Derby in the City

Guests at Marketing Derby's London Embassy, held on the 34th floor of Broadgate Tower, courtesy of global law firm Reed Smith, heard how Derby has significant investment opportunities, backed-up by a strong supporting economy.

Marketing Derby MD, John Forkin, presented a compelling case for the city and county to a room of investors and developers, confirming Derby as the number one city in the UK for disposable income.

With over 4,000 residential units under construction, in planning or completed in its square mile city centre, Derby is firmly on the radar of residential investors.

Keynote speaker, Ed Fowkes, COO at Prosperity Capital Partners, spoke about the multiple investments it had already made in the city and the confidence it had in the viability of future schemes in Derby.

Also speaking at the event was Donna Smith, Sales Director at Wavensmere Homes - a recent investor in the city through the acquisition of the Nightingale Quarter; a landmark 20-acre site based in the heart of Derby city centre, offering a true regeneration opportunity to help shape place. Donna spoke of Derby as an untapped city for investment and opportunity.
