LA named world's best city for investment
July 18, 2017
Los Angeles has topped the Schroders Global Cities 30 index this year, jumping to top spot after being 6th in 2016.
The index looks at factors such as university rankings, projected growth of the economy and disposable income over the next decade. All factors determine which cities can provide the best potential for superior investment returns.
This year university rankings were included, greatly affecting the outcome. Hugo Machin, co-Head of Global Real Estate Securities believes this is because “Universities are critical in powering city economies. Innovation and education provide a better-trained, more productive workforce. Knowledge-based hubs are growing in economic strength with a positive knock-on to real estate markets in those locations.”

Every year more and more companies are moving to LA to swell these branches of the economy, growth that is necessary to deal with demand and innovation. Companies such as Facebook, Google, Disney and Warner Bros are either based or have a large presence in Los Angeles.
