This new, fully updated 7th edition of Investors’ Guide to the United Kingdom provides an authoritative and essential
guide to the current investment climate in the United
Kingdom. This includes the principal sectors of opportunity
for foreign investors, the grants and incentives available, the financial sector and the laws and business regulations that
affect foreign investors.
In its World Investment Report 2013, the United Nations
Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) reconfirmed
the UK as the largest recipient of foreign direct investment
stock in Europe. The Ernst & Young European Attractiveness
Survey 2014 found that the UK is the most attractive location
for investors in Europe and ranks fifth globally after China, the US, India and Brazil in foreign investors’ expectations over the next three years. This reflects its enterprise culture, businessfriendly
employment laws, world-class support services and relatively benign fiscal policies.
Aimed at foreign businesses of all sizes, from multinationals
to SMEs as well as Sovereign Wealth Funds, this unique
guide offers in-depth briefings on the technical aspects of investment as well as business start-up.
This edition features investment opportunities in energy
and regeneration which are of interest to primary asset fund
managers as well as other key business sectors.
Investors’ Guide to the United Kingdom is published in association with UK Trade & Investment. Includes a Foreword
from Michael Boyd, Managing Director Investment, UK Trade & Investment.
