Connecting Asian Investors to the UK

When preparing to invest via the residency and citizenship programmes, it is vital to consider what different types of businesses you can invest in, the stage the business is in, how much you want to be involved and what are your expectations from your investment.

If these factors are not considered carefully, you could make mistakes that can be harmful to your long term plan. All investments involve varying degrees of risk of loss and there is no guarantee that the capital you invested will be repaid or provide a return on investment. Here are a few matters to consider:

  • You should be financially prepared to make the investment
  • You should have a back up plan for unexpected expenditure and if the investment fails
  • You shouldn’t take on debt to make the investment, it should be from your disposable income
  • You should be well versed of the nuances of the sector you are investing in
  • You should consider the financial resources for your daily living expenses in the UK
  • You will need to consider how you will handle your affairs in your country of origin
  • You must read all the paperwork, documents and contracts carefully
  • You should check the debt status of the business you are investing in
  • You should take early tax advice.
Remember, past performance is not a guarantee of future performance.
