Thanks for the reply. For the sum of 2m invested, they can also be invested with an investment manager for 3mths to form the basis for an application. Am thinking thats a better route than having the funds sit for mths without much interest in an account. Has anyone went down this route before?
Has anyone applied for the visa directly without using the services of a law firm? Am thinking of applying it myself without using a lawyer. If home office requires more information, do you need to pay again to resubmit?
Has anyone applied for the Visa without using the services of a solicitor? Can this be easily done? I think I have a relatively straight forward application without any dependents. Some firm charge 10k for an initial application which seems really high for a simple online form.
Just starting to research on this now. Any recommendations on investment managers? Most investment managers charge 1% which is a little on the high side if I want to hold a passive portfolio of gilts and corporate bonds.
