The Portugal Golden Visa’s €350,000 Venture Capital Fund Option – An Alternative to Heated Property Markets

Publicado 6th September 2019

The Global Peace Index – published by the Institute for Economics and Peace – ranked Portugal the third most peaceful country in the world in 2019.

This was just the official confirmation of something that more than 15,000 High Net Worth Individuals and their families since 2009 have already discovered, making Portugal the new California where entrepreneurs, businessmen and women, movie stars (like Monica Bellucci and Michael Fassbender), singers (like Madonna), and designers (like Christian Louboutin) have found a piece of heaven on earth.

Tax advantages, top-notch lifestyle make Portugal the place to be

It is fair to say that Portugal is the place to be these days, a fact several international publications like Forbes, CNN, BBC and the Financial Times – just to mention a few – have already attested to. But take it from the families who have moved to Portugal, also attracted by the personal tax program (the Non-Habitual Resident Program) or by the residency program (the Golden Visa), who can be seen exploring and discovering Lisbon, Porto or the Algarve throughout the year.

Portugal has also “stepped up its game”, not only in providing exceptional relocation conditions for families but also for businesses, by reforming its Corporate Tax Code to meet international standards in 2014.

The Portuguese Golden Visa

Naturally, the Golden Visa program played a crucial part in this global interest in Portugal, since it enables non-EU individuals to obtain the right to reside in the country for at least five years. This also allows them and their families to travel freely to and from the majority of European countries.

A Portuguese Golden Visa can lead to permanent residence and/or Portuguese citizenship and the right to an EU passport at the end of the fifth year of being classified as a resident in Portugal, all of this flowing from just one investment.

To qualify for a Golden Visa, an individual must meet and maintain one of a number of qualifying investment options (financial investments, real estate acquisition, donations, or creation of jobs in the country), as specified by the Portuguese Government.

The Golden Visa, in order to be renewed, mandates the families be in Portugal an average of only seven days a year during the five years of the program, potentially never triggering Portuguese tax residency.

Portugal’s golden visa is more than property investment

One of the most popular investment routes is the acquisition of real estate with a value of at least €500,000.

This popularity has led to an increase in the value per square meter. House prices in Portugal rose 3.3% in the first three months of 2019, compared to the last quarter of 2018; settling at €1.849 per square meter. This is an increase of 17% year-on-year, driving investors and families are to look to other investment options. The investment route that is “taking off” in the statistics is the investment into Venture Capital Funds

This investment route has some unique advantages compared to other investment routes – depending on the client’s investment appetite, of course.
