Why invest in Edinburgh?

According to Savills' 2016 Spotlight on UK Student Housing, Edinburgh is in the top 10 (out of 84) most attractive cities/towns in the UK for development (and therefore investment) oppportunities

Edinburgh is one of the fastest growing and most productive cities in the UK. Its highly skilled workforce, competitive costs and unrivalled quality of life make the city extremely popular with international investors.

Edinburgh is the UKs most educated city - it has 4 Universities and over 50% of the workforce possesses a university degree. Many global financial services businesses base their Headquarters in Edinburgh and the city’s technology industry is rapidly growing. It was even named the best place in the UK to live in 2015 by comparison website, uSwitch.

Rents in Edinburgh are climbing too, due to the huge demand from students and professionals wanting to live in the city. The average rent in Edinburgh now stands at £951, a figure which has risen by 25.3% in the last 5 years, and rents still continue to climb as demand far outstrips supply.
