Invest in the UK

With a $2.83 trillion GDP, the UK is the fifth-largest economy in the world.

Foreign direct investment is a £55 billion annual source of capital for UK enterprises. There is an authentic appreciation among British companies of the value and benefits of working with foreign investors.

A number of well-established routes for inward investment exist for investors, including regional, sector and property specific initiatives, with incentives available for investors involved with government capital investment initiatives and infrastructure projects.

UK investment market outlook

While post-Brexit referendum uncertainty has hit UK investor confidence and investment performance, the fundamentals of the global economy remain positive, and the case for Britain retaining its position as an FDI destination is compelling. 

Following a strong election result and a convincing majority for the Conservative Government, uncertainty may no longer be an issue for the UK economy. 

As the post-Brexit UK trade, tax and regulatory scenario unfolds, Boris Johnson’s bullish leadership style and unwavering confidence may see the country emerge with redefined global relationships.

Investing in the UK can also open up immigration benefits to investors and their families. Non-EU citizens who make a qualifying investment can become eligible for UK residency and fast-tracked British citizenship in a country offering exceptional education and quality of life.

UK residency through investment

The Tier 1 Investor visa is open exclusively to nationals of non-EEA countries investing £2 million or more in investments that meet UK government requirements.

Qualifying investments include UK share capital or loan capital in active and trading UK registered companies.

Once in the UK with an investor visa, you and your family are free to work, study or engage in business activities here.

You can also become eligible to naturalise as a British citizen in a shorter qualifying period than under other immigration routes.
