For many people the first thought, when they think of Monaco is that it's a place with the richest population and no tax.
But Monaco is much more than that, we can ensure.
One of the best reasons to move to Monaco is, that it is one of the most saftest places in the world!
It is liberating to live in a country, that has a close to zero crime as possible. There are police officers everywhere, and many are civilian.
