Tier 1 (Investor) Visa Investment

The Tier 1 (Investor) Visa requires the applicant to have substantial disposable investment funds but has no set English language requirement.

Applicants for this visa will “not” be required to attend an interview with the Clearing Officer.

Two discretionary portfolios will be available for clients on this programme:

  • Fixed Income only: 95% 5% Cash
  • Balanced: 47.5% Fixed Income 47.5% Equity 5% Cash


100% of the investment (GBP 2 to 10 million as required by The Tier 1 (Investor) Visa rules) must be placed in UK Gilts, corporate bonds or UK registered companies issued equities
