The ‘Great Recession’ was a dark time for many businesses around the United Kingdom, and Edinburgh too has had its fair share of hardship over the last few years. However, with the recovery now in full swing, Edinburgh is rapidly re-establishing itself as one of the UK’s leading business centres.
Outside of London, Edinburgh is the second most-popular business centre in the United Kingdom, rivalling Birmingham, Manchester and Liverpool as a locus for inward investment.
A Growing financial sector
Many people may not have seen it coming because it was subtle, stealth and clever, but Edinburgh has become perfectly placed to lead the financial world in terms of jobs and industry. Around 5% – or 97,000—jobs are held by the largest Scottish employers and are now worth more than £20 billion per year. The Scottish financial sector is one of the healthiest in Europe. They take advantage of the privatization process, and some of the major Scottish companies that deal in finance have their headquarters in Edinburgh. Alongside this fact, you can also add that the top three Scottish banks all print their own money.
