ANN@The China Post

有錢人的世界我們不懂,但是我們知道很多有錢人都愛移民到國外發達國家。現在哪個國家是富豪移民的最愛呢?美國?英國?加拿大?一起來看看。

Australia is the top destination for millionaires on the move. 澳大利亞是百萬富翁移居的首選目的地。

An estimated 11,000 millionaires moved to Australia in 2016, according to a new report by wealth research firm New World Wealth. That compares to 8,000 millionaires who moved Down Under the previous year. 根據財富調查公司新世界財富的一項新報告,2016年估計有1.1萬富豪移民到澳大利亞。而前一年移居澳大利亞的富豪人數為8000。

The US and UK have traditionally attracted the highest number of wealthy migrants. But the allure of Australia has increased in recent years, especially for wealthy citizens of China and India. 傳統上,美國和英國吸引的富有移民人數最多。不過近年來澳大利亞的吸引力一直在增強,特別是對中國和印度的富人。

New World Wealth said migrating millionaires are drawn to the sunny Australian lifestyle, as well as the country’s highly rated health care system, which is considered to be in better shape than those in the US and UK. 新世界財富公司表示,澳大利亞的醫療保健系統評價很高,超越了美國和英國,移民的富豪們也被充滿陽光的澳洲生活方式所吸引。

It’s considered a safe place to live and raise children, and it’s geographically isolated from conflicts in the Middle East and the refugee crisis in Europe. 澳大利亞在地理上與中東的戰亂和歐洲的難民危機隔絕,被認為是生活和育兒的安全地方。

Business considerations also play a role: Australia is a good base for doing business in emerging Asian countries such as China, South Korea, Singapore and India, the researchers said. 研究人員稱,商業上的考慮也是其中一個因素:對於中國、韓國、新加坡和印度等新興亞洲國家的人而言,澳大利亞是做生意的好基地。

The US is still considered a highly desirable destination, welcoming 10,000 foreign millionaires last year. New World Wealth expects demand to remain high. 美國仍然被視為非常理想的移民目的地,去年吸引了1萬富豪移民。新世界財富公司預計移民美國的需求將會繼續保持在高位。

“We don’t think the new leadership in the US will have a big impact. We expect another big net inflow of high-net worth individuals into the US in 2017,” said Andrew Amoils, head of research at New World Wealth. 新世界財富公司的研究部主管安德魯•阿莫伊爾斯說:“我們認為美國的新領導人對移民趨勢不會產生太大影響。2017年我們預計還將有大批高淨值個人移民美國。”

Canada also saw of surge of 8,000 new millionaires coming to its shores. Rich Chinese citizens are moving to Vancouver while Europeans generally head to Toronto and Montreal. 加拿大也迎來了8000個富豪新移民。富裕的中國公民選擇移居溫哥華,而有錢的歐洲人則移居多倫多和蒙特利爾。

Fleeing France 逃離法國

Meanwhile, France is suffering from a major exodus of rich individuals. 與此同時,法國正遭遇富人大舉外遷的局面。

Over 12,000 millionaires left France last year, according to New World Wealth. In total, the country has experienced a net outflow of over 60,000 millionaires since 2000. 據新世界財富公司的資料,去年超1.2萬富人離開了法國。自2000年以來,離開法國的富豪總人數已經超過了6萬。

The authors cited religious tensions as one reason why the rich are packing their bags and moving to countries including the UK, Canada, Australia, the US and Israel. 研究報告作者指出,宗教緊張局面是富人們舉家遷往英國、加拿大、澳大利亞、美國和以色列等國家的原因之一。
