The UK remains open for business and London is the premiere place where most International companies are based. London offers the best opportunities for your overseas business. UKEC can help you make the most of them.

Why Choose London?

London is a world-leader in the creative economy with concentrated clusters of creativity supported by some of the world’s best talent. The city is also the powerhouse of the UK’s domestic creative sector, with one in three of the country’s creative jobs based here. By moving to London you could benefit from:

A global hub of trained creative minds: Nearly 400,000 people work in London’s creative industries. And since the economic downturn, the city’s talent pool has deepened, stepping up available skills

A rich consumer base: With a population of over 8 million people, London is home to Europe’s largest and wealthiest consumer base. By 2025, London will be the fourth richest city in the world. London is also the gateway to the European Union’s 27 member states, the world’s biggest single market, with a population of 500 million

Intellectual property protection: London is one of the best places in the world in which to protect your intellectual property.

By setting up in London, you’ll have access to a growing market, a skilled workforce and London & Partners’ excellent industry contacts.

Locating Your Global Headquarters in London

London is the leading location for European headquarters, its unrivalled access to markets; talent and cultural diversity give it a clear edge against competing cities. By locating your International headquarters in London, you’ll have access to a wide range of benefits:

Welcoming and flexible commercial environment: London is the easiest place in Europe to do business and there are fewer restrictions on commerce in the UK than in any other European country. In these volatile times, international companies need the freedom to upskill and downskill with relative ease. London, in stark contrast to many other European cities, enables your business to do just that

Europe’s best city for breadth and depth of skills: London was voted Europe’s top city for qualified staff in 2009. London has the appropriate professional service clusters to ensure your business can access the specific skills you need for a European HQ, such as management, finance, marketing and administration. In London you’ll find some of the world’s most experienced people.
