WAVTEQ has announced the launch of UK INVESTMENT MONITOR (UKIM), a unique platform to track the expansion of UK-headquartered companies domestically within the UK, across all regions and sectors.
With 4000+ greenfield investment projects tracked since January 2017, UK INVESTMENT MONITOR fills a key gap in the market, identifying in real-time which UK companies are expanding and the locations in which they are choosing to invest.
The tool analyses geographic and sector investment flows across the UK, providing local and regional governments valuable insights on regional performance and the fastest growing sectors.
Chris Knight, Chief Commercial Officer & Co-Founder, WAVTEQ, commented, "We created the tool in the aftermath of Brexit as we believed there would be a lot more interest in what companies are doing domestically in the UK. UK INVESTMENT MONITOR is truly a unique tool that will allow local IPAs, Local Enterprise Partnerships and Consultants to analyse in real-time the UK investment landscape and target UK growth companies with the 'Project Leads' feature. "
With two-thirds of inward investment projects in the U.K coming from domestic companies, UK INVESTMENT MONITOR gives investment promotion professionals the latest insights, trends and leads on the UK's domestic investment landscape.
