Home to one of the world's leading financial markets, the United Kingdom is a hub for innovation and advantageous regulatory change. Its strong economy and ease of doing business are known around the world and have succeeded in attracting investors from far and wide.
In the United Kingdom, there are few restrictions to starting new operations compared to other developed countries in the East and West. It's one of the easiest and fastest locations to set up and run a business. In fact, the World Bank found that it takes only 13 days to set up in the UK, compared to the European average of 32. This, coupled with its flexible labor market—which earned it the title of second best place in Europe to employ workers—make the UK an excellent place to do business.
Not only does the United Kingdom present domestic investment opportunities, but investments across borders are easily facilitated. As a magnet for foreign investment, the UK is home to Europe's number one city for doing business and the world's leading financial services center. When the country's booming economy and incredibly high growth rates are taken into account, the United Kingdom is undoubtedly an unsurpassed business locale.
We opened our London office in 2011 and have since grown to more than 60 employees dedicated solely to our UK clients. We pride ourselves on our talent pools, which include leaders across asset classes. They not only understand the complexities of their sectors of expertise but are able to leverage this knowledge to provide increasingly valuable services to our clients.
In addition to our team of experts, we work closely with our extensive network of lawyers, bankers, accountants and tax advisors local to London to go beyond the basic level of serving clients. We take a proactive approach to solving their problems and play an active role in assisting them in achieving success. We serve as a facilitator with deep levels of involvement with our clients, making Alter Domus UK more of partner than a service provider.
Rather than sticking to what we’ve done in the past, we continuously expand our capabilities to meet our clients’ needs. We even work closely with industry bodies to help influence and shape the way work is conducted moving forward. We strive to predict the impact of changes rather than waiting for them to happen, which is a testament to our pragmatic and forward-thinking approach to client engagement.
