Thomas Anthony, who has headed the Grenada Citizenship by Investment Unit (CIU) since September 1st last year, will not be renewing his one-year contract when it expires on August 31st.
Anthony confirmed as much in a message to IMI’s editor but did not at present wish to publicly comment on the reasons for his departure.
During Anthony’s term, the Grenada Citizenship by Investment Programme has undergone a series of broad policy enhancements, including:
- In March, the CIP introduced wide-ranging amendments to the definition of “dependent” and announced that the CIP-real estate would be available on a secondary market.
- Also in March, it opened for the possibility of co-investment in real estate, effectively reducing the minimum investment from US$350,000 to US$220,000, but also imposed strict requirements on developers who wished to market their projects under the new price option.
- The CIU announced stringent documentation requirements for real estate transactions aimed to avoid the illegal discounting experienced among similar programs in the region.
