Citizenship by Investment

SFM is glad to offer access to citizenship by investment schemes to its clients around the world. We have partnered up with a top tier law firm specialized in citizenship schemes, offering the service in 7 different countries.

We take great care to listen to you and to understand your vision for yourself and for your family, in the knowledge that each individual’s needs, aspirations, and desires are unique. Citizenship by investment has been very sought after by our clients, whether to have access to growing markets, to travel without having to wait for a visa, or simply for added stability in their everyday life.

Please find below a matrix of the different plans available. You are welcome to contact us should you wish any additional information on any of these schemes. We shall be glad to send you detailed information upon request.
