No, there’s no minimum equity requirement on our RIO products, this is due to the capital being repaid when a life event occurs.

Each applicant is assessed independently for our RIO range to make sure they can afford the monthly interest payments on their own. Please note that we do not accept earned income on RIO cases.

You can find an AIP form on our ‘Downloads‘ section. Please complete the editable PDF and email it to intermediaries@themarsden.co.uk. The team will then assess it and contact you with the outcome. Please check our ‘Service standards’ page to see our current AIP turnaround times.
