5 Reasons for Chinese Investors to Invest in the United Kingdom
For Chinese investors, the United Kingdom can be one of the most promising offshore investment locations this year. Here’s why.
• Open Economy
The British economy is widely regarded as one of the most open economies in the world, as well as one of the most inviting with foreign investors. Chinese investors who invest in Britain deal directly with banks, not having to go through the government.
• Sound Legal System
Britain has long been attractive for foreign investors because of its comprehensive legal system, which is protective with investors’ money. Disputes are promptly solved because the authorities are prepared to deal with them.
• London Is an Ideal Base for European Operations
Chinese investors planning to diversify their portfolios by investing in Europe can hardly find a better base for establishing their first European investments than London. The city is one of the world’s financial centres, and offers all that investors can possibly need, including some of the best financial experts in the world.
• Excellent Luxury Property Market
London is famed for its ultra-central luxury properties, which are some of the most expensive in the world. These properties have attracted some Chinese investors already, and are likely to continue to attract more in the years to come. And since these properties have excellent value, which is not likely to diminish, they are ideal for securing one’s wealth.
• Government Support
The British government doesn’t interfere in foreign investors’ operations in Britain, but it has often proved to be supportive with major investors who have brought in a lot of money in the country. Big-time investors interested in large-scale property or infrastructure investments in London or other major British cities can count on the government’s aid.
