Spear's Review

According to Henley & Partners’ Swiss CEO, Dr Juerg Steffen, there is one thing that unites the company’s clients.

‘They consider themselves to be global citizens,’ he says. ‘They are not satisfied with being contained within a single jurisdiction – their business interests, networks, and fundamental outlooks invariably span multiple countries, political systems, and continents.’ The investment migration firm provides multiple services to private individuals, offering ‘a seamless, fully customised service both in their current location and in their target country of residence or citizenship’, says Steffen. The firm also works with professionals with specialisms in investment migration, finance, law, and tax.
