Swiss Citizenship-by-Investment Regulator Opens Hong Kong Office


The Investment Migration Council (IMC), the worldwide association for Investor Immigration and Citizenship-by-Investment, head-quartered in Geneva, has opened offices in Hong Kong and is represented by Mandeville & Associates, a well-known Immigration Consultancy firm with over 20 years of experience in the industry.

The IMC is constituted as a non-profit association under Swiss law which gives the industry a
voice. The IMC sets the standards on a global level and helps to improve public understanding of
the issues faced by clients and governments in this area and promotes education and high
professional standards among its members.

Francois Mandeville, Founder and Partner, Mandeville & Associates states ‘the opening of a
regional representative office in Hong Kong will enable members to more easily conduct their
business matters in the Asian Pacific region whilst adhering to the high standards set by the
council through its Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct. We look forward to welcoming new
and current members and providing the necessary assistance in order to fulfil the IMC’s mission
in this region.’

Mandeville continues, ‘Migration applicants in the Asian Pacific region have increased
significantly and therefore the most obvious logical step was to collaborate with the Investment
Migration Council in order to ensure that we are providing eligible candidates the most recent
resources available in the industry.’

During the opening, IMC CEO Bruno L’ecuyer, explained that the IMC is formed by the leading
experts within the immigration and citizenship by investment industry acting as a bridge between
governments, practitioners and clients. L’ecuyer commented that ‘Hong Kong is the second of
our overseas stations outside of Geneva to open, after Dubai, from here we go to London and
New York by the end of 2015’. He went on to add ‘We have and continue to work tirelessly with
our board and Advisory Committee to bring about much needed change and a global framework
of ethical and high professional conduct to this relatively new industry. Hong Kong is a global
financial powerhouse with many important intermediaries in the private client space, where this
industry belongs’.
