Liverpool is at the centre of the UKs second largest regional economy with immediate access to seven million customers, an economy worth over £121 billion and 252,000 businesses.
Liverpool and the surrounding region is the number one recipient of foreign direct investment in the UK after London and the southeast.
3,000 companies have chosen the area as their base of operations, compelling evidence of the region’s business environment and the commercial opportunities.
Liverpool is an important gateway for trade within UK and global markets.
Its connectivity, including two international airports within 60 minutes of the city centre, extensive road and rail infrastructure and the largest Freeport Zone in the UK means companies reach their customers quickly and move goods efficiently.
Businesses in Liverpool have access to a large, skilled, and cost effective labour pool that meets the needs of any investor, with 50,000 students and a workforce of nearly one million people in the city region.
Liverpool has world class capabilities in life sciences, low carbon technology, financial and professional services, outsourcing, and digital and creative sectors. These knowledge sectors are bolstered by the international research and facilities of the city’s three universities and the talented graduates they produce.
Home to a wide range of commercial property solutions, from prestigious Grade A office locations to large industrial premises, the city can accommodate anything from a small sales office to company headquarters, all benefitting from next generation broadband infrastructure and extensive transport links. Despite this, Liverpool property prices are the most competitive in the UK with prime office rental prices at about a quarter of London.
