EY’s attractiveness survey: Europe 2015 Comeback time
FDI inflows into Europe rose by 36% in 2014, the biggest increase among major regions. This year, investors have ranked Western Europe (50%) as the world’s most attractive FDI destination for the second year running.

The global uptick in M&A was mirrored in Europe, where companies began a wave of consolidation in financial services, pharmaceuticals, manufacturing and communications. The weakening of the euro, which has accelerated since year-end, has made many Continental European assets or investment projects more affordable, especially for those paying in dollars, pounds or Swiss francs.

But investors may also have reacted to the first signs of a long-overdue and multispeed European economic recovery that has since been confirmed, which is encouraging a rising wave of business investment across the region. In the final quarter of 2014, a sharp fall in energy prices also bolstered Europe’s attractiveness and stimulated its nascent economic recovery.

The World's Most Influential Cities |
In order to quantify cities’ global influence, we looked at eight factors: the amount of foreign direct investment they have attracted; the concentration of corporate headquarters; how many particular business niches they dominate; air connectivity (ease of travel to other global cities); strength of producer services; financial services; technology and media power; and racial diversity. (Click here for a more detailed description of our methodology.) We found those factors particularly important in identifying rising stars that, someday, might challenge the current hegemony of our two top-ranked global cities, London and New York.
