Why Filipinos Should Be Excited About Second Residency Opportunities Opening Up Abroad

It's a known fact that Filipinos have an increasing appetite for international travel.

But what if we told you that experiencing the beauty of other nations can now be done in a totally new way—in a more permanent and personal way, specifically through becoming citizens of your country of choosing? 

Good news abounds for Filipinos interested in the opportunity as Arton Capital, a Canadian global financial advisory firm specializing in investor programs for residence and citizenship, makes this pipe dream an achievable reality for them this year.

In partnership with EnterPH, a local business consultancy firm newly co-founded by Attorney Rocky Chan and Consul Rene "RJ" Ledesma, Jr. of Monaco, Arton opens up a major avenue for Filipinos to diversify their portfolio while reaping the benefits of a well-traveled life.

Encouraging high-networth Filipino investors to set up shop in North America, Bulgaria, Antigua and Barbuda, Portugal, Malta, and soon, Montenegro, Arton Capital successfully redefines what it means for them to become bona fide "global citizens." 

To date, the Canadian company has attracted at least $4 billion in foreign direct investments, not only proving the attractiveness of their program, but more importantly, its stability. Arton currently works with 11 governments and is working on expanding its network, the Philippines being its newest partner. 



This solid investment opportunity was officially presented by Arton Capital's founder and president Armand Arton, VP Head of Asia Pacific Philippe May, and VP for Global Growth and Strategy Lorenzo Jooris last January with members of the press and potential stakeholders attending the event. 

“The Philippine launch is a very important leg of our Asian campaign and we are ecstatic to see so much interest towards global citizenship. We are excited to work with EnterPH as our partner in the country,” said Armand.
