Are you considering moving to Australia or New Zealand and would like information on the various options? Are you unfamiliar with the range of financial and migration services and not sure who to trust?
Australia and New Zealand are attractive destinations for migration with strong government, regulated financial services, good schools, clean air and enviable lifestyles. There are a range of business, employment and investment visa options to suit personal circumstances and future plans.
Australia has the Significant Investor Visa (SIV) which has relaxed language, age and other criteria. It requires applicants to invest $5M into a portfolio of complying investments for four years.

The change in complying investments to the mandated $500,000 Venture Capital (VC) and $1.5M allocation to small company shares had initially slowed the rate of applications under the new Significant Investor Visa regime. However, there are currently almost 200 invitations still being processed which alone would result in almost $100M into the VC sector and $900M into other complying managed funds.
For anyone considering moving to another country, either now or in the future, there are many lifestyle and financial issues to consider. For financial planners, fund managers and other professionals considering working with Significant Investor Visa (SIV) applicants, it’s not just about a $5,000,000 investment, they need to integrate with other professionals starting with migration.
