|Britain has become a global hot investment destination!
According to the latest series of data and rankings released by EY, the world's leading accounting firm, Britain has not been shrouded by the suspect of leaving Europe, and global investors remain confident in the UK.
Ernst & Young released the global ranking report 10 years ago, and Britain surpassed the United States for the first time this year to top the list, breaking the record of the United States as the top ranker since 2014. It is worth mentioning that despite the trade war crisis, China still ranks in the top five of the list.
According to the report, Britain accounted for 10% of global mergers and acquisitions in 2018, with a total value of $400 billion, making it the best year since the 2008 financial crisis.
Britain's investment activity is very strong, not affected by the exit from Europe.
Attracting Global Institutional Investment Since Teresa May took office as British Prime Minister in 2016, a large number of high-quality assets have been bought by foreign investors, ranking first among all previous prime ministers.
According to economists, Britain received 197 billion pounds of foreign direct investment in 2016, the highest since 2005, just after Aunt May came to power.
In the two years of 2017 and 2018, the amount of investment continued to grow, and the amount of investment in 2018 was almost 2.5 times as much as that in 2016. Meanwhile, PricewaterhouseCoopers recently released the European Real Estate Trends Report 2019, which shows that from the fourth quarter of 2017 to the third quarter of 2018, institutional buyers from all over the world invested 68 billion euros in the British real estate market, ranking first.
If compared with European cities, London attracted 20 billion euros in investment, ranking first, while Paris and Berlin ranked second and third with 12 billion and 8 billion euros.
The preferred investment place for the wealthy According to the latest Forbes report, London has always been the top choice for ultra-high net worth people around the worlD.The report examines the current number of people with high net worth (net assets exceeding $10 million) and ultra-high net worth (net assets exceeding $30 million) in each city.
London, with a total of 4,944 wealthy people, ranks first in the world and has added 582 people in the past five years, making it the largest city in terms of new arrivals.
Bloomberg data also show that in the past year, the UK commercial real estate market attracted the most money for individual buyers to invest in commercial real estate, ranking first in terms of nearly $80 billion, followed by the United States, Germany and Australia.
For the first time in attracting institutional investment, Britain surpassed the United States in ranking and ranked first in the world.
In terms of personal wealth, London remains the world's most popular wealth centre for high net worth people.
As can be seen, leaving Europe did not deter investors.
Britain's own open attitude, coupled with the relatively undervalued asset prices in the past two years, attracted more investors from around the world.
