Birmingham – Engine of the Midlands

Birmingham is not only the UK’s largest city outside London, but also one of the country’s biggest financial centres. The relocation of firms such as Deutsche Bank and HSBC will increase the number of affluent professionals making their home here. The diversity of the city’s £90bn economy is supported by its reputation as a hub for creative industry and thought of as one of UKs faster growing centres for digital media.


There is a wealth of opportunities for companies seeking to expand or invest in Birmingham. The city has exceptional connections to local, national and international destinations. It lies at the heart of the UK’s road network and boasts an international airport serving 9 million passengers per year to 140 direct and scheduled charter routes. The proposed HS2 rail link will  cut travel time between Birmingham and London to less than 50 minutes.


At the moment, Birmingham is going through a really exciting, really energetic renaissance.

Big Companies Relocate to City



A £600 million makeover of NewStreet Station was unveiled in September 2015, complete with the launch of Grand Central shopping mall, where John Lewis
is the anchor tenant. This is the third shopping destination in Birmingham’s portfolio, which includes The Mailbox, home to luxury brands such as Harvey Nichols, Armani and a Malmaison Hotel and The Bullring where high street favourites can be found, alongside the iconic department store Selfridges.


The HS2 rail network will bring the capital even closer at 49 minutes, and will welcome an estimated £1.5bn and 22,000 jobs to the region. Alongside this Birmingham International Airport sits just 5 miles south-east of the city centre with
a choice of over 400 direct or one-stop flights across the world.

Residential Market

Property prices in Birmingham have been rising well above the national average, hitting 7.3% year on year growth from January 17-18. This is just the beginning as prices in Birmingham are still recovering from the 2008 recession, meaning there is still a lot of potential growth to be had.

Richard Donnell, insight director at Hometrack said:

“The income to buy a home in regional cities is well below the London average so in the near term we expect to see rising house prices stimulating additional buying and market activity in those areas.”

And according to Hometrack, prices in Birmingham are expected to rise by 20-30% over the next three to four years, based on analysis of housing cycles and trends in the market and economy.
