* Lower taxes, as well as some Caribbean destinations offering residency permits and citizenship, are two other major reasons for the growth of ultra high net worth individuals in the region.
* Smaller Caribbean destinations like Montserrat with a population of just 5,000 rank well against some of the larger islands, having 10 ultra high net worth individuals with combined net worth of US$2 billion.
