A seasoned maven of the investment migration-related due diligence field and a familiar name to industry observers, Kim Marsh, will be joining Arton Capital in a bid to expand the firm’s government advisory practice. Joining Marsh is Eric Schultz, a former US ambassador to Zambia, according to a press release.
Marsh is the former Vice Chairman of Exiger’s Immigration, Visa and Citizenship Practice (Exiger ICV), a firm now headed by another old hand from the CIP-due diligence world, Thomas Anthony.
Marsh also has a 15-year past working for due diligence company IPSA, the same firm with which Arton Capital last year formed a consortium to bid for a concession to develop Montenegro’s planned citizenship by investment program (the other consortium consisting of Henley & Partners and three other firms, including Fragomen), a tender Montenegrin authorities ultimately withdrew after changing their mind about seeking outside assistance.
According to the press release, Marsh was “instrumental in the establishment of the professional compliance association for the Citizenship by Investment Units in The Caribbean,” and he “specializes in multi-jurisdictional corruption, bribery, and due diligence investigations, as well as anti-money laundering assignments targeting onshore and offshore global tax havens”.
