The investment figures are published on a net basis, that is, they consist of investments net of disinvestments.

Investment flows, positions (stocks) and earnings, inward (to the UK from abroad) and outward (by UK companies abroad) by country, component and industry.

Main Points
  • The value of the UKs Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) positions abroad (outward investment) increased from 1,084.0 billion in 2015 to 1,212.8 billion in 2016, which is partly explained by the depreciation in the pound sterling exchange rate.
  • The value of FDI positions held by foreign investors in the UK (inward investment) increased from 1,032.5 billion in 2015 to 1,199.5 billion in 2016, which is largely explained by a pickup in inward mergers & acquisitions activity.
  • Geographical breakdowns presented in this bulletin show that the rise in both inward and outward FDI positions in 2016 was mostly attributable to Europe. For outward, this was due to increases across most European countries, with Luxembourg and the Netherlands seeing the largest growth. The majority of the rise in inward FDI positions from Europe were mainly attributable to large inward flows in 2016.
  • Net earnings from direct investment abroad by UK companies (outward earnings) fell from 57.2 billion in 2015 to 50.4 billion in 2016. This is the fifth consecutive fall since 2011 and largely reflects the continued fall in the rate of return the UK generates on its outward FDI.
  • Net earnings from direct investment in the UK (inward earnings) increased from 48.2 billion in 2015 to 52.1 billion in 2016. The fall in outward FDI earnings and increase in inward FDI earnings has resulted in the UKs FDI earnings balance becoming slightly negative in 2016 the first time this has happened since the comparable time series began in 2006.
  • Net flows of FDI abroad (outward flows) continued to be negative in 2016, with a net disinvestment of 16.5 billion, although this was lower than the 42.9 billion disinvestment recorded in 2015.
  • Net flows of FDI into the UK (inward flows) increased from 25.3 billion in 2015 to 145.6 billion in 2016, the largest value recorded since the comparable time series began in 2006. The large value of inward FDI flows recorded were dominated by a handful of high-value M&A deals in 2016; large publically reported transactions in 2016 included the acquisitions of SABMiller, ARM Holdings and BG Group.
