Investment Manager

Post by homer79 » Fri Aug 24, 2018 3:00 pm

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.

If anyone has a good experience with any firm who charges a reasonable rate, pls pm me :). Or has anyone handled the investment and portfolio statements on their own?

Application for Tier 1 Investor Visa

Post by homer79 » Mon Aug 27, 2018 2:57 pm

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.

Self Application for Tier 1 Visa

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?

If HO wants additional documents or information, they will probably write to you and ask for it.

Nothing extra to pay.

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?
