Several experiences have stimulated my commitment to, and interest in, research. In the summer of 2012 and I successfully completed my LLB (hons) degree, truly a great achievement for my family and myself but nevertheless, my higher education endeavours where not quite finished. Over time, I grew interested in Corporate Law, and later, without completely realising, I had found the area of law that sparked my interest most as it was detailed, practical and captivating. In 2016 after working with the government of Antigua and Barbuda as the Intellectual Property and Commerce Legal and Technical Officer in the Ministry of Legal Affairs , I decided to persue an LLM in Corporate and Financial Law at Kingston University London where I successfully graduated with Merit in 2017. Fast forward to 2020, and I am currently a PhD research candidate at the Coventry University in the UK.
My intention is to significantly develop corporate investment migration and assist with the further development of citizenship by investment programmes which, in my view, could be one of the leading forms of foreign direct investment for practising nations. This blog will illustrate considerations for commonwealth island nations such as Antigua and Barbuda, Malta, Cyprus and St Lucia, so that they can continue to benefit economically, in consideration of current global issues and the application of Artificial Intelligence tools. Moreover, I will consider future prospects for legal policy and administrative development of these investment programmes, and ensure that they are continuously regulated with specific technological and risk management tools being introduced. The over arching goal is to secure a ‘risk free’ Citizenship by Investment industry governed by state leaders armed with the latest technological tools for risk aversion and compliance purposes.
