Why invest in Manchester?

Manchester is growing and developing at a substantial rate. It has risen 26 places in this year’s Global Liveability Index, making it the top most liveable city in the UK and 28th across the globe.  In addition, Manchester is set to see the highest rate of economic growth of all major cities over the next five years with a GVA growth of 16.4% according to Oxford Economics. Rental rates in Manchester are also forecasted to increase by 2.9% over the next five years according to JLL.
