For the world’s wealthy, the pinnacle of achievement is to own what is exclusive and rare, so an island property is a must. Based on a report by Candy & Candy, Savills World Research and Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management, the Bahamas has claimed the second spot in a new list of the world’s top 20 islands for ultra-high net worth individuals (UNHWI) real estate investment.
“A private island is the ultimate trophy asset,” says Nicholas Candy, CEO, Candy & Candy. “But financial return is not the primary motivation. These buyers are seeking the ultimate hideaway and a chance to shape their own world. For them, the qualities “remote” and “private” are priceless.”
Beginning 50 miles off the coast of Florida, the Bahamas are a breathtaking chain of gold-and-pink beaches, stately palms and a lush world of tropical foliage. Awash in year-round sunshine, the Bahamas are a great destination for snorkeling, diving, and boating as well as the perfect setting for pure relaxation and renewal. With that being said, they also provide some fantastic investment opportunities. It’s a paradise that lures in the world’s elite.
Bermuda in the North Atlantic and the Channel Islands in Europe also topped the list.
