Peter Vincent, independent global security advisor to Hilton Global, participated in an Investment Migration Council (IMC) Education & Training webinar to discuss the important role that extensive due diligence investigations play in citizenship by investment programs.

The European Commission has written to Malta and Cyprus demanding they end their citizenship by investment programmes citing their incompatibility with union law. In today’s ‘Crossing Borders’ our experts will unravel the meaning of infringement procedures, and what Malta and Cyprus can expect in the coming months. We will also delve into the contents of the letters with a particular focus on the genuine links criteria, but extend our discussion to include security issues, due diligence and hear from Transparency International who have examined IM closely for the last few years.
