GLASGOWCITY REGION–YOUR BUSINESSISHERE


Aspowerhouse of theScottish economy, Glasgow is the business, cultural, sport- ing and academic heart of Scotland and oneofEurope’smostvibrantandcosmo- politancities. Top businesses choose Glasgow for many


reasons,most notably: the strength and depth of a flexible and highly qualified workforce, a competitive business environment, an excel- lent work-life balance, cost-effective top grade office space and one of the most progressive digital infrastructure environments in Europe. Glasgow regularly reports as second only


to London amongst the UK’s largest cities for the share of the working age population hav- ing achievedgraduatelevel qualifications. That strength also stands up to international com- parison with Glasgow ranking in the top 15% of European regions. Glasgow is naturally collaborative with a


young, growing and educated population, boasting four world-leading universities, six modern high-performing colleges and two world top-ten institutions. With more than 185,000 students from 140 countries, Glasgow’s metropolitan regionhas the second largest student population in theUKandmore international students studying in competitive universities than almost any medium-sized city in the world. The city is good at retaining its graduates


once they have completed their degrees through a combination of high disposable income and the UK’s most affordable major


housing market. Together the city’s universi- ties and colleges are producing one of the UK’s healthiest supplies of graduates in financial and business disciplines, in life sci- ences and in engineering, design and advanced manufacturing. That explains why Glasgow is consistently


ranked in the top 100 most innovative cities in the world and why alongside a large financial services industry for a city of its scale, Glasgow has an expanding role in some of the indus- tries shaping the new industrial revolution. Quantum engineering, low carbon industries including CleanTech, space communications, FinTech and precision medicine are just a handful of the sectors where you will find the very best of academic research talent working alongside a fast-growing community of inno- vative technology companies. The evidence has been plentiful of invest-


ments consolidating the diversification of Glasgow’s economy. The University of Strathclyde launched the Glasgow City Innovation District surrounding its city centre campus with a plan to double the existing Technology Innovation Centre zone. M Squared Lasers opened its new quantum research facility developing equipment such as the UK’s very first commercial quantum gravimeters and accelerometers. Work also began on the £39m Advanced


Manufacturing Innovation District Scotland next to Glasgow Airport which will include the National Manufacturing Institute


District, the physical evidence is emerging of investment decisions made by Virgin Money (Clydesdale Bank), Barclays, JPMorgan and HMRC who are all heavily invested in the city and continue to build the scale of the city’s financial and business services sector. The city has also set out recommendations for bold investments in the city’s transport infrastruc- ture and the very first phase of a new Glasgow Metro linking Glasgow Airport to the rail net- work was confirmed. ScottishPower also committed to a bold


plan to help Glasgow achieve its ambitions to become the UK’s first net zero carbon city by 2030. Nothing could be more relevant to Glasgow’s engineering heritage than finding technological solutions to climate change and with the city due to host the United Nations ClimateChangeSummit (COP26) in2021, that will supercharge the business community’s enthusiasmfor finding solutions, emphasising Glasgow’sownrole in tackling the issue. COP26 also becomes the latest example


of legacy from the investment made in the city’s conferences and events infrastructure for the2014CommonwealthGames. Glasgow being announced as the world’s leading events and festivals destination at the World Travel Awards is just one accolade the city received in 2019 and helps explain the growth in the city’s tourism economy. As preferred destination for an ever


increasing number of FTSE 100 and AIM listed companies, it is widely acknowledged that Glasgow represents a mature global invest- ment proposition for corporate and real estate investment.
