Why invest in Manchester?

Manchester is growing and developing at a substantial rate and 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 5 years with a GVA growth of 16.4% according to Oxford Economics. Rental rates in Manchester are also forecasted to increase on average by 2.9% over the next five years according to JLL.

MediaCityUK is home to world-class studio facilities making television, radio and digital productions that are broadcast around the world. Many media professionals working here also live beside the tranquil Salford Quays. Manchester’s business district Spinningfields is home to several of The Times’s Top 100 Graduate Employers.
