Liverpool’s economy is the fastest growing outside of London generating £17 billion per year. It’s one of the North West’s core cities and principal regional economic drivers. It has a population of over 465,000 people (the 4th largest population in the UK) and is a major employment centre, with 13,500 businesses and some 186,000 jobs.
The strength of Liverpool’s economy is evidenced by the calibre of companies it attracts. Sony, Jaguar Land Rover and Grosvenor are all major investors in Liverpool.
Network Rail and Liverpool City Region are investing £340 million in the Liverpool City Region rail network to deliver more efficient and reliable railways by 2019.
The new direct flight from the North-west to China on Hainan Airlines will facilitate smoother visitor entry. It is expected to generate an estimated economic boost of £250m, greatly benefitting Liverpool in terms of productivity gains for businesses, trade stimulation and inward investments.
Vast regeneration schemes, which have dominated the city, have encouraged an abundance of young professionals, wanting to live in the cultural city. Liverpool has therefore seen a huge supply/demand imbalance, with less than two thirds of the homes in the region actually being built. This has therefore seen a knock on effect on rental income, with landlords generating all-time high yields.
The National Housing Federation also forecast private rental costs in Liverpool to rise, with growth forecast to reach as high as 22% by 2021. The two biggest developments have gone on to become the two most popular tourist attractions and features of the city: The Albert Dock and Liverpool one.
Liverpool2, uk’s most central deep water terminal located at the Port of Liverpool, will allow global services to connect with Liverpool by enlarging the current capacity. The £500m investment will add £5 billion gross value to the local economy and create over 5000 jobs.
Liverpool is the uk’s second city for wealth management and a leading European centre for pharmaceuticals and bio-sciences with world-class research institutions and leading international companies Novartis and Eli Lilly, Unilever and Bristol Myers Squibb based in the city region.
Liverpool currently boasts one of the highest average rental yields within the UK, with yields of up to 7-8%, outperforming the average found in London at 4.86%.
The University of Liverpool, Liverpool John Moores University and Liverpool Hope University have over 70,000 students between them. Liverpool has one of the highest student retention rates in the UK, with six out of ten students staying in employment in the city, which boosts rental demand in the city even further.
