2. INVESTMENT INDICATORS

Inward Investment Report 2012/13

Global FDI market declines in 2012

The United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) reported that global foreign direct investment (FDI) flows declined by 18% in 2012 to US$1.35 trillion. The USA, experienced a 26% year-on-year decline in FDI inflows in 2012, while the European Union reported an even steeper decline of 42% (with France falling by 35% and Germany declining by 87%.).

UK attracts increased FDI flows

In marked contrast to global trends, the UK secured an annual increase of 22% in FDI inflows in 2012, attracting US$62 billion, the highest level in Europe. Indeed, the UK’s share of global FDI flows rose to 4.6%, up significantly from 3.1% in 2011.

Value of UK’s inward FDI stock increases

The flow of FDI has increased the value of the stock of foreign held capital in the UK. The Office for National Statistics (ONS) reported the value of the UK’s inward FDI stock reaching £766 billion at the end of 2011, up by 5% on the previous year. UNCTAD’s latest data for 2012 shows the value of the UK’s inward FDI stock has continued to grow, increasing by 11.5% to reach an estimated £867 billion (US$1.3 trillion).

The UK’s inward FDI stock has also increased steadily, when measured as a percentage of GDP, reaching 54% at the end of 2012. France, Germany and the USA reported 41%, 21% and 25% respectively.

UK inward FDI stock comprises a broad portfolio of sectors. Foreign owned companies in financial services hold the largest stock of foreign capital (with 23% of the total). Other sectors with a large presence of foreign capital are ICT and pharmaceuticals, which accounts for 14% of the total stock of foreign capital.

Developed countries remain the major source of UK inward FDI stock.

The USA remains the leading source of inward FDI stock in the UK, with American firms holding 25% of the UK’s total stock, representing over £200 billion of UK-based investments. The next three largest markets combined (the Netherlands, France and Germany) account for a further 30% of the UK’s total stock of FDI. While these traditional markets currently dominate the constitution of UK inward FDI stock, UKTI’s strategy is looking to the long-term by also targeting the fast-growing investment flows from emerging markets such as China, India and Brazil.

UK inward investment

The UK achieved excellent FDI results in 2012/13 with significant increases in both the number of investment projects secured and the number of jobs created and safeguarded. UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) recorded a total of 1,559 FDI projects won for the UK, up by almost 11% year-on-year, and the strongest result in three years. UKTI played an active role in securing 1,322 projects, almost 85% of the national total. Over 170,000 jobs were either created or safeguarded during the year by international companies in the UK, with the number of new jobs increasing by 12% on the previous year to reach almost 60,000.Project numbers increase across the UK driven by record level of expansions. All regions of the UK attracted higher numbers of investment projects in 2012/13 than in the previous year. Wales and Northern Ireland, in particular, achieved significant year-on-year increases in project numbers, up by 191% and 41% respectively. Scotland reported record numbers of FDI projects, while London and the English regions also continued to attract growing levels of international investment. Analysis by project type shows that the number of new investments continued to increase, accounting for half of all projects. Significantly, the number of expansion projects increased by 14% year-on-year to 577 – the highest ever recorded – confirming the long-term commercial value that existing investors in particular put on the UK’s strong skills base, open business environment and advanced research infrastructure.
