Heading across the Atlantic, we examine the USA’s new Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) and how it will impact international banking. Nearer to home, we look at the reasoning and rationale behind the decision to open the Saudi Stock Exchange to foreign companies.

We cross the Mediterranean and visit the dynamic city of Milan to bring you an insight into EXPO 2015. The DORCHESTER finds out about the benefits, the costs, the struggles and the success stories of this world renowned event, taking into account both its long-term impact on the Italian economy and Expo’s next edition in Dubai.
Staying in Europe, we investigate how wealthy non-EU citizens (including a growing number from the Middle East) are investing in property in European countries such as Spain, Portugal and Malta in exchange for residency permits to fast-track visa-free travel within Europe while aiding struggling economies.
For our lovers of luxury design, we interview Fawaz Gruosi, the designer and founder of de Grisogono Jewellery and the “creator” of the black diamond.
