A new study indicates that despite concerns surrounding Brexit, American investors are confident in UK-based investing.
The survey spanned 68 large-capitalisation companies across the Atlantic that currently employ over 275,000 people here in the UK. The figures found that the enterprises overall had exceptionally high confidence in the United Kingdom as a place to conduct business. Close to one third of firms surveyed were rated as having the highest level of confidence possible, and 60 per cent of respondents stated they would definitely increase their UK investments.
Enterprises and individuals alike seeking investment advice in Chester, London and other cities can rely on wealth managers for unbiased guidance on assets both at home and abroad.
The companies involved in the research study spanned a wide range of different sectors, including, but not limited to, telecommunications, media, technology, manufacturing and financial services (FS). Two prominent firms taking part in the survey were international FS giant American Express and professional services group Marsh McLennan.
According to Eminetra, Dan Glazer, CEO and President of Marsh McLennan, commented:
“The UK is a large and dynamic economy with a good regulatory and education system. Top talents from all over the world want to work and live in the UK.”
It is worth noting, however, that approximately 40 per cent of US enterprises taking part stated they believed that if the UK wished to remain one of the leading destinations for American investment, improving both its economic and political affiliations with Europe was a top priority.
