Capital investment

Birmingham has undergone a huge physical transformation since the publication of the Big City Plan in 2010.

The pace of this change will, if anything, increase as the government commits to building the £50bn High Speed Two project and the city council brings forward sizeable regeneration sites such as the 141 hectare Curzon site, the 14 hectare Birmingham Smithfield scheme and the Greater Ickneild Masterplan.

Business Birmingham has dedicated resource to assist overseas investors looking to invest in residential, commercial and industrial development opportunities in the city. We can help match funders and financial backers to local and regional developers to bring forward sites and schemes that contribute to the city’s commercial space offer and housing requirements.

Though there is a strong residential development pipeline completing in Birmingham over the next three years, the city needs to build 51,000 new homes between now and 2031 as set out in the Birmingham City Council statutory development plan, and we are keen to help those looking to develop new residential sites in the city.

As the city’s investment and ownership base diversifies we are seeing increasing amounts of global capital commit to the city’s long term vision and we remain one of the most open and transparent cities in the UK in which to commit long term capital in property, assets and strategic land. Our teams have experience with working with investors from North America, Gulf region, China, Hong Kong and South East Asian investors.

Capital attraction services are unique to the investment circumstances but some of the services we can help with are;

• Economic case buildings and city direction overview
• Market entry strategy
• Area and site knowledge
• Developer introductions
• Advisory team selection
• Capacity building through recruitment
• PR, Marketing and brand raising.
