"Highlights of the Swiss attending the Jackson Hole Symposium"

"The Jackson Hole Symposium has drawn a lot of attention because of Jerome Powell's speech in which he re-stated that the Fed will continue to lift interest rates in their fight against inflation. However, some of you may not have seen the inputs of the event given by the Chairman of the Governing Board of the Swiss National Bank (SNB), Thomas J. Jordan."

The Turning Tide: Monetary Policy vs. the Real Economy

"As the BFI Infinity team had predicted in the last quarter‚Äôs issue of their "Insights" the global monetary policy ‚ÄúU-turn‚ÄĚ, spearheaded by the Federal Reserve back in May, was always more than likely destined to be short lived. So far, the Fed‚Äôs hawkishness has been in line with our expectations, as the US central bank and most of its peers are struggling to combat inflation."

Interview with WHVP's Head of Legal and Compliance, Dr. iur. Daniel Koller

"The world of Swiss asset management can seem like a foreign topic because it is for most Americans. Using Swiss financial services can even carry a controversial stigma. So we thought it was high time to deepen the topic with the head of our Legal and Compliance, Dr. iur. Daniel Koller, to share his legal perspective on Swiss-registered investment advisors. Daniel has been with WHVP for more than seven years and has a long working history of serving international clients with Europe-based financial solutions. Our executive assistant, Jess Roberson, sat down with Daniel to talk about Swiss asset management for Americans from a legal perspective."

INVESTMENT MIGRATION INSIGHTS

"The Americas region is booming ‚ÄĒ between 2019 and 2021, Henley & Partners saw a spike of 320% in new enquiries from the region. Demand has predominantly been driven by geopolitical upheaval in the USA along with shifting political dynamics in several Latin American countries, as well as the global coronavirus pandemic (and its local mismanagement) and the associated travel restrictions and mobility risk.

American citizens were by far the number one consumer of residence and citizenship by investment programs in the region ‚ÄĒ in 2021, 68.5% of new enquiries from the Americas came from the USA. This upward trend is continuing as Henley & Partners America has already received over 166% of 2021 enquiries by early February 2022, making 2022 on track to be another year of growth."
