More About This Title Investors' Guide to the United Kingdom 2015/16


This new, fully updated 8th 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.
