While most businesses have shrunk during the COVID-19 pandemic, the InvestUK Group has seen an impressive jump in inward investment appetite for the UK. Since it started operations in 2013, our group has completed 280 transactions with a direct investment value of £110m, creating 2,650 new UK jobs and 2020 is proving to be a record year. This covers a mix of investment strategies, many connected to clients seeking to qualify for residency in the United Kingdom. We are successfully leveraging the stability, prosperity, and international brand recognition of the UK to attract Foreign Direct Investment.
Rupert Gather, Founder and Executive Chairman, remarks that “it seems the increasing interest in the UK is a result of global uncertainty caused by Covid-19 pandemic and the UK’s new independent position as it exits the European Union.
Clients are particularly interested in the new Innovator Visa and the InvestUK Group has helped 80 innovators qualify since the launch of programme in 2019, by ensuring their business idea, structure and investment strategy meet stringent Government requirements of innovation, viability and scalability”.
To meet the increasing demand for its services, the InvestUK Group is opening international representative offices in Dubai and Lagos to complement its presence in London, Hong Kong and Beijing.. These offices will serve to improve client management and to release its full potential as a global platform for advisory and subscription-based investment management services in UK.
