Liverpool has the UK’s second largest regional economy, worth more than £149 billion. Due to an influx of new businesses and a thriving tourism sector, the economy is growing by an impressive 15% year-on-year.
The city is being transformed through major development projects such as Liverpool Waters – a £5.5BN initiative to transform derelict docks into a sprawling commercial and residential waterfront space – and Liverpool One – the nation’s largest open-air shopping centre.
Liverpool is a hotspot for both students and tourists, with a 90,000-strong student population and overseas visitors to Liverpool rising by a quarter from 2016 to 2017.
With a rapidly increasing population and the highest rental yields in the country for 2018, Liverpool is an appealing choice for private investors.
