Return on investment: Who funds levelling up?

If levelling up is to be successful, it will require investment, often in places with lower growth and productivity. While institutional investors are increasingly investing outside London and the South East, the pools of capital available often pale into comparison with funding pots available in the City of London. How can we unleash more financial support to regional regeneration, when land values and structure factors hold back potential returns? This session explores the options for financing levelling up.

Speakers:

  • Rt Hon Jesse Norman MP, Financial Secretary to the Treasury
  • Felicity Buchan MP, Member of Parliament for Kensington
  • Gareth Davies MP, Member of Parliament for Grantham and Stamford
  • Rupert Harrison, HMT Former Chair, Council of Economic Advisors
  • Catherine McGuinness, Policy Chair, City of London Corporation
