China has one the largest growths in HNWI numbers given the rapid economic growth in the last decade, and naturally, there is a huge increase in the number of Chinese nationals who want to migrate overseas. If current growth rates hold, Asia-Pacific is likely to continue to be a dominant force over the next decade, representing two-fifths of the world’s HNWI wealth, more than that of Europe, Latin American and the Middle East and Africa combined (Capgemini).
China is the world’s largest source of HWNIs with the highest demand for investment immigration programmes. Chinese nationals made up the largest single applicant demographic among each of the top 10 golden visa programs, and an absolute majority in 8 programs.

As the Common Reporting Standards (CRS) legislation comes into force in China, demand for overseas asset allocation and residency are now emerging migration trends, in addition to traditional demands for better education, welfare and mobility. Further driven by various stimulus policies overseas and domestic restrictions, Mainland Chinese investors have identified global asset allocation, tax planning and purchase of overseas property as three main opportunities and challenges (Hurun Research Institute).
Tapping on the HNWIs’ demand for overseas asset allocation and migration, there is a market shift towards immigration agents offering wealth management services and wealth management companies offering immigration services. In keeping with these trends, the Investment Immigration Summit East Asia will now be known as Global Migration and Wealth Management East Asia.
This event will address the full range of immigration and wealth management trends among HNWIs in East Asia, in particular the Mainland Chinese investor.
