UK no longer one of top five sites for investment after Brexit
Britain after the June vote ranks as the seventh most desirable destination for mergers and acquisitions, following the United States, China, Germany, Canada, France and Japan.
This is according to the Global Capital Confidence Barometer survey done by Ernst & Young, one of the global "big four" accounting firms.
The country was only second to the United States in the firm's last report released before the referendum.
Investors from China, the United States and Japan showed the largest downturns as they fear Britain can no longer function as a "gateway into Europe," said the latest report that had sought the opinions of more than 1,700 executives from 18 sectors in 45 countries and regions. ■
