and Nevis starting from January 1, 2023. The offer will be ended on June 30, 2023 and with a reduced investment amount of only USD 125,000 into the Sustainable Growth Fund, a qualified individual can be awarded citizenship in only 60 days.
Along with that, CIU Head Martin has been putting more focus on the enhancement of the efficiency and effectiveness of the Sustainable Growth Fund of the Citizenship by Investment Programme of St Kitts and Nevis. Michael Martin stated that the Sustainable Growth Fund is designed to enhance development in the country and its people.
Highlighting the significance of the Sustainable Growth Fund, he said, “The funds received under SGF go into assistance of schools, medical facilities, new enterprises, and technology. It is a very important option in our citizenship by investment programme.”
The upliftment of the Fund Option became his priority as he believed that its development will benefit not only St Kitts and Nevis but also the local as well as international investors through the benefits such as access to diversified markets, routes to efficient wealth planning and a chance to get the citizenship for life.
With his efficient experience in the investment migration industry and local roots, Martin has been working to enhance the programme so that it could meet the requirements of the stakeholders and assist the upliftment of the people of St Kitts and Nevis. He is also leading a team of efficient and focused experts who is keen to ensure that the programmes increase processing efficiency and accuracy while also maintaining strong due diligence processes so that only investors of the highest calibre are accepted.
