Chinese acquisitions of UK businesses have increased 215 per cent since 2014, according to a new report.
Whilst US investors remain the largest source of international investment in UK businesses, a large proportion of the rise in investment has come from Chinese buyers. The steepest increase was seen following the June EU referendum vote, as buyers took advantage of the fall in the value of the pound, which has lowered the price of businesses and made them more attractive to buyers.
The largest growth was seen in the business services sector, following closely by the UK’s media and technology sector.
