Tier 1 Immigration Visa's Are Now Innovator Visa's

Bringing together foreign investors and UK investment opportunities

Established in 2016, Funding Nav is a market-leading investment firm facilitating foreign direct investment (‘FDI’) into the UK enterprise economy.

We act on behalf of international private clients and their families to source, qualify and manage tailored private equity investments directly into unlisted UK companies. 

We are closely aligned with UK Government policy on inward investment and the Innovator Visa Programme which replaced the Tier 1 visa programme in April 2019. We recognise that this flow of investment provides growth capital to back inspiring entrepreneurs and invigorate small UK companies raising finance to expand, create jobs and sustain communities. It also provides a flow of diverse cultural and professional skills from all over the world into the UK.


If you are an investor, we can introduce you to a wide range of projects with the potential to deliver excellent returns. Because all our investments are Tier 1 qualifying they also provide a route to UK residency. If you are a UK business looking for investment, we can help you secure the financial backing you need to fund expansion and realise potential.


The UK Government recognises the value that foreign intellectual and financial capital can bring to the economy, and offers two different visa programmes to help investors move to the UK.

The Innovator Visa

This programme is suitable if you have £50,000 minimum but more realistically c£200,000  available to invest in the UK and are willing to work in innovation.

The Investor Visa


This programme is suitable if you have £2m under your control in a UK regulated bank. There is no need for you to work in a UK entity.

Please contact us to arrange a meeting whether you are an investor or an enterprise seeking investment.
