Inward Investment News
28 Jul 2015
Since April we have received a number of large enquiries from the financial and professional services (FPS) sector.
In the current inward investment pipeline the FPS sector has generated the greatest number of enquiries, accounting for a quarter of all active projects. Demonstrating the City Region’s leading reputation in the area and a direct result of the focused and strategic sector approach taken by the international team.
The source location for the majority of the City Region’s inward investment projects is the UK, this can be attributed to focus of international firms, particularly within the FPS industry on finding a low cost base of operations without compromising on the available talent pool. The USA is the second most common source of enquiries, with 18 projects added into the pipeline in the last 12 months coming from the market.
