Businesses Looking to Expand in Europe Choose London as First Destination

London continues to be a word leading business destination for international companies wishing to set up or expand their business. Last year, a Deloitte study revealed 60% of non-European companies chose London as the base for their headquarters, and 40% of the globe’s biggest companies chose London for their European headquarters over anywhere else on the continent., a specialist business registration service, is helping entrepreneurs and start-ups establish businesses in the capital as it continues to attract foreign investment.

The figures from the Deloitte study follow on from IBM’s 2010 Global Location Trend report, which identified London as the top ranking business city destination for a number of global investment projects.

London’s dominance of the global business market can be attributed to its access to finance, its entrance to different markets and customers, a world renowned top talent pool and a reduction of operating risks.
