Investec private bank offers a range of mortgage solutions for high-net-worth individuals.  We recognise that you may have a complex income profile, but want to leverage your wealth to buy a property. As our team creates bespoke mortgages and can consider elements of discretionary, deferred and foreign currency income, as well as dividends and stocks, we may be able to provide a higher loan-to-value than you think. We recently enabled a law firm Partner to buy a new home with a 95% LTV loan.   

The borrower

Our client was looking to purchase a turn-key Grade II listed property in south-west London to use as his main residence.

The problem

The client was looking to purchase their first property in the UK. Their wealth and investments were held offshore, and they did not wish to remit these to the UK. Furthermore, the client intended on using an unsecured credit line for the house deposit. The client received basic salary in US dollars (USD). However, their bonus awards varied significantly and could not be evidenced as income.

The solution

Investec was able to consider the client's foreign currency income and make appropriate adjustments for USD currency volatility. We were able to offer an initial LTV of 95%, which would amortize over a relatively short term of 15 years. The mortgage was provided on a capital and interest basis.
