In Shaping Tomorrow our attention has been focused on the number of breakthrough Covid-19 case reported in the US – that remain rare. As of late April, around 101 million Americans had been fully vaccinated and data states that 10,262 cases of Covid-19 occurred among fully vaccinated people, 995 of whom required hospitalization with 160 deaths recorded.

Other reads of note include the always pertinent life lessons type. From one of the most penetrating minds in history, René Girard's insights have an Einstein quality to them which we are sure you'll find fascinating.

As for the rest, enjoy the sights and sounds further down the newsletter.

Till next time. Toodles!


Gulf Israel Women's Group Morning


Hosted by our MD, Leah Tedrow, the Gulf Israel Women's Forum gathered for a breakfast catch up at The Capital Club, Dubai.

From trail-blazers in tech to pioneers in politics, the forum is a hotbed of women who learn and lead from each other in this unique cultural exchange. At the core, the human connection that comes of these gatherings is the most important take-away for us where we continue to strike up gratifying relationships.

Between business leads and breakfast goals, we'd say it was a very successful end to the week!

Huriya Private Now The Agent For North Macedonia's Citizenship by Investment Program


We are delighted to announce our client, Huriya Private have become authorised agents for the North Macedonia citizenship by investment programme.

North Macedonia’s long-awaited Citizenship by Investment programme will require applicants to donate €200,0000 to a government fund in return for Citizenship and a North Macedonian passport. On top of the government donation, additional due diligence, application, and processing fees will be required. Like several other CBI programmes, the time frame from submission to approval will take approximately 3-4 months. Main applicants will be able to include their spouse and children up to the age of 18 years old. The programme will also have an annual application quota, allowing just 1,000 applicants to be approved each year.

“Huriya Private welcomes these steps made by the North Macedonian government for making this new Citizenship by Investment programme available and is honoured to be appointed as an official agent,” says CEO and Founder John Hanafin, Huriya Private.

North Macedonia was ranked 17th on the World Banks Ease of Doing Business rating 2020, but it will, presumably, return to top ten positions after reforms are further implemented.

“North Macedonia offers an utterly unique experience through friendly locals and welcoming hospitality, leaving an unforgettable memory of the country’s fresh, tasty food and wine next to a picturesque landscape,” Hanafin adds.

Huriya Private provides consultations to investors who are interested in citizenship programs around the world. As a bespoke multi-family office, Huriya Private operates on the basis of an individual approach for each client and each case, no matter how complex it is.

The process of Wines From Another World looks like this:it's set to add one wine to the Martin’s Wine Advisor collection each year, until there are nine wines to represent one for each planet in the solar system. Each wine will come in a luxurious box and will include a QR code for collectors to engage in more information about their wine with photos of the winemakers, vineyards and exclusive access to events for Wines From Another World collectors.

Oh and they were the winners of Best Wine Advisory Service 2019 UK at the LUX Life Food &Drink Awards – so you know their finds are nothing short of spectacular. We'll keep you posted on these guys as their series unfolds...
