With a market of nearly 70 million inhabitants, the UK is the world’s fifth largest economy, with London contributing more than 20% of the country’s GDP. Economic growth is historically driven by services, supported by the financial services sector and a vibrant fintech ecosystem. The manufacturing sector offers targeted opportunities for performance applications. Pharma/medtech thrives thanks to best-in-class science combined with accelerated access to the NHS’s data pools, the largest single-payer healthcare system in the world.
