London & Capital launches three new investor visa services

RELATED TOPICS​

London-based wealth manager London & Capital has launched three new services from its International Wealth & Immigration Division – the Passive Investor Visa, Active Investor Visa and Comprehensive Family Office service.

All three are available now and have been created to facilitate the changing and growing demands from international clients.
 
Appetite for Investor Visas is on the rise, with a reported 700 cases last year, 30% higher than the previous year. The Investor Visas allow international investors to attain permanent residency in the UK through the scheme. London & Capital has become specialists within the field of managing international clients on these Visas, noticing the different types of services these clients require.
 
The Passive Investor Visa carries a charge of just 0.75% per annum, and offers a minimum level of transactional service, ideally suited to those who require the Visa alongside a quick and convenient service, but are not interested in active investment management.  The product is invested in UK Gilts only, offering a low risk safe haven for clients’ funds for the duration of the term. Clients receive quarterly statements of their investment that can be provided to the Home Office.
 
The Active Investor Visa service has been created to service London & Capital’s clients who require an active mandate, and regular interaction with their investment manager including statements, phone calls and annual face to face meetings.  The portfolio is invested in UK Bonds and Equities, and is ideally suited for high net worth clients who want some control of their investment portfolio.  The Active Investor Visa service carries an annual fee of 1%.
 
The Comprehensive Family Office Service is a fully managed service with introductions to legal, tax, property, insurance, concierge and other related services.  It is ideally suited for families who require full support for their transition to living and working in the UK from abroad and expertise in managing their overseas investment portfolios (which are both UK and global stocks).  This support carries a fee of 1.25% per annum.  The Comprehensive Family Office service is ideal for high net worth individuals and families, who will have access to unlimited meetings and phone calls with their investment manager.
 
Mark Estcourt, Executive director and founder of the International Wealth and Immigration Division at London & Capital, sats: “We’re seeing an increase in demand from international clients looking to attain permanent residency through the Investor Visa scheme, but not all require the same level of attention. Some may just require the Investor Visa transactional services in place, whereas others require full relocation services to the UK. Each client has unique circumstances so we have developed our services to tailor to the different needs, making it clearer for both clients and immigration professionals we work so closely with. This is a particular specialism for London & Capital and we’re proud to be able to deliver these new tailored services to our clients and prospective clients around the world.”
 
The International Wealth and Immigration Division was set up by Estcourt in 2012, providing strategic wealth planning for international clients and their families, in addition to the Visa services.
