Key reasons to select Birmingham
1) PROPERTY INVESTMENT
Birmingham is an attractive residential property investment location — it is the UK’s second largest conurbation after London. In 2015 Birmingham was named the most investable city in the UK for a second year running named above the likes of Milan, London and Paris in an annual survey of European investors’ intentions, which named it the sixth best place to invest money on the continent.

2) JEWELLERY QUARTER
Dating back more than 250 years, it is still home to more than 500 jewellery businesses and is the city’s most successful regeneration area.
3) HS2 (High Speed 2)
Birmingham will be a mere 49 minutes or so from the UK’s capital; the new railway service will put Birmingham within London’s commuter belt. HS2 will play a vital role in boosting jobs, skills, growth and regeneration. HS2 Ltd’s headquarters in Birmingham is the heart of HS2.
Birmingham’s numbers are set to grow by 8% over the next 6 years, creating an increased demand for new homes.
5) BIG CITY PLAN
The plan identifies five key areas of development worth £10 billion. It demonstrates how the city’s population will grow providing more than 5,000 new homes and 50,000 new jobs.
6) CITY SUPPORT
The Greater Birmingham area welcomed more foreign investment than any other local enterprise partnership zone in the country. Incoming firms have cited transport links, affordable space and a strong talent pool as major draws.
The city’s 5 universities and 4 major colleges provide a world class learning environment supporting over 73,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students.
