Wealth-X & Arton Capital Philanthropy Report 2015

Wealth-X & Arton Capital Philanthropy Report 2015

America’s billionaire entrepreneurs give, on average, US$179.5 million per person to various causes during their lifetimes — more than any other ultra high net worth (UHNW) donor group — according to a new report by Wealth-X and Arton Capital that also looked at the giving trends of ultra wealthy individuals and how the wealthy are currently giving back to the refugee crisis. The Wealth-X and Arton Capital Major Giving Index, which tracks trends in UHNW charitable giving since 2004, was up 6.4% year-over-year. With emerging markets beginning to slow down and uncertainty over the global economy setting in, the growth in the index trailed the 36.6% increase seen the year before.

The Wealthy Migrant

The Wealthy Migrant

The wealthy migrant is a study of high net worth individuals (HNWIs) who have relocated to another country, acquired a new citizenship, or plan to do either of these. The focus of the research is the motivations of these groups of HNWIs for relocating to another country or for acquiring a new nationality, and the specific factors that influence their choice of destination country. For the purposes of this research, HNWIs are defined as individuals with investable assets of US$1m or more (excluding real estate).

Corporate Immigration Law Review – 5th Edition

Corporate Immigration Law Review – 5th Edition

One of the benefits of being immigration practitioners is that the subject is never out of the news. The discipline has been a hot political topic for over a decade and the current climate provides no exception. Across the globe political parties perceive the immigration debate as a mechanism with which to gain the attention of the voting public. The present leaders are focused on numbers and they hope to brandish a huge reduction in net migration to the electorate in two years’ time. Their ability to contain migrant flow is constrained by the provisions of international treaties (most importantly the Treaty of Rome) and the development of human rights laws with associated protections of the family unit. It has, therefore, been the working and business populations that have been most affected by the drive to bring down numbers. The relative easing in the economic crisis globally does not yet appear to have had a favourable impact on immigration policy. It will be some time before politicians are comfortable with a more flexible approach to international labour flows. Throughout the chapters of the book, you will see a marked tendency towards increased regulation and constraint.

Wealth-X and Arton Capital Philanthropy Report 2014

Wealth-X and Arton Capital Philanthropy Report 2014

Wealth-X and Arton Capital released a report that reveals that the typical ultra-wealthy philanthropist donates US$25 million over the course of his or her lifetime, is 64 years old, has an average net worth of US$240 million, and an average liquidity of US$46 million. These are some of the findings of the inaugural Wealth-X and Arton Capital Philanthropy Report 2014 that examines the full spectrum of ultra high net worth (UHNW) philanthropic activities, identifies trends in UHNW giving, provides the profile and traits of ultra wealthy philanthropists, and highlights their motivations in contributing to charities across a range of areas and sectors. The Wealth-X and Arton Capital Major Giving Index, which tracks trends in UHNW charitable giving, shows that the level of traditional philanthropic donations remains strong. The index has risen in the past few years, reaching a level of 220 in 2013 – making it the strongest year for UHNW giving since the 1997-8 global financial crisis, and only 12 points below the all-time high of 232 in 2006. However, the report reveals that UHNW philanthropists are expanding their philanthropic approaches and activities, shifting from major giving towards self-sustaining projects and entrepreneurialism.

A Shrinking World: Global Citizenship for UHNW Individuals

A Shrinking World: Global Citizenship for UHNW Individuals

In a report released by Arton Capital and Wealth-X, nearly 60% of applicants for second citizenship or second residence programs come from the Middle East, but Asia is the new frontier with ultra wealthy Chinese and Indian nationals and non-residents likely to spur demand for these programs in the next five years. These are some of the key findings of a joint special report released today by Wealth-X, the world’s leading UHNW intelligence and prospecting firm, and Arton Capital, the global citizenship experts, at a Dubai forum on global citizenship. Global citizenship programs offer individuals and their families residency and citizenship options in a host country, with economic investment in a pre-defined list of assets within the country as a precondition. The report, titled A Shrinking World: Global Citizenship for UHNW Individuals, also showed that the average net worth of a second citizenship applicant is well above the global average for UHNW individuals. Second citizenship applicants have an average net worth of US$205 million, compared to the global UHNW average of US$135 million. The report also revealed that applicants have better liquidity, more than US$66 million per person, nearly double the global average of US$35 million. This means that these individuals can easily meet all the requirements for citizenship or immigrant investor programs with their liquid investments. Discover more.
