The Northern Powerhouse initiative to increase investment in the North has propelled the UK to 9th on a new global investment index.

The Global Infrastructure Investment index released by Arcadis, a construction design and consultancy firm, has ranked the UK as the 9th most attractive nation for infrastructure investment and is among the highest risers in the index – up 4 places since 2012.


The report, which ranks 41 countries, assesses each country’s growth potential, levels of investment and the returns sought by investors to create a list of the most dynamic countries that offer the greatest potential for growth and investment in their economies.


According to the index, the higher ranking afforded to the UK is attributed to its ‘mature, stable, low risk business environment’, as also shown by its commitment to major infrastructure projects targeting a variety of sectors, such as transport and housing.


Government schemes such as the HS2 high speed rail link, designed to improve transport links between the Northern Regions and London, and Crossrail 2 which will create a new cross-city rail link between the South and North of London, are expected to create new opportunities for investors.


Moreover, the report highlights that efforts to promote growth and development in the North to re-balance the economy of the nation through the Northern Powerhouse initiative are playing a key role in attracting global investors as well as creating real estate and housing opportunities next to their development.
