The UK Home Office has implemented a points-based system whereby high net worth individuals from outside the EU and Switzerland making a substantial financial investment in the UK may be considered for a Tier 1 Investor Visa. An application for an accelerated settlement can be made after 2 or 3 years, if the applicant has fulfilled certain requirements.
Investors from all over the world use this route for many different reasons: relocating and settling with their family, access to excellent private schools, a strong housing market, or just the cultural and business opportunities that the UK can offer.
Through our partners and associates we can offer a Tier 1 (Investor) Investment Management Service individually tailored to each client, fulfilling all the suitable criteria. Our team are experts in risk and investment management with years of experience behind them from Top Tier firms with strong links to London based immigration solicitors and accountants.
With our market expertise we can help navigate clients through the complicated application process all the way through to settlement in the UK, whilst ensuring investments are always compliant with the UK Home Office.
From our initial consultation we look to understand our clients’ circumstances and aspirations before tailoring a portfolio to meet their specific objectives and risk profile, with the aim to keep downside risk to a minimum whilst ensuring the portfolio remains within the permitted criteria.
Not only will we provide clients with a suitable portfolio that complies with their Tier 1 (Investor) Visa criteria, but we aim to add value with well-researched investment opportunities. We offer a transparent fee structure with no hidden charges or extra costs.
Please note that the Tier 1 Visa investment criteria is subject to change and we advise clients to use this link enclosed for the latest requirements and to consult with their immigration solicitor.
