London to maintain position as top investment location post pandemic

by LLB Editor

London’s overall attractiveness as a top investment destination has remained undiminished, with the first major poll of global investors since the start of the COVID-19 crisis showing that 99% are still keen to invest in the city, with 79% currently actively doing so.

The poll shows London faring consistently better than other comparable locations across a key range of metrics including access to global talent and quality of life, despite the broader economic and public health crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The poll, conducted by FTI Consulting for the City of London Corporation as part of a global investor intentions survey, engaged with 506 leading investors with assets under management of $1 trillion and was undertaken on 5-10 July.

London also scored highly among the world’s most prominent investors in terms of global connectivity, attractiveness as a hub for business and environmental, sustainability and governance issues.

However, investors also showed a clear desire, with 72% of respondents agreeing, to see the development of a pandemic recurrence prevention plan which would encourage them to look more favourably upon the city when it comes to investment decisions.
