In 2008 Liverpool was the European Capital of Culture, therefore becoming the first city in England to be awarded the title. One of the major cities in the UK, and home to nearly half a million residents, Liverpool now lies at the heart of the 2nd round of economic investment from the UK Government's Northern Powerhouse Scheme, deeming it as one of the hottest investment locations in the country. With severe housing shortage of 40,000 homes in the city centre and a growing population, Liverpool presents the perfect investment landscape and was voted by Totally Money 2017 as the hottest UK location for buy to let property.
The cities rich cultural history, marine port and it's two premier league football teams are the first affiliations people make with the city, often unaware of the major evolution and transformation the city has experienced over the last 100 years from the industrial metropolis of the UK to one of the fastest growing 21st century economies.

Liverpool's economy is the fastest growing out of all Northern Powerhouse City Regions. The Northern Powerhouse is a Central Government backed investment to boost economic growth in the North of England and balance the UK economy between the North and South of the country, the core cities of Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds, Sheffield and Newcastle.
The scheme takes on the job of improving transport links, investment in science and innovation and devolution of powers in City Deals. Over the course of the scheme, we will see £3.4bn invested into growth deals, £70m into education, £13bn on transport, and a further £445m invested into improving the quality of life for each of the core cities growing population. Liverpool now leads the way, as the city benefiting most now in this second phase of the scheme while other cities such as Manchester have already seen the bulk of the effects from the investment.
