Investment Solution for High Net Worth Migrant

The United Kingdom has a very generous Tier 1 visa program for such individuals. If you are a high net worth individual, we can help you get a Tier 1 visa.
We have forged partnerships with seasoned UK immigration lawyers that understand the eligibility criteria and application process.

Eligibility Criteria to Secure a Tier 1 Visa

Our legal partners can provide more details on the eligibility process. However, here are some requirements to be aware of:

  • You must live outside the EEA - European Economic Area, and Switzerland.
  • You must have at least £2 million to invest in the UK.
  • A bank account in the UK is required.
  • You must apply within three months of your trip.
As long as you meet these requirements, you are likely eligible.

Qualifying for Permanent Residency With a Tier 1 Visa

The Tier 1 (investor) category of visa is high-value migrants who would like to invest a minimum of £2 million in the UK. The fund must be invested in gilts or UK registered trading companies; however, many consider the return on gilts unattractive and investing in unquoted shares can be unpredictable, and that where we can help make a difference. We advise on investment solutions that target but growth and capital preservation.

You are eligible to apply for the Investor- Tier1 Visa if you meet a number of criteria and comply with the minimum threshold and investment criteria. It takes 3 years to qualify for permanent residence in the United Kingdom ( England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland ) if you invest £5 million and you can become eligible for indefinite leave to remain after 2 years in U.K. if you invest £10 million.

Here are the timetables for securing permanent residency:

  • If you invest over £2 million, you will be eligible for permanent residency after five years in the United Kingdom.
  • If you invest over £5 million, you will be eligible for permanent residency after three years in the United Kingdom.
  • If you invest over £10 million, you will be eligible for permanent residency after two years in the United Kingdom.

After meeting Tier 1 eligibility status, you may be eligible for permanent residency in the UK. The period before you are eligible for permanent residency status depends on the initial investment. We can help you choose a portfolio to help you get
permanent residency.

Regardless of the value of your portfolio, we will help you meet your goals.

Comprehensive Investment Management Services for Tier 1 applicants

We work closely with our trusted colleagues at one of the UK’s leading immigration legal firms. Our goal is to develop a comprehensive service package for all migrants seeking a Tier 1 visa.

To qualify, you must be an immigrant with a high net worth. You must also commit to Investing at least £2 million in the United Kingdom. You must either invest in gilts or UK registered companies. Of course, you don’t want to make unprofitable Investments just to secure a visa. Most Tier 1 visa applicants aren’t interested in gilts. The average yield on 15-year gilts has been below 2% for the past four years. They are unlikely to be a promising investment for the for seeable future.
