The 2nd annual Significant Investor Visa conference was held on the 3rd of July at the Hilton Hotel, Grand Ballroom, Sydney. Nearly 300 attendees including 20 panelists attended.
The conference discussed the mission-critical topics central to the success of SIV, and provided a platform for investors/their advisors/compradors, investment providers/SMEs and service providers to network.
Interest in our SIV initiatives (including our latest newsletter) has been strong, especially with the SIV programme gaining momentum. The magnitude for SIV opportunities can be seen in the $650 million in fees (immigration/legal fees alone) paid by 65,000 applicants to Canada's SIV equivalent.
And we are seeing the rise of the Australia comprador, (a reversal of history) in connecting Chinese UHNW to Australian investment opportunities.
We also note that SIV service providers and non-competing SIV product providers are becoming strong referral agents for participants in the SIV industry. The power of networking and the establishment of referral marketing channels is very evident in this new SIV industry.
