Singapore is the world’s most attractive city for investment, according to a report from JLL Real Views.

The report uses fDiIntelligence data to outline the cities that are most attractive to investors by the number of greenfield investment projects in 2014.

The following chart is taken from the report and highlights the positions of the ‘Big Six’ cities activities – London, New York, Paris, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Singapore. These are the six cities that have absorbed the biggest shares of financial and business services.

Following Singapore in second place is London, while Shanghai completes the top three.

The list has a strong European and Asian feel, and is dominated by some of the world’s major financial centres. However, there is place for Bangalore in 8th – reflecting global interest in India as an investment market, as highlighted by a recent EY report.

Two Australian and US cities – Melbourne and Sydney, and New York and San Francisco – also feature, as well as Toronto and Dubai.
