In fact, through our partners at United Van Lines, we can help prospective movers from anywhere across the US move to anywhere across the world. Today, MacDonald Moving Services would like to share the most popular destinations for millionaires choosing to relocate internationally, as indicated by a report prepared by New World Wealth, a global wealth intelligence and market research company.
Most Popular International Moving Destinations For Millionaires in 2016
Topping the 2016 list of top destinations for migrating millionaires is Australia, with about 11,000 millionaires from a variety of locations across the world choosing to become Aussies, up from 8,000 in 2015. The U.S. and Canada also are listed as top destinations for millionaires, welcoming 10,000 and 8,000 foreign millionaire migrants in 2016 respectively. Wealthy Chinese immigrants moving to Canada typically choose to relocate to the Western Coast, near Vancouver, while Europeans generally prefer Eastern cities like Toronto and French-speaking Montreal. (France, by the way, had the highest emigration rate among millionaires, with approximately 12,000 millionaires choosing to find new home countries.)
In previous years, the United States and Great Britain have typically attracted the highest number of wealthy migrants. However, the Australian lifestyle is considered by analysts to be a large contributing factor to its rise in the ranks, with its appealing weather, highly rated health care system to Australia, and good reputation as a safe place to live and raise children. Australia also enjoys geographic benefits, being isolated from conflicts in the Middle East and the refugee crisis in Europe and close enough to the up and coming economies of Asian countries like China, India, and South Korea in order to serve as a home base for starting new businesses.
New World Wealth’s annual report is sourced from a variety of sources, including information on wealth statistics, property data, investor visa information as well as interviews with relocation experts.
