Global investment into the UK boosts job creation, capital investment, innovation and productivity, and the UK’s financial services sector attracts more than double the foreign direct investment than any other sector. Produced by fDi Intelligence, the report looks at the factors underpinning the UK’s success in attracting investment, and how the benefits in terms of jobs and capital, are spread throughout UK regions and cities, with almost half of jobs linked to inward investment created outside London. The report also highlights the importance of trade and investment links with the US, China, the EU and Switzerland.

London plays a key role in attracting investment from overseas, as the UK’s hub for financial and professional services. Across measures of competitiveness in global trade, investment and financial services capability, London ranks top compared with other cities. Through sharing and developing our financial services expertise, the UK can continue to build and strengthen trade and investment links across the world.
