London+ FDI Report
London leads the way for FDI in the UK and Europe. Between 2003-2015 London secured 39 per cent of all UK projects and 26 per cent of all jobs in the UK. Top UK areas for investment also include Scotland and England’s South East and North West. This piece of research aims to understand the economic contribution made by foreign companies investing in London first and then expanding to other parts of the UK.
