INVESTMENT KEY AREAS

BIRMINGHAM

The UK’s second city ranks as one of the most popular in Europe in which to invest – higher than London – and is currently attracting £billions of investment into citywide retail, commercial and residential space, and infrastructure projects.

Using a strategy of targeting key areas for investment, Birmingham has developed the largest professional services hub outside of London, demanding the attention of both domestic and foreign investors that are looking to expand and take advantage of a much wider client base.

 

As such, demand for city-centre living is high and house prices in Birmingham are increasing faster than any other English city.
