The new UK Investment Support Directory is a listing of private sector providers who can support foreign investors setting up or expanding in the UK.

The International Trade Secretary, Liam Fox, announced the call for business applications to be members of this Directory at the Board of Trade meeting in Swansea on Thursday 15 November.

The application window opened on Friday 16th November and will close at 11:59pm Monday 17th December.

Membership will be free and will promote the investor expertise of the UK’s service sector to investors across the globe. The Directory will be made up of a number of service sectors throughout the UK including, but not limited to, accountants, lawyers, management consultants and publicity professionals.

Membership will provide you with an opportunity to be part of a national Directory where, if successful, your industry, regional and international expertise will be vital to investors looking for specialised support to meet their needs. It provides a great opportunity for business looking to further expand their network and increase their visibility to foreign investors across new international markets.

If you are interested in applying, you will need to complete and submit the application form, demonstrating that your company meets our membership criteria. The application form can be downloaded from the GOV.UK website.

Completed applications should be sent to investmentdirectoryapplications@trade.gov.uk. Please note that Directory membership will not equate to a partnership with DIT.
