At Davos in January, Henley & Partners hosted two panel discussions promoting open debate about some of the most critical questions in the investment migration industry — and indeed, the world — today.
The first panel, titled ‘Global Citizenship, Blockchain, and Digital Governments’, which was co-hosted with global blockchain advisory firm Ledgerstate, explored how digital technologies are transforming governments and citizenship. Among the key panelists were Dr. Juerg Steffen, CEO of Henley & Partners; Damir Yandrich, Chairman of Ledgerstate; the Hon. Gaston Browne, Prime Minister of Antigua and Barbuda; the Hon. Prof. Edward Scicluna MP, Malta’s Minister of Finance; Prof. Dr. Dimitry Kochenov, Chairman of the Investment Migration Council; Simon Anholt, Founder of The Good Country; and John Abbott, Director of Business Growth and Partnerships, Yoti.
The second panel, ‘Investment Migration: Sovereign Equity versus Sovereign Debt — A Paradigm Shift for Governments and Global Citizens’, was the first time Henley & Partners’ Chairman, Dr. Christian H. Kälin, publicly presented the concept of sovereign equity to an international forum. Sharing the stage to discuss investment migration’s role in building sovereign equity for sovereign states, were the Hon. Gaston Browne, Prime Minister of Antigua and Barbuda; Dr. Parag Khanna, Managing Partner of FutureMap; Simon Anholt, Founder of The Good Country; Prof. Dr. Dimitry Kochenov, Chairman, Investment Migration Council; Hon. Prof. Edward Scicluna MP, Minister of Finance, Malta; and Kairat Kelimbetov, Governor of Astana International Financial Center.
