Why do overseas investors still love the UK

While the UK economy continues to suffer we are seeing literally billions of pounds of overseas money, predominately from the Middle East, pumped into the UK economy. There have been a number of astute takeovers, property companies have reported approaches and there was the multi-billion pound investment in alternative energy just a few days ago. So why do overseas investment companies still love the UK?

Whether you are looking at business, finance or property there is no doubt that the UK has been one of the more buoyant countries around the world over the last 50 years. Even though the country has had its ups and downs the general trend has been upwards and the UK is still very much a central partner in the EU even though it has side stepped issues such as the Euro.

Overseas investors see a country with a buoyant long term economy, a country which is literally on its knees at the moment but a country which will bounce back in due course. The investors from the Middle East are happy to buy assets with a long term view and many believe there are some great deals around at the moment. Unlike the speculators they are not in it for the short term and are happy to take longer term positions.
